MATADOR MASH: ESTACADO WINS THIRD STRAIGHT GAME IN BLOWOUT FASHION

In a game that we thought would be close due to the memorable match-ups the Estacado Matadors and the Shallowater Mustangs have had in the last few years, this one wasn’t even close after the first quarter. The Matadors made some key plays in the first stanza on defense, including a 92-yard fumble return touchdown and blew out the Shallowater Mustangs, 63-7 on Thursday night. In the first, the Matadors struck quickly with a 19-yard touchdown pass from Bo Sims to “Quavy” Nathan to take a 7-0 lead over Shallowater.…

LOADED MATADORS BASKETBALL TEAM RETURNS FOR 2016-17 RUN…

Estacado won a state championship in 2010. They probably could’ve won three out of four championships as they were the best team in the 4A state tournament in 2009, 2010, and 2012. With that said, they haven’t made it back since 2012, with some major problems getting by Wylie who has sent Estacado home three years in a row; twice in the Regional Tournament, and once in the Regional Quarterfinals. If there is a year that the Matadors can return to the state tournament, it will be this season. Why?…

WHY DO I STAND FOR THE “NATIONAL” ANTHEM? WHY DO YOU STAND??

I remember when I first start covering sports in 2013 for the 806 like it was yesterday. I went to a small school with about 1,500 people in the town and when I showed up to practice the first kid that saw me asked me, “Hey are you with 806?” After that he asked, “Where is your boss, I’d like to meet him because I like what y’all do.” I did a twist and shook his hand and said, “I’m the boss, how are you.” I’ll never forget the shock…
