Congratulations to the Carthage Bulldogs for advancing to the finals with a convincing 51-22 win over La Grange tonight. As I wrote several posts ago, one of the most disappointing games I covered was last seasons semi-final lose to El Campo. As upsetting as the game was for me it had to be ten times worse for the coaches and people of Carthage, so is was great to see the Bulldogs overcome this hurdle. I’ll post a few pictures later, but its been a very long day.
After about 2 hours sleep I got up at 6 to get to Aledo’s 7 AM practice, ate lunch and ran a few errands before heading to Cedar Hill to catch up with them and see their walk through. When that was done, it was on to Mansfield to stand on the cold and misty sideline for their game. Tiring, but it was great to jump back into some Texas High School Football after a year away and nice to see so many of the coaches and kids again. Tomorrow, I’ll get up at 6:30 to drive to Waco for the Cedar Hill-Lake Travis game.
Good luck tomorrow to Stamford, Aledo and Calhoun. I can’t be at your games, but I’ll be checking scores regularly and thinking of you. Midnight now and time to get some sleep before another long day.
