Lady Steers open regular season

August 9, 2011

Fresh off of a weekend filled with scrimmage action, the Lady Steers will be on the road tonight as they head east to take on the Eagles of Abilene High School. The game is scheduled for a 5 p.m. start in Abilene, preceded by JV and freshman games.

The Lady Steers take the court this year with an experienced team, having lost only three players to graduation this last summer. Head Coach Lynn Osborne said she was ready to get the girls on the court and see what they could do.

Heat changes football practices

August 4, 2011

With this summer's unusually hot conditions, the coaching staff at Big Spring have instituted some changes when it comes to football practices. Two-a-days still started Aug. 1, as they did across the state and most of the nation, but a concentrated effort is being made to keep the players hydrated and ensure their safety.

“We have scheduled water breaks throughout our practices,” Head Coach Phillip Ritchey said. “In addition, the boys are encouraged to go get water any time they need it. We don't want them wasting time asking. We want them to just go get it.”

Steers begin 2011 campaign

August 2, 2011

The Big Spring Steers began two-a-day practices today at the ATC. Steers Head Coach Phillip Ritchey and his coaching staff began the day by running the players through basic warm-up routines, before breaking them down into individual skill stations.

The large group of football players took the field in a run and never slowed down during the practice, even when the sun started to get high in the sky and the temperatures got even higher. Each drill was finished with the players yawping, ”Win!”
