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.

Father vs. Son clash ends with Coahoma win

November 22, 2011

On a misty, foggy night, one of Coahoma's own returned to Bulldog Gym for a bitter-sweet reunion. It was father vs. son as the O'Donnell Eagles came to town, coached by Blake Nichols, son of Coahoma's Coach Kim Nichols.

It was the first time the two men have met as coaches and this time, the Dad got the better of Son, as Coahoma defeated O'Donnell 64-50, spurred on by 34-point night by Tanner Ruiz. The Coahoma junior hit four 3-pointers to lead the Bulldogs to their second win of the young season.
Before the game, Blake Nichols talked about playing his father:
