The Teague Lions (11-0) will take on the Cameron Yoe Yoemen (7-4) this Friday night in an area matchup at Waco I.S.D. Stadium with the kick-off set for 7:30 P.M.

The Yoemen are back-to-back state champs and also are the leader in all-time wins for any program in the state of Texas.

“There is no doubt that the program at Cameron is successful and they have been very good in recent years. That being said I wouldn’t trade what we have going here at Teague for anywhere else. As is any successful program there are things that they do that help them be competitive year in and year out and there are things that can be learned from those type of places but I think that can be said about us here in Teague”, stated THS Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Donnie Osborn.

Teague will have their hands full with All-State tailback Traion Smith (5’10 190 4.7) who was last year’s state title game M.V.P. and had a big game last week in the Yoe’s 41-21 win over Glen Rose.

Cameron is coached by Rick Rhoades and operate out of the spread offensively and line up in a 3-4 on defense.

“They are not fancy on either side of the football. They line up and play sound and are good at what they do. They have a very good running back and receiver and are very good on the offensive and defensive lines”, added Coach Osborn.

The winner of this match-up will play the winner between Winnie East Chambers (10-1) and Little-River Academy (7-4)...
