New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - August 11, 2011, New Braunfels, Texas HERALOZEiTUNG.COM | Thursday, August 11, 2011 | 5 CHS XC braves summer heat By Nadia Hoffman Sports Correspondent If you think the blistering summer heat slowed down the Canyon cross country team, then you don't know the desire behind this (Cougars squad. Coac h Sheila West used some* unconventional training methods to help beat the heat, while still f)reparing her team tor the 2011 season. "I didn't notice any problems ► NFL Cowboys going home, still far from done with camp SANAMTONIO(AP) The [Villas C'owboys are going home after Kvo wt*eks in the Alamodome. Thi'y know they are still far from fin^hed in training camp. "It's a transition," defensive ('nd M.irc us S[x*<»rs said "I don't think any of us in our right mind think that this is th(' (‘nd ot t ,mip. We don't break (am[) uritil lati* August. ... We didn't have a lot ot time to gfc^t logethc'r during the ottseason, so there's still a lot ot work left to dont'." (oach lason C'iarrett put his team through a walkthrough Wednesday morning before breaking the first part ot camp and returning to North Texas, l^allas plays (Denver in its prcseason ofxnier tonight at Cowbovs Stadium. Tlie Cowlxjys had 1 i days of practice whilt' in San Antonio. “It's been good. I think we've accom[)lishc'd a lot," tight end jason Witten said. "I think we've' taken a mindset whc-n It could've bc'en a lot of distractions over the last two weeks bet ause the season happenc'd c|uk k. C^iuys came here rcvuly to work." ts|x\ ially on defense*, with new (cxKclinator Rob Ryan installing his schc'me with out the benetit of any offsc>a-son workouts or meetings [x'c ause of the 4 I 2-month NFL lockout. The presc'ason game will bc‘ (juarterl)ackTony Romo's first action against a team other than his own since Oc t. 25, when he suffered a broken collarbone against the New York Cjiants. Dc‘spite only two wec'ks of camp after no organizc'd offseason workouts, Garrett doesn't exf)ect much difference from how teams handled ()reseason openers in the past. "You try to get a chance to evaluate as many players as you can. ... The preseason game's allow you to evaluate the players bc'tter than any other situation," Cjarrc'tt said. "Also, we're trying to get our team ready."

"This year, we did interupted runs, where we would run three to five miles and then go get in the river and tred water for 1S-20 minutf's. Then we'd run another three or five miles. That helped them (ool off." Returning this season on the girls side is juniors Landa Dowdy and Erin Newland, while senior Ashtin Cadell — a transfer from ( anyon Lake — and freshman Dominique Tilly should help give some leadership boost for the ( c)ugarettes, who were tops in {district 27-4A last season. "We won all three divisions last season," West said. "And I plan on doing that again this season." Senior Iordan Hoffer Ic'ads the lx)ys team, as he is the’ only return- ing runner on varsity. But West hopes that Pc'dro Villa, Mason Garcia and Bond Birkner, who she nabbexi from the track te\im, will bolster the boys squad. "f or the guys, they placc‘d sec -ond last ye\ir in the distric t," We*st said. "I hope to im[)rovc‘ on that and challenge for a title."

HS FOOTBALL TRAINING CAMP TOUR: CHS Photos by LAURA McKENZIE | Herald Zeitung Canyon coach Matt Elliott, left, looks on as his Cougars run through conditioning drills during Wednesday’s practice. New field highlights Cougar practices By Chris Hoffman The Herald-Zeitung It is only 22 days betore Cougiirs Sta(]ium's new red fielil debuts m front of the liome crowd, but the frenzy is already building tor ( anyon football. The players, s[)orting rc'd workout shirts, felt right at home during two-a-d<n workouts that sc'cond-yc'ar coach Matt Flliott said have bc'en extremeK productive. "We only have' 16 or 17 days of [practice bc'fore our opening game (against Nc'w Braunfels)," he said. "And wc^ have to make' c>ac h prac-tice count." Elliott and his coaching staff have numerous hole's after the exixius ot ke‘y starters due to graduation. One of the bigge'st holes for Ellie:)tt to till will be the loss of se'n-ior Zach Williams, who lexl the tc'am in rc*ceiving with 22 catclies for 427 yards, and was a dangerous dc'Ic'nder in the (ougar secondary. Returning is junior George Williamson, who was a "sophomore sensation" last year when he rushc'd for 724 yards in only 7 game's .ifter injuriéis forecTi his promotion from the junior varsity sc|uad, and will be used on l>oth side^s of the ball this season. Right now, Elliott said there is a competition for numerous positions, and a lot of c^ue^stions will Ix* answerc'd once the Cougars begin ()racticing with f)aeis on Friday. "That's when you se^e what you rcMlly have as far as a football te\im," he said, "I think we're in the right position. The kids have had a ye\ir unclear their belt with the coac hing staff, and we expc\ t to play e'ven l)C'tter this season." The Canyon football players work on speed drills during afternoon practice on Wednesday. The Cougars open the season Aug. 26 on the road vs. New Braunfels The C'ougars went 4-7 overall and 3-3 in District 27-4A to earn a playoff berth, while ne\irly stunning New Braunfels in the first game of the season last year. Elliott said they have a lot to l)uild on, and practices have lx*c'n intense to ge*t preparexi to face the Unicorns in a rematch on Aug. 2(). "There is an excitement at practice," Elliott saici. "The kiefs come to practice every' day wanting to work hard. The te\im has really bokc'd crisp, e'spe'cially since we have such a short turnaround from the start of practice until the first game. "We know we're not going to Ix' as gcxxl the first wex?k as we will in the fifth we^k. You go into the sea son wanting to gc't Ix'tter c'ac h day and wanting to l>e building to playing your be'st tbotball when it matters the most." The heat, whic h is a concern of coaches all over the country, has be'en regally mild this ye\it for the Cougars, who train at 7:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. daily, which helps them avoid the extre^me hc'at in the latter part of the day. And if t ie blistering heat continuers, Elliott thinks the Cougars' early morning practices wi 1 stay in place to avoid any heat-relate^l ineide>nce‘s. "We f)robably will be out there at the crack of dawn practicing," Elliott said. "But we'll [iractice some after school to ge‘t them reaciy to play."
