Welcome to the Garden - KBST Sports HS Football Team of the Day


When the KBST Sports team arrived on the campus at Garden City High School, one of the first noticeable features was the incredible display of tropies you could see through the Gym windows...from a distance. Making the corner and pulling up to the field gives one even more sense of pride as there are statues, and signs that show-off the many accomplishments of the program, I mean, why shouldn't it be known where you have arrived; The Garden, in Garden City, Texas. 
 
It tooks us a few minutes to locate Coach Matthew Odom and the Bearkats due to the fact that there was some construction going on; some much welcomed construction of the brand new, beautiful football stadium. We found our way to the entrance of the fieldhouse and coaches office by located the dune buggie and golf carts in the parking lot (Hey its a small town, how much fun would THAT be?) We were able to sit down with Coach Odom and the rest of the Bearkat coaching staff. We spoke with Senior Defensive End Aaron Enriquez who is looking forward to his final year as a Bearkat, but sad that it's almost the end. 
 
Coach Odom is hoping to carry on some of the successes of last season; going 10-2 Overall, Undefeated in district play and a couple rounds deep in the playoffs. At the same time, Odom understands that it is a new team and a new year, and this team has goals and expectations of their own, which seem to be oddly similar to the 2009 and 2010 teams who just happened to win BACK to BACK state titles. Coach Odom spoke of the speed of the Bearkat offense and how they plan to use a faster pace than in years past. We also spoke about the incredible new stadium the Bearkats get to play their first regular season game on September 5th against the Eden Bulldogs. 
 
It's not a long drive to see some top quality six-man football, at an amazing field. Take a Friday night on down to Glasscock County, and see what all the buzz is about. Garden City football could very well now compete for the title of "The Greatest Show on Turf."
 
Special thanks to coach Odom, his staff, and the entire Bearkat football team for letting the KBST Sports crew hang out. The Best of luck to you this season. #BearkatNation

STERLING CITY EAGLES - KBST Sports H.S. Football Team of the Day


After a tough 4-8 season last year, the Eagles are looking to improve and make a much bigger splash in the play-offs this season. The Eagles had some big games last season, including beating district opponents Veribest 43-12 and Paint Rock 60-14 to get into the playoffs, only to suffer a 54-0 loss to rivals Garden City. One could feel the passion on the field during every snap of the ball during practice this season. 
 
First arriving at Eagles Stadium in Sterling City, Texas is pretty amazing. The stadium, facilities, and equipment, look like something you may see at a much larger 5A or even 6A high school. We sat back and observed the team for several minutes; freshman through seniors who make up two teams, a Varsity and Junior Varsity, about thirty athletes total (about half of the entire high school population). The team had been split up into groups, performing various drills. 
 
Six-man football requires one to be in great shape. It is a fast sport where points are scored often and fast. The term, "You play like you practice," was in full effect during the practice we attended. The players were never standing in one place and Coach Thompson and his staff run an organized practice that shows off the quickness and determination in the Eagles players. 
 
After practice, KBST Sports spoke with Coach Casey Thomspson. We found out that he grew up playing six man football which allows him to know the sport thoroughly. After high school, Thomspon played college football, which was his first experience with eleven man football. Coach Thompson then went on the begin his coaching career, which began in East Texas at Groveton High School, a 2A school. Thompson then moved up to 3A Kaufman High School, were he coached for 3 years. Coach Thompson then spent 8 years at the powerhouse 5A Arlington Martin. He has two seasons under his belt in Sterling City. When asked what he can bring to Sterling City from those larger schools, Coach Thompson replied, "Football is football, but being a coordinator at a big school helped me with delegating things, and being ultra-organized in practice. The tempo that we used in those other programs, i want to apply it to my program here...strength conditioning, building athletes." This was very obvious to see just by looking around at the equipment and facilities that Thompson has brought to Sterling City, including the amazing weight room newly installed which Coach Thompson accredits much of their success to. 
 
The Eagles kick off the 2014 regular season at home against long-time rivals Blackwell August 29th, at 7:30. Take the 45 minute drive down south and check out a six man game if you haven't already before. It is extremely exciting, and you will not be disappointed in the incredible facilities. 
 
One may think that in a smaller town, such as Sterling City, it may be hard to come across the type of talent found in a big city. After hanging out with the Eagles, size has nothing to do with it...heart and passion trump talent any day of the week. 
 
