New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - October 18, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas Herald-Zeitung :“J Friday, October 18, 1996 Sports Day ■ To talk with Sports Editor David Winder about Sports Day, call 625-9144. ext. 24. Sports Pay Submitted photo Chelsea Riley of JAR Gymnastics doss bar floor routine at the Judges Cup Meet in Austin last week. JAR Gymnastics will host their own meet tomorrow and Sunday. Football playoff races heating up By DAVID WINDER Sports Editor Last week, the Smithson Valley defense was able to shut down the high-powered Canyon offense. This week the Rangers will have to shut down another one. Smithson Valley (4-2,2-0) will travel to Hays (4-2, 2-1) to take on the high-scoring Rebels at 7:30 tonight. Through six games, Hays has outscored its opponents 186-170. “They’ve pretty much been able to score at will against whoever they’ve played,’’ Ranger coach Larry Hill said. “They’ve got a huge offensive line and good running backs and receivers. They don’t have anything that you can point to and say ’that’s their Achilles’.’” Hill said the type of offense the Rebels run makes them explosive. “They have a very diverse style,” Hill said. “Their base offense is the wishbone. One play they’ll come at you and try to bloody your nose a bit. Then the next play they’ll be lined up in the shotgun trying to spread you (Hit.” Hill said die Rangers are ready for another big game in District 28-4A. “Our kids are excited about it,” Hill said. “Hays is going to be ready, and we’re going to be ready. It’s going to be a 48-minute war, and we’re going to do our best to win the war.” The Canyon Cougars (4-2, 2-1) will battle in their last non-district war of the season when they take on visiting Corpus Christi King at 7:30 tonight at Cougar Stadium. Many 28-4A teams have a week off during district play because of the odd number of teams in the district. Cougar coach Larry Nowotny said time off was not an option. “We wanted to play,” Nowotny said. “It was really tough though, because we could only match up with the SA schools out of Corpus Christi or the 3 A district with Hondo in it. Usually the 3 A teams do not want to play a 4A school. “We really had to scramble. We were fortunate to get a game and to get a team to come here.” Nowotny hopes that when King arrives at Cougar Stadium it will find a different team than the one Smithson Valley upset last week. “We’ve got to be emotionally ready to play,” Nowotny said. “I think last week we were never emotionally into the game. Smithson Valley took the fight to us and took us out of the game physically. “It* the first time in a long time that we weren't able to respond.-We’ve played a lot of good (Mins over the ytlfa and have always been able to retpood.” Canyon will try to improve on the things it already does without making any changes, Nowotny said. “We’re not going to do anything different,” Nowotny said. “We’re going to do what we do and try to do it Herald-Zeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL Smithson Valley’s Brad Triesch tries to bring down Canyon’s Jamaal Sargent last week. a little bit better each time. You can't change what you do at this point of the season.” For the fourth week in a row, the New Braunfels Unicorns will have to be at their best to get their first win in District 26-5A. After three tough losses, the Unicorns (3-3, 0-3) are not down about their chances against 1995 5A state champion Roosevelt (4-2, 1-2) at 7:30 tonight at Unicom Stadium. “They’ve got the same attitude they’ve always had” New Braunfels coach Tim Kingsbury said. “They’ve been exceptional about coming to the new district. They’ve come out with great work habits and enthusiasm. We’ve had three good days of practice.” Roosevelt is coming off a 28-16 win over Converse Judson. “They’re the defending (5A) state champions and they beat the other (5A) state champions (Judson),” Kingsbury said. “So they've got a lot credibility nght there. But they do have two district losses, which means they can be beat. We’re still going to have to play extremely well and take care of the ball .” Kingsbury said the Unicorns will have to put more points on the board than they have in the past. Madison beat the Unicorns 17-10 last week. “Offensively, we’re going to have to score more than IO points,” Kingsbury said. “We’ve made some adjustments, because they (Roosevelt) plays a lot of man