The role of the band in sports

October 29, 2014

A band can be one of the most important aspects in home field advantage for a football team — when it is done right.
As anyone who has attended a big-time game can attest to, the band is crucial for keeping the spirits of the home crowd up during the slower moments of the game, such as time outs and quarter breaks (not to mention the long halftimes).
In my years covering sports, I have seen all sorts of bands, at both football and basketball games. I’ve seen them perform well, and I’ve seen some bands that left me wondering why they were even there.

Preseason wrestling tournament at Glen Rose

October 29, 2014

The coaches will meet at 8:45 a.m. and the wrestling will begin at 9 a.m. and will follow a tournament format: highest score after three takedown attempts (one point for a takedown and three points for a throw).

Weekend was full of surprising games

October 7, 2014

Last Friday, I penned a column talking about how big of a weekend we were looking at in the world of sports.
Now that it is all in the books, I have to say, it even exceeded my expectations.
It all started on Friday night with the local high school games.
I was a bit surprised to see the Malvern Leopards fall on the road to Mena in the manner in which they did, but that shock was dwarfed by a couple of other games.
I’d have to say the biggest surprise on Friday wasn’t the fact that Poyen beat Magnet Cove, but how dominating the Indians were in that win.
