Sports Thoughts

by Mike Organ

Lexington took it easy on the Johnson City Eagles Friday, despite the 59-0 score. Coach Holcomb gave a lot of young players some playing time. Some JV players got some PT since grades and injuries depleted the LBJ player numbers.

By the time you read this the Lady Eagle volleyball players will have earned a spot in the state playoffs. They are just one win away from this happening.

The legend of ‘Johnny football” is growing by leaps and bounds. Aggie QB Manziel broke his own record of two weeks for total offense against Louisiana Tech in the Ags 59-57 win. Don’t you know Coach Mack would like to have him playing defensive back!!!!!

Speaking of the Horns, they may not win another game this season. Baylor scored 63 vs. West Virginia. TCU beat Baylor, Kansas State, Texas Tech, and Iowa State are no sure wins. They are 1-2 with only one more almost sure thing in Kansas.

Can you name the last time Coach Mack and his staff out coached the opposition?

The Cowboys are 2-3 with a long way to go to get to the top of their division. Players, like Dez Bryant, don’t seem to make the plays when it counts.
