Yoemen take down #7 Bellville, 33-10

The Cameron Yoemen opened the 2016 season on Friday night by defeating the highly touted Bellville Brahmas, 33-10.  The Brahmas, which are ranked inside the top ten of multiple 4A division two polls, only managed one touchdown off of the stingy Yoe defense.  Meanwhile, the Yoe offense was proficient, scoring three touchdowns in the first half while taking a commanding 20-3 lead into the locker room at the half.  Bellville managed to get the game to as close as 26-10 in the third quarter, but the Yoemen quickly dashed any hopes of a comeback after a Sicory Smith 72-yard pass from quarterback Zack Andress early on in the fourth quarter. 



Yoemen begin 2016 season with top 10 Bellville














Once the non-district schedule was released for the Yoemen, everyone in Cameron knew there were going to be some very tough challenges in the early going.  That first challenge begins this Friday night at the "Pasture of Pain" in Bellville as the Yoemen kick off the 2016 season.  Bellville, coming off a state quarterfinal appearance a year ago, enters this season ranked inside the top 10 of most major 4A DII polls across the state.  "Bellville is a lot like Cameron," said Yoemen head coach Tommy Brashear.  



Week 1 Football Outlook











Cameron Yoe Vs. Bellville

If the Brahmas end up being as good as their preseason number seven ranking in the state, then this would be the toughest season opener for Cameron since the 2000 season with Gatesville. The Hornets won that game (34-2) and went on to win the state championship over Abilene Wylie (14-10) to finish the season a perfect 15-0. I believe there will be a few key matchups in this game to watch. Bellville runs the slot-t offense.

The Lady Yoe were in good position in the opening set, going up 6-1 before Navasota took over to win the opener.

Workouts begin as fall sports season is just around the corner

Yoe quarterback Zack Andress goes through drills during the first week of two-a-day football practices.  

Though it seems to be getting hotter by the week, that has not stopped the Yoe athletes from preparing for the start of a new sports season.


On Monday, over 150 Yoe athletes participated in the first day of summer workouts.


The Yoemen football team had 86 members out for the first day of practice. That number is expected to rise to around 90 once all physicals have been completed.


“The first day went really well,” said Yoemen head football coach and athletic director Tommy Brashear. “I was pleased with the kids attitudes. There was a lot of excitement for the the first day. I enjoyed their work ethic. If we keep working like that, then we ought to be pretty good.”
