Sports Thoughts

by Mike Organ

Lexington is state ranked in 2A football. We are ranked the highest of all the Division II schools.

My criticism of the Longhorns was on the money last week. Mack said in his press conference, “The kids play like they are coached.” He is taking the blame for the players not performing up to expectations. That is great to keep the media finger pointing off the players. I am glad he did not offer any excuses.

Giddings may have some trouble coming off their layoff. The Buffs will have not played a game in three weeks when they take on LaGrange next week. They may lose their competitive edge with the long time off.

Lexington, Thorndale and Rogers are undefeated for the season. Rogers and Thorndale play this week so the number will be down to two for sure.

The Cowboys saved face and a bunch of jobs with the inspired victory over Houston. They need to play like that each week, if they are to make the playoffs.

Memory Lane: Lexington was to play Bartlett in 1964. Players mentioned in the article were: Tommy Jackson, Johnny Turner, Barry Parker, Martin Schubert, and Don Brown. All players mentioned were all-district the previous year.

McMurray’s Junior quarterback Jake Mullin and junior strong safety Jimmy Terrell were named to Thursday’s D3football.com National Team of the Week. Terrell recorded seven tackles (five solo), had 3.5 tackles for a loss, a sack and a forced fumble to help lead McMurry’s defensive effort and earned him the national honor.
