Teague Lions to Host Caldwell Hornets for Homecoming Game
Thursday, September 18, 2014 - BY BRETT DILLON
LION RUNNINGBACK JOHN LOVE slices through the Groesbeck defense for a 34-yard touchdown run during first half action last Friday night in Groesbeck. Love had 30 carries on the night for 281 yards and 3 touchdowns.
The Teague Lions (3-0) will host the Caldwell Hornets (2-1) for Homecoming 2014 this Friday night at Lion Stadium, while looking to stay unbeaten on the young season. Kick-off time is set for 7:30 p.m.
Teague Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Donnie Osborn has seen many Homecomings in his day as an assistant and administrator at Teague High School, but this time he’s running the show for the Lions and has many current and ex-players, students, and supporters fired up for Friday night’s game.
“I’d be lying if I said it didn’t mean just a little bit more than a typical Friday night. I want our Exe’s to see the 2014 Lions in action and taking care of business. That being said, we will prepare and be systematic in our approach as we have done in the last three weeks. If we do that, the scoreboard will take care of itself,” said Coach Osborn.
Caldwell defeated Madisonville 28-7 and are coached by Bobby Jack Goforth who seems to have the Hornets headed in the right direction in his second season at the helm.
Defensive-end Jacob Kovar (6’0 210 4.8) anchors a defense that just limited the Madisonville Mustangs to just 7 points and will look to slow down the Lions’ potent, balanced attack.
“They are without a doubt the biggest football team...More →
Ross Provost Helps To Straighten Out Lord’s Storehouse
Thursday, September 18, 2014 - BY MIMI BROWN
There was a time when the Lord’s Community Storehouse, Teague’s food bank, was in trouble. People were loading the storehouse up with clothes and old “garage sale” items. At that time Rev. Jeff Powers was the president and he was worried. The volunteers were working so hard to keep up with the clothes and non-food items that they were getting bogged down and bugs and mice were coming in with the clothes. More and more families were coming in need of food and the storehouse was full. Rev. Powers knew he had to do something quick. He called the man who he knew could help, Ross Provost.
Mr. Provost had a vast experience in working with food banks. He helped food banks in Houston, Pearland, Cleveland and others to be more efficient and help more people who really needed to feed their families. Ross met with Rev. Powers and he told Powers what needed to be done immediately. He said, “After a walk-through with the president of the Teague food bank I found many items that needed to be corrected. Many of the overhead lights were non functional and they were using lamps. There were extension cords on the floors and some electric wires were bare and plugs that were overloaded. The clothing was overstocked and...More →
