This has been one the most emotional weeks in our household in a very long time. I’ll get right down to it. Scott has been promoted from the Head Football Coach/Campus Athletic Coordinator at Steele High School to the Schertz Cibolo Universal City School District’s Athletic Director, responsible for athletics, health & physical education. While… Continue reading A New Chapter for Scott
What a year! 14-2. We were blessed to have the opportunity to play sixteen games this season – something that out of thousands of teams, only a handful get to do each year. We traveled to Dallas to play in the famous Cowboys Stadium. Our only two losses this season were to the Texas High… Continue reading I Love Our Knights
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!
What a night! Somehow I had forgotten how intense the energy of a playoff game is…I guess because it’s been a year (?)…but I was definitely reminded last night when I walked into Lehnhoff stadium for round one of the 6A Div II playoff game of Steele v the San Antonio Brandeis Broncos. Holy smokes,… Continue reading Playoffs: #knitrobaby Debut & a W
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
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!!!
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!
