GC Football: Hubbard rips Meridian 46-6 to end perfect district season

MERIDIAN — The Hubbard Jaguars, behind 134 yards rushing and one touchdown by Logan McClinton and 110 yards and four touchdowns from Trey Henderson, clinched their third straight district championship with a 46-6 win over the Meridian Yellow Jackets.  

The Jaguars scored on four of their first five possessions to sprint out to a 30-0 halftime lead. After surrendering their first points in district play in the third quarter, Hubbard tacked on two more scores in the fourth quarter on Henderson's fourth score of the game and Casen Martin's 2 yard run for the 46-6 win.

Coach Craig Horn's squad relied almost solely on the run as they accumulated 325 yards on the ground, while QB Braydyn Gillham completed four of nine passes for 31 yards. The Hubbard defense lead by LBs Jordan Johnson and Tre' Knight limited the Yellow Jackets to 156 yards of total offense.

Hubbard finishes the regular season 9-1, 4-0 in District 9-1A Division II and receives a bye the first round in the playoffs. Meridian drops to 5-5, 3-1 in district play and will enter the playoffs as the second place team and will face an opponent yet to be determined in bi-district.

    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.''

    Kaylana Dickson got the name Bebop on her way to winning a national title in gymnastics this summer, and boy did it catch fire.
    Kaylana, a Corsicana native, picked up fans from all over the country and many bought Bebop T-shirts to help pay her expenses to Spokane, Wa., where she won the 8-and-under title in the double-mini trampoline event and finished third in floor exercise.
    More than 100 of her friends, family members and fans showed up at the Corsicana YMCA on Saturday to celebrate the national title and be on hand for a drawing for an autographed New Orleans Saints football jersey from David Hawthorne, a star defensive lineman for the Saints and Kaylana's uncle

    Call it the rarest of rares, at least as far as all-state teams go. Brett Anderson of Kerens shows up on the Texas Sports Writers Association/Collin Street Bakery all-state team not one, not two, not three, but four times. Dawson's Lane Dotson was a second-team outfielder, and the Bulldogs' Trent Underwood made the third-team as a pitcher, and also garnered an honorable mention nod at first base. Kerens outfielder Brent Warren was also an honorable mention pick.

  • RON MORGAN.jpg Morgan: All-star games and all-star shame

    If there is anything more useless than a political promise, it’s an all-star game. I don’t care what sport at what level. Any all-star game is simply an exhibition, a reward for being among the best (maybe). Any one of them is about as relevant as the IRS’s “dog ate my homework” excuse for losing emails.
