Yoe impresses in Madisonville

The Yoemen hit the road to close out their scrimmage schedule last Thursday in Madisonville. One of the main talking points after week one was to be a week better in week two, and after Thursday it would be hard to say that was not accomplished, as the Yoemen looked impressive on both sides of the ball in what was a five touchdown to zero advantage.

 

“I think they are a little young this year, but regardless I was looking to see if we were fixing our mistakes, and I feel like we did that tonight,” said Yoe coach Tommy Brashear. “I thought we did some good things in the run game and in the pass game as well. We ran routes better and read things better. I know we still made mistakes because I saw them live, but we will go to work to fix those.”

Week 1 Scrimmage Outlooks

Lorena Vs. Cameron Yoe - Friday - Yoe Field

The Yoemen will finally get to knock around someone other than themselves on Friday when the Lorena Leopards come to town. Under coach Ray Biles, Lorena has always put together a solid product on the field and this will be a good early look for Coach Tommy Brashear and his team.  

 

The Leopards are returning a total of five starters on each side of the ball from a team that finished with a 5-7 record and an area round loss to Madisonville, 45-35. Lorena is predicted to finish in fourth place in 8-4A DII this year behind Fairfield, Madisonville and Waco Connally, and ahead of Salado, Mexia and Robinson.

Lady Yoe dominant in own tourney

The Cameron Lady Yoe have been perfect as of late. Over the weekend, the ladies went a perfect 4-0 in their own tournament and dominated the competition in the process. The Lady Yoe left no doubt in any of their four tournament wins, sweeping the competition 12 sets to zero.  

 

“This is exciting this year,” said coach Kamol Nohe. “We came in with high expectations with three seniors that have put in a lot of time and effort. It’s time for them to push through and their leadership is helping us solidify and become stronger. We just have to stay focused and build from here.”

 

Cameron did not let that momentum slip up on Monday when they traveled to Vanguard Prep in Waco, pulling out a four-set win while extending the win streak to five.

Lady Yoe suffers opening loses

Cameron’s opening two matches the 2018 season did not go as planned, as the Lady Yoe dropped back-to-back contests to Lago Vista and Thrall on Monday.

 

The ladies were swept by the Lady Vikings, 25-22, 25-20 and 25-13, before falling to Trall, 25-18, 18-25, 20-25, 22-25 to begin the season with an 0-2 mark.

 

The ladies struggled most of the their opening match with Lago Vista, but picked things up with Thrall, taking the opening set in convincing fashion.

 

Dach was key at the service line, stringing together 6 consecutive Lady Yoe points to build a 17-14 lead, forcing a Thrall timeout. The lead grew to 19-14 before Dach finally ended her run with a serve into the next.

 

Carley Tucker, Cameron’s leading returning attacker, had 11 attacks and 7 kills in the first set alone. However, the ladies started to commit errors from that point forward and that was the difference in the end.

Yoe begins two-a-day practices

 

On Monday, the Yoemen got the first practice of the year under their belts. As you would anticipate for the first day of action, there was a lot of excitement in the air and things went well for the group as a whole.

 

“It was a great day one,” said third-year head football coach Tommy Brashear. “The kids had a lot of energy, the competition was good, and the leaders were getting the people going. It was a great, upbeat practice. I’m optimistic about day two, but the trick is putting a bunch of those together.”

 

The numbers once again appear to be solid for the four-time state champs, whom had 102 kids out for the first day of workouts.

Keen’s compete in the Tevis Cup

Both Beth and Dale Keen competed in the Tevis Cup horse race this past week, and made admirable showings for their first time out. Both riders made it to the 50-mile mark before they had to pull out due to time restrictions.

 

“We just got behind the time cut off,” said Dale Keen. “We made it 50 miles but were behind the cutoff, so we had to drop out.”

 

According to Keen, only 42 percent of the riders actually finished the race this year, with a good portion coming out for lameness or metabolic reasons.

 

“It is a great event and it was nice to be apart of something like that, “added Keen. “The trail seemed like almost every step was up or down. It’s also real rocky and hot. We did pretty good and took care of our horses like everyone should, but maybe we could have been a little more daring.”

My Top High School Football Stadiums

Football and Texas go hand in hand. Everything is bigger in the Lone Star state, and so are the stadiums that these teams play in every Friday night. Thanks to some extended runs over the last several years, Yoe fans have been able to travel to many different parts of the state and have witnessed games in some of the most state of the art stadiums in the country.

 

Today, I want to list some of my personal favorites. Most of these are going to be playoff venues, but there are a few small-school stadiums I would like to recognize. I will not be including any pro or collegiate stadiums on this list.