 
Special Thanks to Coach Casey Thomspson, his staff, and the entire Sterling City Ealges Football team for allowing me to spend some time with them. Good luck this season! 
 

Can You Smell the Football?


Football was the aroma all day Friday and throughout the weekend for many area high school athletes. 
 
KBST Sports was able to attend many scrimmages and came back with excellent reports. The Pre-Season was under-way early Friday morning as the Sands Mustangs and Westbrook Wildcats took the field against each other. Westbrook is coming off a tough 4-6 season, 0-3 in district; but Coach Randal Petty is looking forward to a much better season this year. Coach Petty is looking to suit up 12 players this season and says he, “Has enough speed and quickness to run the spread and hurry-up” and feels that his defense is, “Solid.” Coach Steve Keith and the Sands Mustangs are looking to improve after narrowly missing the playoffs last season, which is going to be fun to watch because the Mustangs averaged over sixty points per game in the 2013-14 season. 
 
Coahoma, Texas was the next stop on the map for the K-Best Sports Team. We found the feisty Bulldogs in action against the Jim Ned Indians. After a rebuilding year, Coach Trey Gardner and the Bulldogs look to use their, “ground and pound, between the tackles,” type offense, and solid defense to get them a district championship. Many of the offensive players in the back field scored on long break out runs during the scrimmage, while the defense held “Bulldog Strong”. If you were keeping score, you’d notice the Bulldogs were on top a lot to a little. 
 
We had our road crew in Cisco to check out the Big Spring Steers first pre-season action against the Burkburnett Bulldogs. The Steers are coming off a record-breaking season, as they averaged over forty-five points per game, with a 9-4 record, 3-2 in district play; and made it several rounds into the playoffs before the heart-breaking loss to Stephenville. The Steers looked electrified and played with tons of speed and quickness. The defense held the Bulldogs to a scoreless scrimmage and not many yards to top things off. The Steers Offense found the end-zone on four different occasions and Coach Phillip Ritchey and the Steer Nation are looking for an exciting season! The Steers are in Lubbock to scrimmage 
Estacado this Friday at 7 P.M. 
 
Forsan, Texas was were the party was at Friday night as the Community Pep-Rally had the stands packed with fans, band members, and tons of excitement! After a close loss in the first round of the playoffs last season, Coach Jason Phillips was excited to see passion as the players stepped on to the field. With their style of speed and quick scoring, the defense has stepped up their game as well as they shut out the Grape Creek Eagles in the live quarter that was played, the Buffaloes scored twice. Forsan travels to Stanton for a three way scrimmage with Stanton and Big Lake this Thursday. 
 
Stanton was the final stop of the first weekend of Texas High School Football as the Red Buffaloes had to wait until Saturday morning to get on the gridiron. Stanton is coming off a 6-5 record, 2-3 in district; made the playoffs last season, but drew the state champion Cisco Loboes in the first round. The Buffaloes took on Fort Stockton Saturday, and Coach Peterson said he likes taking on larger teams in pre-season play because size is something the Buffs, “can’t duplicate in practice.” Peterson appreciated the class of the Panthers and that his young players were able to learn a lot. Stanton hosts Forsan and Big Lake Thursday.

The US Hang Gliding Nationals Returns to Big Spring


The US Hang Gliding Nationals will return to Big Spring this Sunday, August 3rd through Saturday, August 9th.

According to event coordinator Belinda Boulter, The event has more than 60 competitors signed up including the defending National Champion, Zac Majors. The pilots will begin arriving in Big Spring by the weeks end.
 

The event will consist of 3 classes: Flex Wing, Sport, and Rigid Wing.
 

This year’s event will feature an exciting new feature: Live Tracking! This website will allow anyone to follow the racing while it is happening, on their computers, smart phones and tablets. The pilots will set up their cell phones to transmit their locations and the website will show where everyone is on one map. Because cell coverage can be spotty in West Texas, Boulter says this feature should be considered experimental.

The events will launch most days around 1pm and people will start on the course around 2:15 or 2:30pm depending on the day and length of task.

 

The official competition website is located at this site. While it is oriented toward the pilots, fans can find the most up-to-date pilot list and the schedule for the first day.

Tandem Flights will also be available this year. For morning information contact Russell Brown at 352-546-8616.
