History of Yoe Football (2015)

After capturing their third straight state championship, the Yoemen, with eight offensive and eight defensive starters back, were a unanimous favorite to make four in a row.  Texas Football picked them number one, but with a long sixteen game season, anything could go wrong.

 

The Yoemen would get revenge for three of their four losses from 2014, and were so close to avenging the fourth.  They started by blasting Waco Connally (63-14) and Lexington (67-12).  Then they travelled to China Spring to try to avenge a (23-14) loss to the Cougars a year ago.  China Spring returned almost everyone and would go on to finish (12-2) with both losses coming to state 4A division one champion La Vega in district and regional.  The Yoemen fell behind, but did not quit, taking a lead with just over a minute left.  The Cougars, however, showed they were championship quality as they scored a late TD to win (43-41).  Waco officials made their presence known also.

Yoe Band superior at UIL regional competition

This past Wednesday, the C.H. Yoe High School Band competed in the UIL regional marching contest from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor.  All the hard work during the summer months leading up to this point payed off as the band took home the superior straight one rating. 

 

“The kids did absolutely great,” said band director Craig George.  “From a marching standpoint, they did extremely well, and from a playing standpoint, they did really, really well.  Everything from their body posture to their confidence was great.  I was extremely pleased with the group, especially where they have come from the last two months.  I am really proud the way our younger kids have progressed.”

 

The regional marching contest features many different bands from one section of the state.  Each band is graded individually on how well they march and play.

Week 11 Football Outlook

Cameron Yoemen - Off Week

The Yoemen took care of business on the road last week at Troy, 56-20.  It was somewhat of a struggle early on, but the game was put away in the second half.  Having your off week at the end of the season allows for two things.  For one, every team at this point in the season has their bumps and bruises, and this will give everyone an extra week to recuperate.  Additionally, Cameron already knows that they will be playing West in the bi-district round of the playoffs, so there are now two weeks to prepare for that game.  In the playoffs, consistently strong performances will be key for Cameron as you cannot have a bad or down week in region III.  If the Yoemen execute offensively, they will score points.  The defense will need to force teams to drive the field and limit big plays.  This Yoemen team has aspirations of getting back to state, and that is most certainly within reach as the talent and ability is there.

Yoemen end regular season with big win over Troy

In Cameron's final regular season game, the ultimate goal was to win and secure at worst the number three seed in the playoffs out of district 10-3A.  

 

All of that was accomplished and more as the Yoemen used 36 points in the second half to pull away from the Troy Trojans, 56-20.  

 

The game had it's ups and downs, but the Yoemen managed to grind through all of it, putting up over 500 yards of total offense on the night.  

 

"That is the thing about our kids," said Yoemen head coach Tommy Brashear.  "Something bad might happen, but I felt like our kids hung through the adversity tonight and played hard.  I thought they played hard all night long.  We had a lot of different kids in there and they did a great job.  I was very proud of the way we responded to adversity."

Week 10 Football Outlook

Cameron Yoe (7-2/4-1) Vs. Troy (4-4/2-2)

After the loss to Rockdale, it was very important for the Yoemen to respond.  The 63-0 win over Academy this past week went about as well as you could have expected, as the Yoemen were dominant in every phase of the game.  This week’s contest versus Troy is even more important.  Cameron has a bye the last week of the regular season, so this is the final tune-up for the playoffs.  Since 2010, the Yoemen have been very dominant in this last district game, with wins over Troy in 2010 (48-14), Troy in 2011 (38-7), Florence in 2012 (56-0), Florence in 2013 (77-0), Academy in 2014 (47-7) and Academy in 2015 (49-14).  Cameron has traditionally given Troy problems and will have a big advantage in the speed category.  At the end of the day, another strong, well executed performance is what all Yoe fans should look for this week. 

Josh’s Pick: Cameron Yoe by 28+.

Yoemen aim to close regular season on a high note

 

If you look back over the past six football seasons, you will notice a very consistent theme - Cameron has always closed out the regular season on a high note. 

 

Since 2010, the Yoemen have a scoring advantage of 315 to 42 in these final games.  On Friday night in Troy, Coach Tommy Brashear and the Yoemen will look to continue a trend that has proven to be a good omen before the start of the playoffs. 

 

“I think you definitely want to finish the regular season on a high note,” said Brashear.  “For us, the win is the most important thing, but you want to go into that last game looking sharp like I felt like we did the other night versus Academy.  That's what we want to look like in this game with Troy.”

 

Troy is once again the mix for a playoff spot.  The Trojans sit at 4-4 on the season and are 2-2 in 10-3A play.

Lady Yoe close out season

On Tuesday, the Lady Yoe volleyball team closed out the season by hosting the Franklin Lady Lions from Yoe Gym.   Cameron had an up and down season, which included most of district action.  Entering play on Tuesday evening, Cameron sat at 2-11 in 20-3A, with the sole two wins coming over Hearne, which was winless at 0-13. 

 

In addition to volleyball, the Cameron Junior High girls program hosted their Dig Pink bake sale.  All proceeds from Dig Pink go directly to breast cancer research.

 

In the match, Franklin overwhelmed Cameron much of the night in a 25-16, 25-12 and 25-19 loss.  Franklin has been the most consistent team in district action all year, going 12-1 up to this point while sitting all alone at the top of the district.

Dede Westbrook continued his incredible streak of offensive performances this past week at Texas Tech.  The senior caught another nine passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns versus the Red Raiders to improve Oklahoma to 5-2 on the season.

 

Westbrook had been hampered by a muscle injury in the early portion of the season, but the speedy receiver has accumulated 776 yards and 10 touchdowns in Oklahoma’s last four wins over TCU, Texas, Kansas State and Texas Tech. 

 

Westbrook scored three touchdowns and set a school record with 232 receiving yards versus Texas. 

 

Westbrook’s 930 total receiving yards has propelled him to fifth in the nation for all FBS receivers.  The leader, Trent Taylor of Louisiana Tech, has 1,143 yards.  The senior’s 10 touchdown catches is good enough for a tie for second in the country.

Yoemen respond with resounding win over Academy

 

For a lot of teams, there is that time in the season when the light switch turns on.  Cameron, which was coming off of a tough 80-54 loss to arch rival Rockdale just a week ago, was in a position where a response was needed.  

 

On senior night from Yoe Field, Cameron (7-2/3-1) lit up just about every light possible in a crushing 63-0 victory over the Academy Bumblebees (4-4/1-3).    

"We had a good week of practice," said Yoemen head coach Tommy Brashear.  "Our kids tend to usually respond well.  I thought we executed well on offense, defense and special teams.  We really focused hard on doing that.  We got beat in all three phases of the game last week, so we talked about taking pride in whatever you do.  We say our program is based on three things: class, integrity and total effort.  I felt like we played like that tonight."

Lady Yoe pick up win in final stretch of season

Lady Yoe pick up win in final stretch of season

 

The 2016 Lady Yoe Volleyball season has been a learning experience under first year head coach Kamol Nohe.  District records are not exactly where the team would like them to be, but continuous improvement has been a key point all season.

 

The ladies had picked up their lone win of the district season in Hearne last month. After Friday’s tough loss to rival Rockdale, the Lady Yoe built some more confidence with a 3-0 sweep of Hearne on Tuesday. 

 

Rockdale

In Friday’s road match at Rockdale, the Lady Yoe battled to take a set, but ended up falling three sets to one: 19-25, 22-25, 25-15, 17-25. 

 

Cameron’s Savannah Kruse had one of her best matches of the year, getting across 17 kills to go along with 17 assists.  The senior also had 11 digs and one block on the night.
