Cowboys Fight Hard But Come Up Short

Under near perfect weather Saturday afternoon, the Cowboys came up short in their home opener against the Texas Lutheran Bulldogs.  The final score was 37-14 but it was a closer game than the score indicated.  The Cowboys scored at the start of the fourth quarter to pull within 7 of the Bulldogs but Texas Lutheran was able to score the final 16 points due in large part to Cowboy mistakes.  So unfortunately, the Cowboys played hard but they lost where it counts the most, on the scoreboard. 

But remember, "Cowboys Find a Way" and this Saturday September 20th, the Cowboys travel to Plainview Texas for a 2:00 PM tilt against the Wayland Baptist Pioneers.  There will be a large contingent of Pioneers at the game so we need the Cowboy faithful to turn out en masse to support the team.   

The Developmental Squad made their Shelton Stadium debut Monday night with an 18-7 victory over the Wayland Baptist Pioneers.  Hopefully the results are an omen for this weekend.  There was a great crowd on hand for the game and we as fans need to keep up this pace because our younger players need our support as well.  Next Monday, September 22nd, the Developmental Squad will travel to Belton Texas to take on our arch nemesis, the Mary Hardin Baylor Crusaders.  The game will be at Crusader Stadium on the UMHB campus and kickoff will be at 6:00 PM.  This is another game in the Central Texas area so for the fans on the eastern side of the state, this is another easy travel game so please make plans to attend.

Spirit Items

We still have lots of spirit items for sale so look for the Parents Group table under the stands.  Please come by a purchase a souvenir to take with you into the stands before the next Cowboy victory. 

 If anyone would like a replica jersey this year, our last order day will be Saturday September 27th at the Langston game.  It takes time to get the jerseys ordered because they are a custom item and we would like to get them before homecoming.  So if you are interested in a replica jersey, please stop by our table to place an order at the Langston game.  
 

Mobile App

If you go to the Athletics tab on the Football webpage you will see "Mobile App" on the drop down menu.  This is a great way to keep track of HSU athletics on your smart phone or tablet.  You can watch video of the varsity games on your cell phone.  The app works great and is something every fan should have.

Once again, I want to thank everyone again for all their support.  This is going to be a great season for the Cowboys so lets get out to the stadium early, wear year Purple and Gold and cheer loudly. 
 

Cowboy Up,

Jeff Crozier
