CHS Football: Tigers have tough day in 7-on-7 round robin
It's an ambitious schedule, one that promises to push Corsicana's Tigers, who find themselves playing DeSoto, Dallas Carter and Waxahachie in 7-on-7 football this summer.
On Tuesday, the Tigers hosted the other three teams in a round robin set of three 30-minute games, and had trouble with DeSoto, one of the best Class 6A programs in Texas, and Dallas Carter, a powerhouse in 5A, before battling in a tough 2-1 loss to 5A rival Waxahachie.
DeSoto won 5-1 and Carter beat the Tigers 5-2 at Tiger Stadium, where Corsicana Coach Steve Hoffman liked some of the things he saw but was upset with the way his kids competed.

Morgan: There's no luck like bad luck ...
This week contained a Friday the 13th. I will assume some of you spent the day avoiding black cats, walking around ladders and tossing salt over your shoulder.
I’d say this year, at least in this part of the world, it would all be a waste of time.

GC Baseball/Football: Kerens' Anderson is a two-sport All-Star
Looking for the best arm and best hands in the Golden Circle?
They belong to the same guy.
That's Kerens' Brett Anderson, who is so talented that he found himself in a unique dilemma this week.
Anderson was chosen to play in the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association's All-Star Game at Round Rock's Dell Diamond, and he was also chosen as a wide receiver to play in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Victory Bowl in Waco.
One problem. Both games are Saturday.
