    Hannah Cunliffe

    I am glad some folks are beginning to notice. White Lightning and I have been saying this for years on this board. I have been attending AAU/TAC youth track meets since the early 1980's and it has been this way since then.

    Johnny Manziel - 2011 QB

    Manziel's season came to an end against Lake Travis, the best football program in the state for the past 4 years. It was a shootout among the two best QBs in the state with Michael Brewer (Texas Tech recruit) getting the win. Talk about offense, check out the numbers of the two QBs: Johnny...

    Ryan Swope-WR Texas A&M

    Ryan set the Texas A&M single season reception record with 67 this season. Unfortunately, most of those were WR screens and slants, so the yards per catch wasn't that high. by: SteveB

    Johnny Manziel - 2011 QB

    The Texas High School playoffs are underway and Manziel is dominating so far with a big first round win. Next game is against three time defending state champs Lake Travis. There will be white speed all over the field for that one. Manziel's eye popping numbers for the year are: Passing...

    White Linebackers -- 2009

    Texas A&M's Michael Hodges was named the Nagurski Defensive Player of the Week after a 19 tackle and 2 sack performance against Oklahoma. The guy was all over the field. Not bad for the former walk-on LB. He is now on the Nagurski Award watch list. Hodges Named Nagurski National Defensive...

    Colin Jones - TCU Safety

    Colin Jones is the starting strong safety for the #3 ranked TCU Horned Frogs. He has been injured most of his college career, but he is having a breakout senior year. He is second on the team in tackles and had a pick 6 interception against UNLV. I wrote about Jones on this forum way back...

    Brandon Hardin-CB Oregon State

    I haven't watched much Oregon St football recently, but I was impressed with Hardin in the game tonight against Washington. The guy is huge for a CB. Here is his bio on the Oregon St website: 2010: For a cornerback, Brandon has exceptional size ... enters the year the projected starter at...

    Sam McGuffie

    Unfortunately, Rice has a problem at QB. Fanuzzi is the returning starter, but makes a lot of bad decisions. Taylor McHargue is a good runner, but stays injured. Taylor Cook has all of the tools to be a top flight QB, but hasn't been given a chance to develop. The QB turmoil has made the...

    Johnny Manziel - 2011 QB

    Johnny Manziel is a superb dual threat QB from Kerrville TX. Last year as a junior, he was the San Antonio Express News Player of the Year. As a junior, Manziel accounted for 54 TDs (19 passing, 33 rushing, and 2 receiving)and 1,529 rushing yds and 2,782 passing yds. So how is his senior year...

    Colt Atwood-Katy High, TX

    I have mentioned Colt in my Texas HS Football thread. He is a hell of a CB and deserves a shot in college. His lack of recruiting reminds me of another Katy product, Will Thompson. Thompson was the Houston Chronicle Defensive MVP at CB/S and his only offers were from the service academies...

    west african are faster on avarage

    I agree with this statement 100%. Go to any AAU track meet and you will see little kids competing in the sprints. The ratio will be 5 black kids to 1 white kid, yet the white kids will win their share of races, even being outnumbered. While most of the white kids are playing Little League...

    High School track meets

    Jacob Lady-Schreiber ran a respectable 10.78 in the Texas 5A 100m State Championship today, which was good enough for 6th place. It was a wet and cool weekend here, so that is not bad for the soph. Two more years to move up.

    Ed Wang

    True, I work with a Chinese based company and have discussed the NBA with them. They tell me that Kobe Bryant is just as popular as Yao in China, which surprised me.

    High School track meets

    Jacob Lady-Schreiber has qualified for the Texas State Meet in the 100m and 4x200m relay from San Antonio Johnson. He has run a 10.50, 10.55, and 10.59 100m this season. Here's a pic from his regional win. He is only a sophmore, so I am looking for big things in his future. Good luck to him...

    NCAA Approves 35 Bowl Games

    First let me say that I am not defending the current bowl system, but it is a money making scheme for the bowl sponsors. Having played in two bowls (albeit 20 years ago), the bowl sponsors use the game as a marketing tool. The teams get to the bowl site 4 or 5 days prior to the game and are...

    2010 Spring Ball News

    Rice held their Spring game and Taylor Cook, Taylor McHargue, and Sam Mcguffie made plays. Cook is a lot like Matt Jones (although not quite as fast, but with a better arm) and we all know about Mcguffie. Also, Klein Kubiak made some plays at WR...

    Chase Budinger

    The local sports talk radio host was gushing about this play that Chase made in last night's game. But he has been making athletic plays like this for the past couple of months. Here are a few more...

    2010 Indoor Track Season.

    We haven't talked much about Ronalds Araj in the last couple of years. He is the Latvian teenager that moved to Texas in high school and now runs for UTEP. He ran a 6.72 60m at the Husker Invitational a couple of weeks ago and seems to be in good form. Last year he had a PB 10.27 in the 100m...

    Under Armour Combine in Jacksonville

    There's something fishy about their data on that site. They have a DE that ran an incredible 4.13 sec 40 (a new world record?), yet his 20 yd split was only 2.93 sec. So he ran his last 20 yds in 1.2 secs??? That is alot faster than Usain Bolt runs. There are a number of players that ran...

    White Runningbacks Lead The Way

    I feel your pain Riddlewire. Just trying to keep up with all of the skill players in my state (Texas) is a huge task. That is why I tend to only focus on the larger classifications because they are located near the cities where the local newspapers post their stats. Good job!!

    Wesley Leftwich - 2011 WR

    Dallas Burroughs from Meridian ID ran the 6th fastest time at 4.44. He is the little brother to Boise St backup WR Mitch Burroughs. 1) Wesley Leftwich, WR, 6-1/195, Columbia (Mo.) Hickman Time: 4.31 seconds 2) Ted Lampkin, WR, 5-9/160, Omaha (Neb.) Central Time: 4.37 seconds 3) Damiere...

    Daniel Lasco - 2011 RB

    Unfortunately, WP, it doesn't matter what we think here. In most circles here in Texas, Lasco is thought of as mixed race with a strong black component (kind of like Tiger Woods). Even if we consider him 3/4 white, the scouts/coaches here think of him as black, and give him the consideration of...
