Behind most games, there’s a story of some sort. This week it was about a match-up between two incredible teams: The Steele Knights (12-1) and the Churchill Chargers (11-2). Steele, entered the State Quarterfinal game for the 7th straight year in a row, while Churchill made it’s first appearance in the fourth round of playoffs in two decades. And not only… Continue reading Knights Heading to State Semi Final Game!
Tonight Steele played the Weslaco East Wildcats at Buccaneer Stadium in Corpus Christi. It was quite a long day – the kids and I left the house at 9:33 am and arrived back home a little past 11 pm! But the big round trip to the city by the sea was worth it as the Knights shut out… Continue reading Knights Advance to State Quarterfinals
Winter finally blew in yesterday for the first time this year, and boy was it cold at our game last night! I think the wind was the worst part, but that didn’t stop the Steele Knights from playing a great ballgame and shutting out Austin’s Vandegrift Vipers 17-0. I had forgotten how awesome the cold… Continue reading Onto Round 3!
Last night was awesome! The Steele Knights finished out the regular season with a bang and defeated the Clemens Buffaloes (Scott’s alma mater), our hometown rivals, in a great game, 34-13. I’m not sure on the exact stats as far as our record with them, but I’m pretty sure that we’ve defeated them every time we’ve… Continue reading Knights are 2016 District Champions!
Last night Steele beat the New Braunfels Unicorns 38-7. I was kid-free again (getting spoiled here!) and enjoyed not getting slimed by blue sticky drool, not changing any “hot loads” as Rex likes to call them, and not having to police three little monkeys! Probably the most surprising thing about the evening was the cold… Continue reading Knights Defeat Unicorns
To the Steele Knight Football Team: I just want to take a few moments to share some thoughts with you about what an incredible group of human beings you are. My three year old daughter Landri instantly lights up at the mere thought of attending your games, and besides hugging Knitro, “high fiving playa’s,” is… Continue reading KNIGHT NATION: Letter to the Boys & Challenge for the Fans
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 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
Tonight it wasn’t just the sky that was filled with electricity. The Steele Knights were about as powered up as the lightning bolts coming down around Lehnhoff Stadium prior to the game’s start. We began the game strong, driving swiftly down the field and scoring our first touchdown just a little over 2 minutes into… Continue reading Knights Remain Undefeated, 5-0
