They’ve also got a football season coming up. Houston players and coaches are trying to concentrate on those two facts as they work their way through the final week of training camp. “We’ve got enough to focus on," said veteran offensive lineman David Williams, who ended his holdout and practiced with the team Monday after signing a one-year, $2.7 million contract. Coach Jeff Fisher said he was glad to see Williams in camp.“It’s a big plus for us. We’re disappointed it took so long, but we feel like we've got time to get caught up," Fisher said. It will be important for Williams to practice in pads before the San Diego Chargers arrive on Wednesday, said Fisher.NB Jr. League All-Stars to be honored at banquet From staff reports The New Braunfels All-Stars will get a final tribute this week for their recent history-making ride to the state championship.

"We're not blessed with too many six-footers, but we are strong in other areas," said Boehle who guided the team through its first day of practice on Monday. We have several talented girls back from last year. They know each other real well and have good team chemistry on the court. On top of that, they are such hard workers." Ranked No. 5 in the San Antonio area, Canyon returns eight seniors from a 1994 squad that finished 22-9 and advanced to the bi-district round in the playoffs. Hays, Smithson Valley and Canyon ended the season in a tie before the Cougarettes clinched the district runner-up spot with two playoff wins. "Last year was such an exciting finish," Boehle said. "Everyone counted us out, but our girls showed a lot of perseverance. I think we surprised some people." Boehle hopes that season-ending drive cames over into this season, and she has several reasons to believe it will. Outside hitter Elizabeth Weisman, setter Kim Brunette and middle hitter Lesa Porter — three all-district players returning from last year — are the core to well-balanced squad. Other seniors include defensive specialist Jinny Barranco, outside hitter Shannon Young, defensive specialist Corby Collins, defensive specialist Thuy Lee Nguyen and outside hitter Julie Poppoon. Several underclassmen are primed to play key roles this year. The Cougarettes could be calling upon defensive specialist Tyana Michalec, middle hitter Cheryl Dunn, outside hitter Lesli Reimer, sophomore setter Kendra Reimer and freshman outside hitter Tiffany Weidner, Boehle, who begins her 25th year of coaching volleyball, will get a good look at the talent on Wednesday when Canyon hosts a four-team scrimmage at Cougar Den. The field of teams includes Round Rock, Converse Judson and San Antonio Marshall. "The scimmage will give us a good idea of where we are at this point," Boehle said. "All three teams are highly-ranked in the area and in the state." Judson is the No. I-ranked team in the area while Marshall falls into the No. 4 spot. Round Rock is a perennial state power. The Cougarettes open the season on Thursday in the San Antonio Independent School District Tournament. District play begins Sept. 28 at Hays. The 28-4A schedule expects to be a hanl-fought race. Smithson Valley, Hays and New Braunfels, which finished 27-4 and won the district crown last year, are set lo challenge for the title.
