806’S “SUPER SIX” RETURNING OFFENSIVE LINEMAN IN THE 806..TOP 5 TEXAS OL, TOO..

As media folks get all excited about a quarterback delivering a bomb to the receiver, or a tailback springing free for a long touchdown run, let’s not forget: those plays don’t happen without an offensive lineman making a block, picking up a blitz, or taking out a defensive lineman during the play. The value of a great offensive lineman is immeasurable to any team and their success, or non-success. If you don’t believe me, just look at the contracts the offensive lineman are getting in the National Football League. With…

As we continue the Life of an 806 Athlete series, part two focuses on the coach: the leader, contact, assessor of talent, and the main link most of the times to a student-athlete getting into prime position with a recruiter for a scholarship. What is the coaches role in the process? Where does the parent fit into all of this, and what is a recruiter looking for to get on their radar? Here is part two below. I started off asking coaches what advice would you have for a player…

806 FOOTBALL MANIA: TOP 10 3A/2A GAMES IN 2016… LET’S RUMBLE..

2A and 3A football, the heart of the gridiron and most of the time overlooked by the mainstream media. Not here in the 806, especially since we have the back-to-back state Champions from Canadian moving up to class 3A Division II this fall.

So, here goes…

806HSSC: THE RODNEY DANGERFIELD OF 806 HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS COVERAGE

“I don’t get no respect.” That’s what the great actor Rodney Dangerfield stated at one point in his career. I thought this quote accurately describes me in this 806 media world. Why say that? Well… We can start with me asking different businesses to help sponsor a magazine for 806 high school athletes and getting responses that ranged from, ” We will jump on board after a few years since you are a start-up.” to “You’re my competitor, so I can’t do that.” Who would’ve thought that I was a…
