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.

Steers recognized by District 4-3A

December 4, 2012

The only thing better than heading a team full of All-District athletes is knowing most of them will be back next season

Several Big Spring football players who received District 4-3A honors are underclassmen expected to return to action. That is a good sign for Steer football, according to Head Coach Phillip Ritchey.

“We have quite a few juniors recognized by the district coaches,” Ritchey said. “More so than any other class. That's certainly a good thing for next year.”

Big Spring
SEMINOLE — The Lady Steers (3-3) fell short on the road Tuesday against the Seminole Lady Indians, losing 30-24 despite a strong defensive showing.

BSHS Head Coach Mike Warren is focused on executing offensively before district play begins.

“We played really well on defense,” Warren said. “We could not get going offensively. (Seinole) ran zone on us and we couldn't hit our outside shots.”

Much of the reason for the Lady Steers' opponents using a zone defense attack is due to the scoring threat of Yaneira Tuitt.

November 21, 2012

The 2012 Lady Steers volleyball team had a successful year.

Several Lady Steers were recognized this week with District 4-3A honors.

Senior Carson Reibe was named Defensive Specialist of the Year.

Erin Pollard claimed the Newcomer of the Year award.

Big Spring hoops teams win at home

November 21, 2012

Both Big Spring varsity basketball squads won last night at home.

The Lady Steers defeated Andrews 49-31 to improve to 3-2.

Yaneira Tuitt led BSHS with 18 points and five rebounds. Dyrshae Vanderbilt and sophomore Julianna Rodriguez each accounted for eight points as the the Lady Steers got back on the right side of the win column after back-to-back losses against Odessa High and Lamesa.

“It was a good non-district game,” Head Coach Mike Warren said. “It was good to get a win after losing the last two games.”

Containing Tuitt has been a priority for opposing teams.

Forsan falls to Quanah 41-6

November 17, 2012

CLYDE — Brendan Roman, senior running back for Forsan picked up a Quanah fumble at the one-yard line and ran it in for a 99-yard touchdown early in the first quarter during the Buffaloes (6-5) bi-district outing against the 8-3 Indians on Friday.

Unfortunately for the Buffs, a holding penalty caused the score to be recalled.

That would set the tone of Forsan's season-ending, 41-6 loss. Five interceptions and a lost fumble coupled with costly penalties proved insurmountable for Head Coach Jason Phillips' squad.

Grady avenges loss to Ropes in playoff opener

November 17, 2012

ACKERLY — Grady (8-3) opened its season with back-to-back losses, including a narrow, 56-48 defeat at the hands of the Ropes Eagles (7-4) in the Wildcats first game of the year.

After winning six of its last seven regular season games, Grady — under the tutelage of first year Head Coach Chris Kuykendal — met Ropes once again Friday in the first round of postseason action.

Grady trailed 16-0 early in the affair, but rallied back to take a 44-22 heading into the second half.

November 17, 2012

STERLING CITY — The Garden City Bearkats posted a 3-7 record during the regular season, but found a way into the playoffs.

Forsan advances to playoffs with win over Winters

November 10, 2012

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.
Prior to Friday's bout, Phillips toldsaid he wanted to restore the running game and put more points on the board than he his squad has in the previous weeks.

Phillips adjustments worked, as the Buffaloes shutout the Blizzards 24-0, relying mostly on the ground game to advance to bi-district where they will face the 7-3 Quanah Indians.
