Breaking down the schedule — Glen Rose

July 26, 2013

In our last installment, we broke down the schedule of the Malvern Leopards in the 4A Classification.

Today, we’re going to step down one class and look at the Beavers of Glen Rose, a team that made it to the 3A state championship game. They seemingly had the game won, but Harding Academy set up a brilliant set of plays in the last half-minute to score a touchdown and win the game.

Breaking down the schedule — Malvern Leopards

July 25, 2013

With a little more than a month to go before the first game of the 2013 football season, football fever is beginning to take hold across the county.

Here at the Malvern Daily Record, we will have a football preview coming out soon, but I’d like to give you a little sneak peak of the upcoming season by breaking down the schedules of all six teams in our coverage area.

Today, we are going to take a look at the schedule of the Malvern Leopards, of the 7-4A Conference.

MLB scandals ruining all of the progress

July 24, 2013

As I read more and more about the most recent scandal involving Biogenesis and Major League Baseball, a simple saying comes to mind — “Now this is why we can’t have nice things.”

Scandals and baseball are nothing new. In fact, the most underhanded scandal in baseball history happened almost 100 years ago with the Black Sox.

When you factor in the Pete Rose gambling problem and the steroid era of the late 1990s through now, it’s hard to believe we can still get worked up over misdeeds performed by professional baseball players.

But here we are, embroiled in yet another scandal.

NCAA lawsuit could have long-lasting effects

July 23, 2013

For years I have been beating the drum saying that college athletes should receive some sort of compensations for their work (not to mention the obscene amount of money they help bring to their university).

The comeback to that argument is the old stand-by of “but they get a free education!” And that would be a valid retort, if not for the fact that most universities lose nothing by giving out a scholarship and often give away truckloads per year.

We welcome any and all sports-related pictures

July 19, 2013

One of the many things I love about my job is how involved the community is when it comes to sports.

Whenever there is an event out of town that I cannot make it to, someone usually supplies a picture from the event so the kids can get the recognition they deserve.

Soon we will be starting a new weekly segment that consists solely of submitted photographs.

This is where you get to shine.

Despite the heat, football camps are loads of fun

July 18, 2013

When the oppressive heat of summer hits, the last thing you want to do is be out in the weather exerting yourself.

But with football camps, I see it from another perspective. After being deprived of the sport for six months, I will take any football I can get.

I feel for the players out on the field, I really do. I couldn’t imagine putting on all the gear they have to wear as they run in full-speed contact drills.

Some sports deserve more recognition

July 17, 2013

Over the last two weeks, I have been writing a series of articles explaining sports to those who may be new to them.

So far I have covered the biggest sports in America.

In upcoming editions, I will cover some of the more obscure sports, some of which are rather deserving of a closer look.

There’s no real reason for professional all-star games

July 16, 2013

Tonight, the Major League Baseball All-Star Game will be played and I am having a real hard time caring about it.

For one, why is the game played in the middle of the season? That doesn’t give you an accurate representation of who the best players in the league are for the current season.

Also, why play the game at all?

James King 7-on-7 was a breath of fresh air

July 12, 2013

For the vast majority of Wednesday afternoon, I was in a state of euphoria.

The first, in what I and everyone else hopes will be an annual event) James King Memorial 7-on-7 football tournament was held at Malvern High School’s Claude Mann Stadium.

Despite the oppressive heat, which was a bit overbearing even for this Southern boy, the event was a resounding success.

Losses are never fun, but some are worse than others

July 11, 2013

A discussion got started recently here in the Malvern Daily Record office about the success of past football teams like the 2011 Malvern Leopards and the 2012 Glen Rose Beavers.

Both teams ran roughshod over most of their opponents during the regular season and earned a spot in War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock for the state championship game in their respective classifications.

The two teams also had something else in common, and that is they both failed to win the state championship. The big difference is how the two teams lost.
