get a good seat for the state semifinal game between Tomball and New Most of the folks braving the speed traps on Interstate 10 will be wearing blue and hoping the Unicorns can reach the state finals for the first time since the But Singletary will have the Cougars on his mind on the three hour drive to Spring The 1974 Tomball High graduate is hoping his alma mater can reach the state finals for the second time in a Im a real faithful he Ive been following Tomball quite a Every Saturday I beat it down to the store to get the Houston Chroni cle and see how they the pastor of the Lakeside Baptist was a defensive end on Tomball teams that lost four games in three seasons in the early Hes kept up with his alma mater through the tough times the entire coaching staff was fired in a scandal in 1976 and the recent good times the Cougars lost to Denison in the state finals last year and were ranked 1 all this Hes also followed New Braunfels this and said he thought that this weeks game might pair the two My wife says that no matter who I Its the thrill of a lifetime to see a team from where I grew up and one from where I live Larry Singletary best teams in the My wife says that no matter who I he Its the thrill of a lifetime to see a team from where I grew up and one from where I live This years Cougar team is quicker that last but not as Singletary The one thing I was afraid of this year was he I knew the offense I knew was going to be pretty But in the last two theyve shut out two good offensive teams one good passing tfump and wf good running the Cougars biggest weapons are halfback Bubba Greely quarterback Lance I havent seen too many school backs who can turn the comer like Greely Singletary Hes not a speed but het one of those guys who has the knack of getting around the corner and ting down the attention from college CBftcin over the I think this game will probably be as good as a state be I jut vUl could meet a week later in the atale
