Cubs football picked for district title

By Brett Voss

Thanks to publications like Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine and The Old Coach’s Friday Night Football Texas, high school football for fans in the Lone Star state begins about a month before a single players steps onto the field for the first day of conditioning Aug. 1. And if these two publications can serve as an indication, Bosque County will have plenty to look forward to and cheer about during the 2016 Texas high school football season. When the UIL released the realignments for the 2016-18 school years in February, both Clifton and Valley Mills were moved to new districts with an entirely new slate of opponents, while Meridian stayed put with a new counterpart addded to the mix.

County kicks off Bosque 7-on-7 football

By Brett Voss

It may only be 7-on-7 summer football, but the three Bosque County 11-man high school football teams started a league of their own last Thursday. And once the dust settled on the blistering hot field at Jacket Stadium in Meridian, it became clear old rivalries had been renewed. With the Clifton Cubs playing in Class 3A, Division II, the Valley Mills Eagles battling in Class 2A, Division I, and the Meridian Yellowjackets competing in Class 2A, Division II, the three Bosque County schools have not crossed paths on the football often in recent years. But after all three squads posted one win and one loss in the threegame round-robin format, the battle for Bosque County supremacy was on.

THE ULTIMATE TEST

Phil Mickelson’s long-time caddie is already sounding the alarm for the field that will descend on Oakmont Country Club this week for the U.S. Open. “Hard. Hard. Hard. Did I mention that Oakmont might be by leaps and bounds the hardest course I have ever seen?” said Jim “Bones” Mackay of the par-70, 7,219-yard venue nestled in the Pittsburgh suburbs. “All of us will head there wondering if the set-up is a little ‘softer’ than in the past, or will it be the J.J. Watt of golf courses.”

By Bartee Haile

Clifton High School graduate Bethany Terral was named academic all-state team by the Texas Girls Coaches Association for track and field and will be recognized by the CISD school board at the monthly board meeting on June 20. “Use your God-given talents to the best of your abilities,” said Terral, paraphrasing Steve Prefontaine, an American middle and long-distance runner who competed in the 1972 Olympics. “To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice your God-given gifts.”
