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.

Tannehill's NFL draft tops 2012 Year in Review

December 31, 2012

It was a year full of surprises.

The biggest sports headline in the Crossroads may have been the 2012 NFL draft. Big Spring native and Texas A&M alum Ryan Tannehill was chosen as the eighth overall pick by the Miami Dolphins to add some stability to the vaunted quarterback position.

While the locals may have had faith in Tannehill, many sports world talking heads remained skeptical. Boy, were they wrong.

Tannehill may not have sizzled in the rookie record realm, but he showed he had the leadership qualities to direct a pro squad and the determination to win.

Steers fall twice, ladies split in holiday tourneys

BRIDGEPORT — The Steers (5-12) met two larger schools Friday — Saginaw and Fort Worth Western Hills — and lost both outings as Big Spring dropped Game One to Saginaw 63-45 and Game Two to Western Hills 61-48.
Despite the mismatch in enrollment numbers, BSHS Head Coach Cliff

Thompson cited a lack of consistency as the reason for the losses.
“We started off playing well against Saginaw, but then we had a terrible third quarter,” Thompson said. “We turned the ball over four or five times and (Saginaw) scored on all of them. We just didn't play all four quarters.”

FORSAN — The Buffaloes will be losing some gridiron stalwarts this year, including quarterback Marcus Cervantes, safety Trevor Burchett and runningback Brendan Roman.

Luckily for Head Football Coach Jason Phillips, he has more all-district selections expected to return next year than are graduating.

“We had a good senior class this year,” Phillips said. “Especially with all the injuries — most of them were to seniors — but they were a big part of our success and helped us build our program. I am proud of those guys.”

LUBBOCK — The Steers (4-8) kept up with Lubbock Monterey on Tuesday, but in the fourth period, it was the Plainsmen who were able to make the shots to put away the game, handing Big Spring a 61-53 loss.

“It was a tight game going into the fourth quarter,” BSHS Head Coach Cliff Thompson said.

“They made plays at the end. Overall, the flow of the game was good. We played well defensively — we never let it get out of hand — and offensively, we got to the free-throw line a lot.”
