We’re less than 24 hours away from national signing day, and one of Ryan’s biggest recruits still has a decision to be made.
Earlier today, the University Interscholastic League released its 2014-16 realignment and reclassification.
We posted the districts earlier, and we’ll have more on the new changes in tomorrow’s paper. But until then, here’s an illustrated look at where the football district of your favorite school is located.
There will be a lot of coaches across the state that won’t get much sleep tonight.
The tossing, turning and late-night pacing will be a result of the University Interscholastic League’s release of its biennial realignment and reclassification at 9 a.m. tomorrow.
Things are getting a little clearer at Ryan with a week left until national signing day., but there is still uncertainty regarding the Raiders’ top recruits.
If you want to catch all the realignment fun but don’t feel like leaving your house for it, you can leave the house slippers on.
When I first started out working here, I figured out there was still a lot of random items in my desk, something that’s probably true just about everywhere.
Well, I came across this Ryan football banquet program from 2001, the year the Raiders won the first of two Class 4A state championships. In honor of Ryan’s football banquet tonight, I figured the Ryan folks would get a kick out of it.

The latest weekly installment of the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches rankings was released today and two of the area’s top teams retained their lofty rankings.
One of the newest entries into the reality television genre has caught a lot of heat from folks around the state.
The Esquire Network debuted a new show called “Friday Night Tykes,” a show about five pee-wee football teams in San Antonio.
Well, the Texas High School Coaches Association is not pleased with the show’s representation of the state’s beloved past time. The THSCA issued the following statement today regarding the program:
“The language and coaching tactics on Esquire Network’s “Friday Night Tykes” are in sharp contradiction to the Texas High School Coaches Association’s core beliefs”, says Executive Director D. W. Rutledge. “It also contradicts what is taking place on the majority of youth football fields across the state. We are disappointed that the Texas Youth Football Association President Brian Morgan suggests that this style of coaching in our youth leagues is acceptable in Texas. Nothing could be further from the truth.”
To be fair, I haven’t seen the show because I can’t find the Esquire Network on my local cable provider (that, and I watch “Friends” 90 percent of the time my television is on). But when you see tweets like this, you know it’s time to be concerned.
That running back for the Northeast Colts looks like a kid that will be playing on saturdays at a D1 university in a few years.
