The Turnaround – Do or Die

Lubbock High School football helmetToday we travel to Lake View. This is not your ordinary travel day or game for the Westerners. This is it. It is do or die.

We have lost 12 starters to injury this year. We have juggled rosters. We have moved people up. We have battled. We have gotten better each week, on every level. We have built the program. The Freshmen won again last night, thus clinching their second straight winning season. That is huge for us. My first year here we were a combined 1-39 on every level. The feeder programs are now in place and you can see it. The JV team has lost almost half of their guys to the Varsity roster and have just kept plugging away. I am proud of those guys. Why am I saying all this? Because there has been a lot that has gone right this year. The program is being built. Continue Reading →

Recap: Cedar Hill (TX) beats #5 DeSoto (TX)

by Jeff Fisher

Cedar Hill High School Longhorn footballIt’s hard to believe that defense made a difference in Thursday night’s 65-42 Cedar Hill over #5 DeSoto in the Battle of the Beltway in southwest Texas, but it did.

DeSoto led the Longhorns 35-28 after the half, but Cedar Hill’s defense stiffened in the second half, only allowing one Eagle touchdown as the Longhorns moved to 4-0 in District 8-6A.  Running back Aca’cedric Ware gave Cedar Hill the lead for good in the third quarter when he scored on a touchdown run that gave the Longhorns a 45-42 lead.

The Cedar Hill offense was led by Ware who rushed for 145 yards on 26 carries and four touchdowns.  DaMarkus Lodge totaled 235 receiving yards with three touchdowns.

The Longhorn victory gave Cedar Hill its first victory over DeSoto since 2009. The two teams have split the last eight meetings with each winning four times.

Hazing allegations end Pennsylvania high school football season

FOX 29 News Philadelphia | WTXF-TV
by Jeff Fisher

Alright, these stories are getting old and with each revelation, more disgusting.

Thursday, another high-profile football program had its 2014 season come to a close at the hands of school administrators in light of hazing allegations.  According to Philly.com, Central Bucks School District officials cancelled the remaining of the C.B West football season “after it said it learned that players had subjected rookies to “humiliating” hazing in a preseason initiation.”

As I stated in last week’s commentary about Sayreville High School in New Jersey, I refuse to write about the details and will continue that policy here. However, I do stand by my statement that the adults in-charge, need to be held accountable for what’s going on.  I also believe that the student-athletes that were involved – directly or indirectly – need to be held accountable for their actions.
