Golden Circle Football: Week 10 Preview

Corsicana — Dawson at Wortham

7:30 p.m. Friday

At Bulldog Stadium

RECORDS: Class 1A Dawson is 0-9, 0-3 in District 9-1A DII. Wortham is 3-6, 1-2.

PLAYERS TO WATCH: Dawson: OL/LB Jake Strother, WR/DB Marvin Manning, OL/DE Mark Martinez, RB/DB Alex Ruiz. Wortham: RB Tyvon Freeman, RB/P Shane Sykora, NT Cameron Lewis, RB/DB Kyle Goener.

UPDATE: Dawson travels to Wortham to finish the regular season in a showdown between two struggling Bulldog teams … Dawson lost its Battle of Highway 31 contest against Hubbard, 70-0, a week ago while Wortham had a bye … it’s been an uphill battle for both squads this year, as they have posted the two lowest totals in the Golden Circle in both total offense and points scored … Wortham holds the edge in each of those categories, however … Dawson has scored 68 fewer points in 2012 than this week’s foe … Friday night’s matchup holds playoff implications, with the final postseason position still up for grabs in 9-1A DII, and Wortham looking like the favorite to claim it … in 2011 Wortham downed Dawson, 49-6, behind an 82-yard rushing performance by RB Freeman … it was the lone win of the season for the Bulldogs in blue and white … Wortham racked up 265 yards on the ground, and scored 35 points in the first half to claim that victory … Dawson was held to just 78 yards of offense in the loss … RB Dalton Long scored the lone touchdown for the black and gold Bulldogs in that meeting.

  • GC Baseball/Softball: Mildred names Zamzow new baseball coach; AD Chambliess to coach softball again

         The Mildred Eagles didn’t have to go far to find a new baseball coach to replace Aaron Tidwell, who left the diamond to take the job as the principal of Mildred High School.
        On Saturday, Mildred named softball coach Brett Zamzow its new baseball coach as Zamzow, who was Tidwell's assistant for five years,  moves back to baseball after spending a year coaching softball.
        To complete the move Mildred Athletic Director Billy Dan Chambliess will take over the softball team. Chambliess, who is the head football coach, spent fours years coaching softball before becoming the school’s AD last year. All four of his teams won district titles.

  • RON MORGAN.jpg Morgan; Remembering House and a better era

    The Cowboys started training camp the same week that Robert Newhouse died.
    In a way, that’s very unfortunate for Jerry. Thinking back to the “Human Bowling Ball” and the teams of that era might lead to the inevitable comparisons to today’s product on the field.

    His father was a head coach for years at Pecos High and his brother-in-law is the head football coach at DeSoto, but Lawrence Williams Jr., a man who loves coaching football, never had any ideas about being the head man.
    “I love coaching,'' said Williams as he sat at his desk in Blooming Grove, where he became the Lions' head coach this summer. “I just never thought about being the head coach and I never applied to be a head coach. With this job I can still coach.''
