FORSAN — It was a must-win scenario for the Buffaloes. A victory over the Winters Blizzards, and Forsan Head Coach Jason Phillips' squad makes a playoff appearance. A loss and they are done for the season.

November 10, 2012

COAHOMA — With the injuries Coahoma has faced to its position players, it seemed a bit like a David vs. Goliath affair as the Bulldogs hosted the perennially robust Alpine Bucks on Friday to close out their season.

This time, Goliath won.

Despite a characteristic strong showing from the 'Dogs, Alpine went home the victors with a 53-25 win, cementing its District 3-2A title.

As for Coahoma, Head Coach Trey Gardner hopes the grit shown by his seniors set a good example for the underclassmen poised to fill their shoes.

Forsan falls to 8-0 Anson, Coahoma bested by Reagan County

November 3, 2012

ANSON — If the Tigers' 9-0 record doesn't convine you they are for real, take Forsan Head Coach Jason Phillips' word for it.

“Anson is a good football team on both sides of the ball,” Phillips said of the Tigers, who defeated the Buffs 49-7 Friday night in Anson. “They are real physical up front.”

Forsan held a 7-6 lead headed into the second quarter after senior running back Brendan Roman scored a rushing touchdown, but Anson — who went 0-10 last year — pulled away from the Buffaloes by scoring 43 unanswered points through the remaining three quarters of play.

Howard County Players of the Week

October 31, 2012

Big Spring
The Steers have lost three straight. After a nearly flawless 5-0 start, Big Spring has yet to taste victory in District 4-3A. It appears unlikely — barring some miracle — the Steers will be making a playoff appearance. It may sound bleak, but this time last season, the Steers were winless. With that perspective, 5-3 isn’t all that bad.

Steers upset by Snyder 31-21

October 20, 2012

SNYDER — After scoring a touchdown on its opening possession — a 31-yard run from sophomore quarterback Tobyn Tannehill — it appeared Big Spring was eager to redeem last week's District 4-3A opening loss against a Abilene Wylie with a convincing victory over the Snyder Tigers on the road.

Instead, costly Steer turnovers and a handful of momentum-changing plays resulted in Big Spring coming away with their second loss of the season and a 0-2 conference record as Snyder outlasted the Steers 31-21.
