Week 2 Football Outlook











Cameron Yoe (1-0) Vs. Gatesville (0-1)

Last week’s contest with Bellville went about as well as you could have expected.  It was truly one of the most impressive season openers I have personally seen when you take into account the ranking of Bellville and the fact that the game was on the road.  Defensively, Cameron held what is supposed to be a strong slot-t ground attack to under 150 yards while the offense struck on multiple big plays to put the game out of reach by halftime.  The huge matchup with...

Traditionally tough Gatesville next up for the Yoemen















After picking up an impressive week one win over a top ten 4A division II Bellville squad, the Yoemen will now have to deal with another type of challenge.  Unlike Bellville, Gatesville will not be ranked in any poll that you look at.  However, there has been many years in the past where that was the case, but it was the Hornets that ended up surprising the Yoemen.  


In 19 contests, Cameron has an 8-11 all-time record versus Gatesville.  


“I coached at Gatesville a couple of years and I really think Cameron kids underestimate them a little bit,” said Yoemen head coach Tommy Brashear.  “When you watch...

Lady Yoe wrap up non-district play














Last week, the Lady Yoe varsity volleyball team competed in their final tournament of the year at Robinson.  The ladies went 1-5 throughout their two days of play.   


Cameron opened up bracket play on Thursday, losing all three matches to Waco Reicher (16-25, 19-25), Connally (25-23, 13-25, 12-25) and Jewett Leon (15-25, 11-25).  


Savannah Kruse led the Lady Yoe in attacking with 17 kills in the three matches.  Kruse also had 14 assists, 15 digs and 4 aces on the day.  



Associated Press Poll has Yoemen ranked number two

After picking up a big win over state-ranked Bellville last week, the Yoemen moved up one spot in the AP rankings to number two.  The Yoemen were behind Mineola, but the Yellowjackets fell to Van in week one. 



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.

Lady Yoe drop contest to Navasota














The Lady Yoe continued to wind down their non-district schedule on Tuesday by traveling over to Navasota to take on the Lady Rattlers. Cameron kept every set close, but fell in four - 19-25, 25-23, 23-25, 21-25 - to fall to 4-16 on the season.


The Lady Yoe were in good position in the opening set, going up 6-1 before Navasota took over to win the opener. The ladies stayed competitive throughout the second, trailing by only two (16-14, 22-20) twice in the set before rallying late to pick up the 25-23 win. Rallies in both the third and fourth set fell short. Savannah Kruse had...
