Yorktown out hustle Nordheim for win, 49-48

By Tim O’Malley
Yorktown News-View

It was a game that had everyone involved. So much that the Yorktown Police Department was called in for assistance in the event a fight broke out.

The Nordheim Pirates played the Yorktown Wildcats in Yorktown. These two teams have already faced each other three times this year with Nordheim winning. With Yorktown at home court the Wildcats wanted to ensure in a different out come.

Yorktown coach Lane Shands said, “We set up differently in the beginning by taking Nordheim’s Eli Julian out of the game. We traded our best defender for their best offender. We played 4 and 4.”

Nordheim coach Carlton Williams said, “You can’t play basketball depending on one person. If they want to go box in one, I’ll play 4 on 4. I’ll take my chances with my four against their four.”

The first half Nordheim trailed Yorktown 27-26 and the two teams never let up. At the end of the third quarter Yorktown slipped behind 36-37.

Lady Gobblers drop district-opener to Navarro Panthers

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Turnovers and missed free throws were costly for the Lady Gobblers in their district-opener against Navarro on Tuesday night, Dec. 15. The Lady Panthers capitalized on a 13-2 second quarter run and held on for a 40-31 win.
 
“I was proud of the kids,” coach Amy Crain said. “We did dig a hole. We started slow, got into some foul trouble. Our shots wouldn’t fall. Those things were a lot to overcome.”
 
Navarro jumped out to an 8-0 lead in the first quarter before Cuero scored their first points. Navarro controlled the pace of play early with their clean ball movement and scoring to set up their full court press.
 
The second quarter started with a little more energy from the Lady Gobblers, but Navarro still went on a run which included back-to-back three pointers. At the half, the Lady Panthers led, 22-6.

Gobblers shift from football field to basketball court with new team

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Following an impressive run to the state semifinals for the Gobbler football team, some players will now trade in their cleats for basketball shoes, as basketball season is officially underway for the guys at Cuero High School. Coach Clint Coles will lead an entirely new team in his third year at the helm of the program.
 
Last season, Cuero set several team records including a six game winning steak to start district and 10 overall in district competition, as the Gobblers advanced to the bi-district round of playoffs. This season’s team will have a revamped varsity lineup from top to bottom with many players from last year’s team having graduated. Defensive specialist Zech Hopkins may return to the team during the district campaign in the spring, and he would be the only potential returner.

On the defensive side, seniors Mike Hopkins (lineman) and Zech Hopkins (linebacker) earned honorable mention honors. Mike and Zech helped anchor a defense which only allowed 233 yards per game on average throughout the season, 118 rushing and 115 passing.
 
During Cuero’s playoff run to the state semifinals, the defense allowed 189 yards per game, less than 77 on the ground.

Cody Baker was officially invited to participate in the Bret Cooper Football Junior Academic All American Bowl in Dallas on Jan. 2, 2016. This honor is distinctive because no other youth game in the country has an academic and character-related requirement for an All-American selection. Cody was one of 60 selected to the bowl with over 30,000 players viewed for this prestigious position in the selection process.
 
Each Junior All-American bowl will be in an East vs. West format with ex-NFL players as head coaches.
 
Cody, aka “Bean,” started playing football with Cuero Cyfl at six years old. He is now 11 years old and currently playing in the Tyfa League with the Yoakum Outlawz. His positions are fullback and linebacker. Cody is looking froward to starting seventh grade football as a Gobbler next year.
