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.

Young, Adams send Steers past Lions; Lady Steers fall, but still in hunt for playoff spot

February 8, 2011

Big Spring boys
Brownwood sent the wrong player to the line with 3.2 seconds left.
The Lions were clinging to a 49-48 lead when Luke Adams was fouled and sent to the charity stripe and at that point, it was just a matter of playing defense for three more seconds.

“I knew they were going in,” Adams said of the late free throws. “Without my teammates, it wouldn’t have been possible.”

Those two free throws did go in as Big Spring edged the Lions for a thrilling 50-49 win and Adams is right. The Steers wouldn’t have been in position to win if it weren’t for Dayvion Young’s late heroics.
