COWBOYS HANG ON FOR A WILD RIDE

In front of a rowdy home crowd, the Cowboys returned home this week to earn a hard fought victory over the Langston Lions, 30-29.  For all of you fans that assume and extra point is automatic, you should have seen this game.  Jesse Ramos ran the opening kickoff back for a touchdown but then the extra point attempt was blocked and the Lions took it the distance of the field for 2 points.  If that wasn't enough extra point excitement, when Langston scored its final touchdown, the hold was muffed and the extra point was blocked which turned out to be the difference in the game.  It took two great defensive stops to seal the win, but the Cowboys did it in style.  It was a great win.  Next up is an old foe, the Trinity Tigers from San Antonio.  That game will be this Saturday, October 4th and kickoff is again 1:00 at Shelton Stadium on the HSU campus.  Be sure to come early and wear your purple and gold and be ready to cheer the team on.   

The Developmental Squad also had a great victory Monday night when they defeated El Paso Prep Academy 7-0 at Shelton Stadium.  El Paso Prep is a good team with lots of great athletes so this was a great victory for our Devo Squad.  Next week is a road game against Austin College in Glen Rose Texas.  The game will be at the Glen Rose High School Stadium which is off Hwy 67 on the southwest side of town and kickoff will be at 7:00.  Please come out and support our young Cowboys.

Spirit Items.

As we said up above, come early and wear your purple and gold and be ready to cheer the team on.  Just in case you don't have something purple to wear, come by the Parents Group table under the west stands at the stadium and pick up a t-shirt or a hat.  The t-shirts have the senior them, We Ride...We Win on them and if you watch the team chant this before the game, it is pretty chilling to watch.  So please stop by, we only have a couple of more weeks to sell.   

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

Cowboy Up
