Parker County football game capsules — Week 1


Repetition in the Slot-T can only help the Bulldogs be more prolific, and with the installation of a new defense, as well, Millsap should be in a much better position to embrace both systems with a decent-sized senior class and “veteran” juniors who endured last year’s varsity trials.

Dublin returns nearly the full compliment of last season’s starters, and despite a sound beating at the hands of Hico in its inaugural contest, may have a some misplaced confidence in thinking Millsap will be a walk-over.

The Bulldogs backfield spread out the touches in the rushing game last week, with Andrew Tyson the most productive, averaging five yards a carry.

Millsap is thirsting for a win, and would love to use Dublin as a pivot point for its 2013 fortunes.


Brock vs. Dallas Episcopal

Time: 7:30 p.m., Friday

Site: Jones Stadium

        4100 Merrell Rd — Dallas

Type: Regular season game

Last year’s result: N/A


Dallas Episcopal Eagles (1-0)

Last season: 3-6 overall, 2-5 in SPC North Div.

Last week: Beat John Paul II (Plano), 41-7

Players to watch: LB Nigel Naulls (5-11, 245, 4.8); DL Jeff Patton (6-4, 260, 5.2); WR Grant Matzen (5-10, 165, 4.5); QB Thomas Fitts (6.1, 175, 4.9).


Brock Eagles (1-0)

Last season: 2-0 varsity record

Last week: Beat Gateway Charter, 34-0

Players to watch: QBs Joseph Earl, Seth Boleman, RBs Leddy French, Matthew McCartney, Kolbin Mills, O-line Jake Earl, Cooper Gore, Tyler Collier, D-line Hunter Pittman, Billy Tedford, Titus Gossett.


Game notes: Running, passing and receiving, QB/RB Slaten Gough, one of Brock’s three seniors, accounted for more than 250 yards of the Eagles’ 411 yards of total offense last week. 

Gough shared time at quarterback with Seth Boleman, staying extremely busy even when not taking snaps. Brock dominated on both sides of the ball with proficiency in its win over Dallas Gateway. About the only downside to Brock’s attack was losing the ball via fumbles three times.

  • Summer athletic camps — July/August

    Staff Report

    Summer athletic camps become a bit more “meaningful” in the late days of July and into  August, at least for some high school and middle school athletes.

    In most cases, the youth football camps include grades 6 through 8, and though there is no contact involved, some of the instructors of he camp may be getting a preview of the talent coming their way in just a few short weeks.

    Team volleyball camps, stretching from grades 4 through 12, provides a segway for many of the campers who will soon be entering workouts for the impending volleyball season.
