Yoe goes 3-0 in pool, upset in first round of 7-on-7 state championships

Heading into last week’s state 7-on-7 championships in College Station, Cameron was slated to be in one of the toughest pools in the entire draw with the likes of Celina, Needville and Abilene Wylie on the schedule. The Yoemen passed that test with flying colors, raising eyebrows with a perfect 3-0 mark.

 

“I was proud of the kids and they way they responded that first day,” said Yoe head football coach Tommy Brashear. “Their focus was good and they came out and started well. Sometimes we tend to get off to slow starts and that was something we had been working on. I was very happy the way they started with Celina.”

 

However, 7-on-7 is known to have its swing of high and lows. In the first round of championship play on Friday morning, the Yoemen fell to Wimberley in an overtime thriller, 28-27.

 

It was a game that went back-and-forth, with the Yoemen having their chances throughout.

Summer baseball heads to Cameron

Despite still being in the early stages of development, The Yards of Cameron is already starting to have its impact on the community. Over the weekend, play from the Team Showcase Baseball League (TSL) moved over to Cameron on Sunday, bringing hundreds of travelers from different parts of the state to town. The showcase tournament was originally scheduled to be completed in Temple, Hillsboro and Corsicana, but rain forced some of those games to the all-turf facility for the final day of play.

 

The TSL is one of a variety of different organizations that host summer baseball across the state. These types of baseball tournaments continue to grow in popularity and a central location for the mid-major markets of Waco and Bryan and major markets of Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio to meet up is desirable, and Cameron is one of the more ideal locations for those tournaments to take place.

Yoemen wrap up play in 7-on-7 league

This Monday, Cameron traveled over to Temple for the final week of 7-on-7 league play. The month-long session of games came to an end with the Yoemen posting a 1-2 record. Cameron dropped the opener to Temple (31-13), defeated Copperas Cove (28-8) and fell to Belton (39-27) in the finale.

 

“I thought we came out slow in that first game,” said Yoe head coach Tommy Brashear. “We kind of have a habit of that. We have some older kids and we need to come out a little faster. We won the second one big and lost the first and last one. The defense finally got a stop in that third game and the offense sputtered twice two series in a row.”

 

Cameron finished with an overall record of 5-4 against the much larger 5A and 6A schools. That included a perfect 3-0 mark in week three when play took place in Cameron. However, wins are secondary when looking at the big picture.

Taking a look at 2017 predictions for Central Texas teams

Last week, we found out that the Cameron Yoemen would have the targets on their back with the preseason number one rankings in 3A division one. This week, we are going to dig a little deeper and take a look at district projections for 10-3A and other Central Texas districts, plus highlight some of the players mentioned.

 

10-3A

The Yoemen return more starters than any other team in the district. Rockdale, Troy and Academy each return 12, Franklin has nine, McGregor comes in with eight and Jarrell has five coming back.

 

Cameron (1), Rockdale (10) and Franklin (12) are all ranked in the 3A poll.

Yoe basketball competes at state

For the first time in school history, the Yoe basketball team competed in state basketball tournament this past weekend in the Dallas/Forth Worth area. Cameron did not manage to win a game, finishing 0-6, but the experienced gained should prove to be beneficial for new head coach Nicholas Burns and his attempt to build the program.

 

Cameron lost pool games to Kemp (43-37), Peaster (61-55), Texarkana Pleasant Grove (80-68) and Princeton (35-20). Despite the four losses, Cameron was still in the championship bracket and drew Holliday, which went 3-1 in their pool play games. The Yoemen dropped that game, 48-34, and another consolation game to Palmer, 43-36 to wrap up tournament play.

 

Bowie ended up knocking off Holliday in the championship game, 52-44.

7-on-7 state tournament preview

Before the start of 2-a-days in just over a month’s time, Cameron will have a few more opportunities to improve on their game. That starts this Thursday and Friday with the state 7-on-7 tournament in College Station.

 

The brackets for the tournament were released on Saturday and the Yoemen find themselves in pool K with Abilene Wylie, Celina and Needville. The pool is considered by some experts as the toughest in the field of 64 teams.

 

“We have a lot of good teams,” said Yoe head coach Tommy Brashear. “Celina is always good. Needville is there every year You have Abilene Wylie which is known for their football. If it’s not the toughest it’s got to be up there with them. It only makes us better. We will get after it and compete and make Cameron proud.”
