Yoe gets first look at opponent in scrimmage

One of the more exciting moments of the year is when a football team gets to go up against an opponent for the first time. It not only gives players an opportunity to hit someone other than their teammates, but it means that the start of the new season is only weeks away.

 

The Cameron Yoemen got that opportunity last Friday night in Lorena. The scrimmage followed the same format as previous scrimmages with each first and second team offense getting two series apiece during the controlled portion. In the 12 minute live quarter, the Leopards punched in two scores in two attempts while the Yoemen scored once in their two possessions for a 12-7 final.

Non-district slate continues for Lady Yoe

The Cameron Lady Yoe are now in the thick of their non-district schedule. Cameron just completed their second tournament of the year at Leon this past week and will be in Robinson starting today. Cameron also has regular matches sandwiched in-between all of that. One of those games occurred Tuesday evening with Gatesville coming to Yoe Gym.

 

Cameron started off hot as they have plenty of times this season, taking the opening set off of the Lady Hornets, 25-20.

 

However, the tide of momentum turned after that as Gatesville took sets three and four with the same 25-21 scores before coasting in the fourth, 25-15 to take the match.

 

Gracen Dach’s all around efforts on the court helped Cameron take the opener. Dach had a pair of aces early on to put Cameron up 4-3 and then 6-3. Up 24-20, she wrapped up the set by pounding home a kill in the middle of the court.

Westbrook shines in loss to Tampa Bay

For a majority of Jacksonville’s second preseason game versus Tampa Bay, the offense looked flat. That was until Dede Westbrook entered the game in the fourth quarter. The former Yoemen made his case to get into the starting rotation, hauling in 6 catches for 131 yards. The remainder of the receiving core had a total of just 121 yards throughout the entire game. After two complete preseason games, Westbrook currently leads all the NFL with 173 receiving yards. Kasen Williams of Seattle is currently in second with 147 yards. Westbrook and the Jaguars will next be in action tonight with the Carolina Panthers traveling to Florida.

Week 1 Scrimmage Outlooks

It’s that time of the year again. No, it’s not quite the start of the 2017 Texas high school football season, but it’s the next best thing in scrimmages. These are not official games, but it’s a very important time for coaches to gauge different positions and see where work is needed before the games really start to matter.

 

This week, I want to highlight some scrimmages around this area that I feel are noteworthy.

Top 13 Games Since 2010 - Finale

Today marks the final chapter in my top 13 Yoemen football games since 2010. Out of all of the variables measured to be included in this series, this game had a check mark up and down the list. Without further ado, the number game is the 2012 semifinal victory over Newton, 39-22.

 

Out of a very large amount of games played since that 2010 season, this one always comes back to be as the most special. Why? Well, there are a few reasons.

 

This was one of the best football games I have ever seen in person.

These are two programs that are known as powerhouses within their respective regions of the state.

Cameron and Newton both had state championship caliber football teams that season.

Lady Yoe Volleyball opens 2017 season

The first official regular season sporting event of the 2017-2018 school year got underway on Tuesday from Yoe Gym. The Lady Yoe volleyball team began their season by hosting the Lady Vikings of Lago Vista and the Thrall Tigerettes.

 

The competition was fierce, as Lago Vista was in the second round of the 3A playoffs last season while Thrall had advanced all the way to the 2A state tournament.

 

The ladies opened up things with a competitive match versus Lago Vista, falling in four sets: 15-25, 28-26, 25-16, 25-23.

 

For head coach Kamol Nohe, he is already seeing improvement from a season ago.

 

“I think this group is a different group of kids,” said the Lady Yoe head coach. “Last year, it was 0-3 and 0-3 early on, but coming in here we won the second set. That was a breakthrough. There are more breakthroughs coming along. The kids are really motivated and we just have to shape them to where they need to go.”
