Well, the time is here. When you read this, football and volleyball practices will start Monday morning. It is exciting to have some sports ongoing.
The Eagles are predicted to be one of the top football teams in the state in Class 2A-Division II. Coaches are challenged to bring forth a team that meets the preseason predictions. Injuries, move ins, and move outs can dramatically alter the team structure in smaller schools.
I wonder if Giddings will have their field ready for the first scrimmage. It has been fun to watch the field development in the last month. Last week there was a dramatic change since the last time I viewed the construction.
The Texas Rangers are still on a roll. They took on their closest challengers, the Anaheim Angels, and won three of four to increase their division lead. Meanwhile the Astros lost three of four to Cincinnati.
I wonder where Boise State’s Chris Peterson will coach next. His career record of 49-4 tops any coach in history for four years. Boise is ranked #3 in preseason rankings because of 20 of 22 starters returning from a 14-0 team.
