Abhaya. It means fearless in Sanskrit, the language of yoga. And it’s on a necklace that I wear all the time. And as I put it on today, it struck me that this was exactly the attitude that the Steele Knights needed to adopt heading into tonight’s game against top ranked Judson. Abhaya. Fearless. Tonight… Continue reading Steele Knights Defeat #1 Ranked Judson!!!
Tonight the Steele Knights defeated the O’Connor Panthers, 45-24! It was an awesome game and I actually got to watch the whole thing because my children weren’t there, LOL! One of my college roommates published her first novel, The Changelings, and her book launch party was this afternoon in Austin. It was too tricky for… Continue reading Knights Win & New Football Swag
Tonight the Knights lost a heartbreaker in double overtime to the Lake Travis Cavaliers, 56-59. This will be a game that will forever stand out in my memory, as it was one of the most (if not the most) intense games I’ve ever attended. In short, it was an evening plagued with drama, starting off with a lightning delay, followed by rain and… Continue reading I Love Our Knights
Wow! What a great way to start the 2016 Steele Knight football season with a 37-7 win over San Antonio’s Madison High School! The Knights played a great ball game and we all enjoyed it once that brutal August Texas sun went down during the first quarter. Prior to that, it was probably the hottest I’ve… Continue reading 1st Knight Football Victory of 2016!
It’s what I call Football Eve…those last few days and moments before the first game of the new football season. The excitement, energy, and nerves in the air is almost palpable. It’s the proverbial “calm before the storm.” And as it so happened, tonight was our annual all school outdoor pep rally, “Meet the Knights,”… Continue reading #BeElite
Tonight Steele defeated Del Rio, 28-10 in an obscenely cold and windy game (and a bit wet too)! We’re talking wind chill probably around 35 degrees max and misting “rain.” I’m very glad that I left the littles at home – they *I* would have been so miserable! Things were definitely rockier than the average Steele… Continue reading State Quarterfinals, Here We Come!
Today the Steele Knights defeated San Antonio’s Brennan Bears, 38-7. It was a 2pm game which was awesome because for once it wasn’t almost midnight when we got home. When you have three kids ages 3 and under, you consider this to be a huge treat! Besides the Knights’ usual stellar performance on the field, the most notable… Continue reading Onto Round 3!
Tonight the Steele Knights not only were crowned District Champions of arguably one of the toughest districts around, but they did so with a perfect record of 10-0! Next week we head into the playoffs against San Antonio’s MacArthur (we played them in the first round last year as well) with a home field advantage… Continue reading District Champs: Knights Score Perfect Regular Season, 10-0!
Tonight at New Braunfels’ homecoming game, the Knights defeated the Unicorns, 47-3, bringing this season’s record to 8-0. And I didn’t watch hardly any of it as usual, but it was for a different (and much more fun) reason than being stressed out by my kids! I had some special company at the game with… Continue reading Knights Defeat the Unicorns, Now 8-0
We had another awesome night of Knight football this evening! Final score, Knights defeat the Wagner Thunderbirds, 55-0. Sadly I was only able to watch about 3% of the game – if that – with all these kids! And that’s with tons of help! I think I’m aging rapidly, because each game gets harder and… Continue reading Knights are 7-0!
