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 edge Chiefs 22-14, improve to 3-0

September 15, 2012

SAN ANGELO — It wasn't pretty, but the Steers are now 3-0.

San Angelo Lake View gave Big Spring all it could handle and the Steers shot themselves in the foot several times during their 22-14 win over the Chiefs at San Angelo Stadium on Friday.

Steers stomp Mustangs

September 10, 2012

Two down, eight to go — that is the official count after Big Spring Head Football Coach Phillip Ritchey's bold, preseason prediction of taking the Steers from an 0-10 team to a 10-0 team in just one season.

Last week, Big Spring throttled Fort Stockton 49-0 in the season opener. The comeback continued on the new turf recently laid at Memorial Stadium on Friday as Big Spring upset Midland Christian — reigning TAPPS 4A state champions — 17-12.

Again, Ritchey was surprised at the fortitude displayed by his team.

Steers rout Panthers 49-0

September 1, 2012

FORT STOCKTON — The Big Spring Steers stunned a lot of people Friday with a 49-0 shellacking of the Fort Stockton Panthers. The big victory snapped a 12-game losing streak for BSHS and doubtless instilled confidence in Head Coach Phillip Ritchey and his squad.

Tobyn Tannehill, the sophomore sibling of the Miami Dolphins' quarterback Ryan Tannehill, went 11-of-14 passing and racked up 239 yards as well as rushed for 36 yards in his first varsity start.

The first seven Steer possessions were all driven down the field for touchdowns — all with Tannehill at the helm.

Forsan edges Coahoma 30-27 in season opener

August 31, 2012

MIDLAND — Howard County rivals Forsan and Coahoma met Thursday at the ASCO Football Madness opener at Grande Communications Stadium, in what was the first football game played in the state for the 2012 season.

The Buffaloes and Bulldogs battled through early afternoon heat, cramps and dehydration issues, and a scoreboard that failed during the first quarter, leaving both teams coaches to manage the time without an official time clock.

When the smoke cleared, Forsan was the victor, narrowly defeating Coahoma — who won least year's meeting by a point — 30-27.

Lady Steers take two, improve record to 6-4

August 22, 2012

The Lady Steers improved their volleyball record to 6-4 Tuesday after back-to-back wins over Lubbock High and Andrews.

With a tough, non-district schedule, BSHS Head Coach Lynn Osborne said in an earlier interview that her team “May rack up quite a few losses,” before district action begins in Sept. The Lady Steers, however, have now won four straight matches.

Individual statistics from Tuesday's games are as follows:

Vs. Lubbock High — 15-25, 25-18, 25-23, 25-21

Coahoma football — to the playoffs 'and then some'

August 16, 2012

The Coahoma Bulldogs have a new attitude this year.

Now in his third year as head football coach, Trey Gardner is not just hoping for a third straight playoff appearance, he wants to move beyond bi-district — which is as far as his squads have gotten thus far.

“What we are building off of this year is what I call 'And then some'.,” Gardner said. “We want to win — win district, then keep playing.”

In 2010, the Bulldogs played, according to Gardner, “Like we were just happy to be there,”.

Coahoma fell to the Spearman Lynx.
