Coahoma High School head coach Trey Gardner and Forsan head coach Jason Phillips had a lot in common on Friday night as they watched their two teams square off in season-opening “Howard Bowl.” Both were less than pleased with the way their team’s played. Mistakes. Turnovers. Penalties. Missed opportunities. In the end, however, Gardner had a little less to be unhappy about.
Steers win season opener in dramatic fashion with a 41-yard "Hail Mary" pass in the end zone as time expires.
MONAHANS – The Big Spring High School defense had every chance in the world to fold up like a cheap suit on Friday night in front of a large crowd at Estes Memorial Stadium. Sure. At times, they were pushed around more than a lawnmower in Florida as they gave up 364 yards. Sure. They got a little help from the officiating crew that overturned a fourth-quarter touchdown that would have given the Loboes a lead with just ovet 2 minutes to play.
Kyler Franks and Joseph Melendez both rushed for a pair of touchdowns and helped the Bulldogs reel off a convincing 38-7 rout of the McCamey Badgers on Friday in front of a large crowd at Bulldog Stadium.
Jesse Cervantes rushed for three touchdowns on Friday night and helped the Forsan Buffaloes scratch their way into the win column with a dominating 57-0 rout of the Plains Cowboys.

September 14, 2013

Big Spring rebounded from last week’s loss to Midland Christian in dramatic fashion Friday as the Steers (2-1) pummeled San Angelo Lake View 48-0 in front of an energetic homecoming crowd to earn their second shutout in three games.

Coahoma loses to Colorado City on the road

September 14, 2013

COLORADO CITY — Coahoma dropped to 0-3 for the season Friday after a 45-8 loss on the road to Colorado City, but when you’re dealing with a team as young as CHS Head Coach Trey Gardner, you have to find the silver linings and build upon them.

One aspect of the game Gardner’s Bulldogs usually shine in is fortitude. Heart is rarely an issue for Coahoma teams and according to Gardner, it was on display Friday despite the lopsided final score.

Steers open with 49-0 rout of Fort Stockton

August 31, 2013

If you're a Steer fan, Friday's game against Fort Stockton may have seemed liked deja vu, as Big Spring trounced the Panthers 49-0 for the second straight year in its opener. Except this time, the venue was Memorial Stadium and the Steers dazzled a home crowd.

“We expected to play well,” BSHS Head Coach Phillip Ritchey said. “When you have that many guys on offense and defense who have been there before, you expect them to play well.”

Lady Steers take 5-of-7 at Granbury

August 26, 2013

GRANBURY — The Lady Steers began their weekend tournament with a loss to Mansfield Summit on Friday, but then won their next five-of-six matches to take third place in the Silver Division.

Big Spring is gearing up for a tough District 4-3A schedule which includes Abilene Wylie and Monahans, both highly touted teams along with BSHS.

Big Spring Head Volleyball Coach Lynn Osborne believes there are no teams you can take lightly once district play begins.

She schedules as many larger schools and fiercely competitive opponents as possible to prepare her players for what lies ahead.

Lady Steers dominate Andrews, Coahoma falters against Loraine

August 21, 2013

BIG SPRING
The Lady Steers weren't very gracious hosts to Andrews Tuesday, as Big Spring's volleyball program rolled over the Lady Mustangs in three sets, winning by scores of 25-7, 25-14 and 25-12.

The dominating performance was keyed by strong setting, offense and defense, while Andrews sputtered from the start, unable to string together a meaningful run.

“We're starting at a very high spot,” BSHS Head Coach Lynn Osborne said of her team this season. “They're probably the most solid team coming in that I've ever coached. They did a good job last night.”

August 14, 2013

ABILENE — Big Spring is ranked among the best in the state at the 3A level, but it's still tournament time as BSHS Head Coach Lynn Osborne guides her team through the predistrict leg of the season.

So far, so good. The Lady Steers earned a split at the Abilene Cooper/Abilene High dual meet on Tuesday, losing to the 5A Lady Eagles in three: 25-27, 23-25 and 18-25, but defeating Cooper in four sets: 21-25, 25-21, 25-19 and 15-9.

Coahoma's Trey Gardner — rebuilding the Bulldogs in '13

August 9, 2013

COAHOMA — Decimated by injuries in 2012, The Coahoma Bulldogs — who expected a playoff berth at the very least — were forced to settle for a 2-8 record. With just about every starter absent at some point during the season, CHS Head Coach Trey Gardner had to improvise. He played backups, he pulled guys from junior varsity, he changed up positions — anything to keep 11 relatively healthy players on the field.
