Football

 

AND NOW THERE ARE TWO

Last Saturday in front of a homecoming crowd in Brownwood Texas, the Cowboys defeated the Howard Payne Yellow Jackets 51-20.  The Cowboys are currently 5-1 on the season and 2-0 in American Southwest Conference play.  That sets up a contest this week for first place in the conference against the Mary Hardin Baylor Crusaders.  This will be an extremely tough game for the Cowboys as The Cru is currently the No. 2 team in the nation and they have outscored their opponents by an average of 40 points.  The offense, defense and special teams will really have to step up this week.  The parents can help by turning out and supporting our team.  Once again, the Cowboys have been selected as a homecoming opponent so there will be a large crowd cheering on our opponent so we need plenty of loud fans in our stands.  Kickoff is scheduled for 1:00 in the newly opened Crusader Stadium on the UMHB campus  Please plan on attending Saturday to cheer our boys to victory. 
The Developmental Squad had an interesting Monday.  They got to travel to Plainview Texas to find out that their game had been canceled because there was an escaped prisoner on the loose and the city was on lock down.  Coach Burleson hopes the game can be rescheduled but he is not sure so please stay tuned for updates.  There will be another Developmental Squad game however next Monday night November 3rd against cross town and long time rival the McMurry War Hawks.  McMurry returns to the American Southwest Conference next year so this will be a preview of games in upcoming years.  The game will be at Shelton Stadium next Monday night and kickoff will be at 6:00 PM.

Mary Hardin Baylor Tailgate

The Parents Group will be setting up a tailgate this weekend at the Mary Hardin Baylor game in Belton.  If you are interested in participating, all we ask is that you bring some kind of dish or desert to share with the group.  You can bring sandwiches, breakfast tacos, chips and dips or cakes and cookies.  We will be setting up between10:30 and 11:00 in the parking lot at the corner of 9th and College Avenue on the UMHB campus.  Look for our HSU Tailgate banner and stop by and say hello.

This is a huge week for the program.  We need everyone to show up and show their Purple Pride. 

Go Cowboys,

Jeff Crozier