coverage. They’re very similar to Judson. Our receivers are really going to have to work at getting open.” The Unicorns also must work on getting their ground attack going. “We're going to have to concentrate on running the football,” Kingsbury said “They held Judson to 65 yards rushing. The most yards they’ve given up was to Churchill, 124 yards. They’ve got a real strong defensive front.” Healthy Pokes ready to beat up on Falcons DALLAS (AP) — Running backs coach Joe Brodsky recently compiled a videotape of every Dallas Cow boys running play this season. He planned for it to be a teaching tool for the young players, but what it revealed was not surprising. “We had a running back not completely healthy and an offensive line hurting,” Brodsky said. “When we had a week to rest, we did a good job. When we're healthy, we're a good running team.” They haven't been healthy much. Mark Tuinei appears headed for offseason knee surgery. Two months after spraining the medial collateral ligament in his right knee, he’s still having problems. Right guard Larry Allen began training camp recovering from knee surgery. Center Ray Donaldson had undergone ankle surgery and right tackle Erik Williams, toe surgery. Even Emmitt Smith was nursing a host of ailments. “I think it goes way back to training camp when we didn't have guys together,” Cowboys offensive coordinator Ernie Zampese said about the Cowboys' weak running game. “Everybody has injuries. You can use any excuse you like. We were just not playing well. We were not playing with any consistency.” Maintaining their health may be another issue. The Cowboys play the winless Atlanta Falcons on Sunday and won't have another week off'the remainder of the season, so they've got to hope that one of the NFL's oldest off ensive lines can stand up to the weekly punishment. “We're old," Tuinei said. “That’s obvious. We're going to keep going out there until they find a young guy to do the job.” In other developments, two-way player Deion Sanders participated in defensive drills only Wednesday. Coach Barry Switzer held him out of offensive drills because of a noticeable limp. •Tted for 1st Place — 2nd Place -Tied for 3rd Place 4th Place •Tied for 5th Place 6th Place Last Place “EXPERT” FOOTBALL PICKERS Last Weak: Season Total: BiUj Parnell IO-5 62-28 David Winder 8-7 62-28 Dong Loveday 8-7 61-28 Dong Toney 10-5 60-30 Debbie Scott 8-6 60-30 Becky LaLannc 11-4 58-31 Nathan Millett 8-6 56-34 & I IN Jack Osteen 10-5 56-34 Karen Carol Ann Reininger    Avery 10-5    7-8 54-36    48-42 Roosevelt at New Braunfels Roosevelt New Braunfels Roosevelt Roosevelt Roosevelt Roosevelt Roosevelt Roosevelt Roosevelt New Braunfels Corpus Christi King at Canyon Canyon Canyon Canyon Corpus Christi King Canyon Canyon Corpus Christi King Canyon Canyon Canyon Smithson Valley at Hays Smithson Valley Smithson Valley Smithson Valley Hays Smithson Valley Hays Smithson Valley Hays Smithson Valley Smithson Valley Kansas St. at Texas AAM Texas AAM Texas AAM Texas AAM Texas AAM Texas AAM Kansas St. Texas AAM Kansas St. Texas AAM Texas AAM Nebraska at Texas Tech Nebraska Nebraska Nebraska Nebraska Nebraska Nebraska Nebraska Nebraska Nebraska Nebraska Colorado at Kansas Colorado Colorado Colorado Colorado Colorado Colorado Colorado Colorado Colorado Colorado Oklahoma at Baylor Oklahoma Baylor Baylor Baylor Baylor Baylor Baylor Baylor Oklahoma Oklahoma Auburn at Florida Florida Florida Florida Florida Florida Florida Florida Florida Florida Florida Ohio St. at Purdue Ohio St. Ohio St. Ohio St. Ohio St. Ohio St. Ohio St. Ohio St. Ohio St. Ohio St Ohio St. Atlanta at Dallas Dallas Dallas Dallas Dallas Dallas Dallas Dallas Dallas Dallas Dallas Miami at Philadelphia Philadelphia Philadelphia Philadelphia Philadelphia Philadelphia Miami Miami Miami Miami Philadelphia New England at Indianapolis Indianapolis Indianapolis Indianapolis Indianapolis New England Indianapolis Indianapolis Indianapolis Indianapolis Indianapolis Pittsburgh at Houston Pittsburgh Houston Houston Pittsburgh Houston Houston Pittsburgh Houston Houston Pittsburgh Baltimore at Denver Denver Denver Denver Denver Denver Denver Denver Denver Denver Denver Oakland at San Diego San Diego San Diego San Diego San Diego Oakland Oakland San Diego San Diego Oakland San Diego From the home office in scenic Angleton, Texas the New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung is proud to present “The Experts” Top Ten Lists.
