Sports Thoughts

by Mike Organ

After last week I had given up on the Cowboys, because they were not making a change and they were still losing. The next day, they made a change and it worked for them. I hope it lasts for a while like the change A&M made.

The Aggies are really energized after just changing quarterbacks. Tannehill has won four in a row and the entire Aggie nation is abuzz. They will be going to a bowl — that really means something this year.

Texas, on the other hand, is still trying to win with the same players without making a change at any position. The current group has proven they can not win, so how about giving some of those other athletes a try?

The current Texas team is costing UT a load of money. They are offering tickets that normally cost $50 for $25. I wonder how much is lost in UT paraphernalia sales to the general public because of their performance.

Someone dropped off a note last weekend. They left the scores from the 1963 Eagle football schedule. It seems 1963 Eagle team allowed only 36 points the entire season. They shut out four opponents including a 0-0 tie with Hutto. They lost 7-6 and 6-0 failing to win district. I assume the anonymous person wanted me to know there were some outstanding defenses in Lexington’s history.

Exes at the next level: McMurry ended their season with a winning 6-4 record. Jimmy Terrell was the third leading tackler on the team. He finished with 32 solo tackles, 27 assisted tackles, one sack, and one interception.

Amanda Dowdy had a good game against Texas for the Lady Raiders. Dowdy had 10 kills, nine digs, and one block assist. Southeastern Oklahoma State ended their season at 3-7. Ronnie Willrich saw limited duty for the Savage Storm making six tackles in five games.
