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.

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.

Steers top Indians 29-19

September 29, 2012

Memorial Stadium was awash in sheets of rain Friday as Big Spring hosted Seminole for its last predistrict bout.

The Steers allowed two late scores, but the Indians' rally wasn't enough as Big Spring — who recorded an 0-10 record last season — improved to 5-0 after a sloppy 29-19 victory.

The rain — which didn't let up throughout the entire evening — made the game a bit more interesting than BSHS Head Coach Phillip Ritchey may have wanted at times.

Steers trounce Mustangs 51-14 in front of homecoming crowd

September 22, 2012

The Steers kept the win streak alive for an enthusiastic homecoming crowd as Big Spring — led by sophomore quarterback Tobyn Tannehill — walked all over rival Andrews, defeating the Mustangs 51-14 andimproving to 4-0 on the season.

For the second straight week, the Steers' opponents drew first blood. Andrews quarterback Shane Dolgener threw a 50-yard touchdown pass to give the Mustangs a 6-0 lead on the first possession of the game when the point after was missed.

Buffs beat Indians, Coahoma loses in Denver City, Bearkats fall to Ira

September 22, 2012

TUSCOLA — This time, the Buffaloes hunted the Indians.

The undefeated Forsan Buffaloes traveled to meet the winless Jim Ned High School on Friday, but barely scraped by with a victory as the Buffs were forced to mount a 25-point comeback to defeat the Indians, who had jumped out to 21-0 lead by the end of the first half of play.

Forsan's Brendan Roman scored two running touchdowns and rushed for 117 yards and Trevor Burchett had a 37-yard scoring reception. Burchett also shared quarterbacking duties with Marcus Cervantes. Both passed for one touchdown apiece.

Big Spring —

The Steers’ redemption of last year’s 0-10 record is well underway.

Big Spring is now 3-0 as they head into Friday’s homecoming game against Andrews and senior linebacker Max Pappajohn has played a big part of the program’s success.

“He had the big hit of the game (against Lake View) defensively,” BSHS Head Coach Phillip Ritchey said. “He is all over the field making plays and being a leader.”

Pappajohn also plays tight end on the offensive side of the ball.

Coahoma —

Coahoma falls to C. City, Bearkats down rival Eagles

September 15, 2012

COAHOMA — In what shaped up to be a battle resulting in numerous injuries sustained by both sides, the Bulldogs fell to the Colorado City Wolves 20-6 in a gritty duel Friday at Bulldog Stadium.

“It was a very physical affair,” said Coahoma Head Coach Trey Gardner of the loss.

The Bulldogs' only score came in the second quarter on a T.J. White run to give Coahoma six points. The kick after was no good and the Bulldogs couldn't put together another scoring drive for the remainder of the game.

Forsan wins battle of Buffaloes at homecoming

September 15, 2012

FORSAN — In the battle of the Crossroads Buffaloes, Forsan reigned supreme. The win also marks the first 3-0 start by the Forsan Buffs since 1998.

Keying Forsan's 28-7 victory was a staunch defense and a running game which improved since last week's flat, 14-0 victory over Coleman.

“We ran the ball a lot more consistently this week,” Forsan Head Coach Jason Phillips said. “We started finding the holes and the offensive line was locking up well.”

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.
