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
For the second year in a row, we played San Antonio’s MacArthur in the first round of playoffs, and again we defeated them, tonight winning 62-13 (read last year’s post here). It was a great game, and like always, the Knights made some huge plays (I saw the Steele Knights turn two interceptions into TD’s and also return… Continue reading Knights Win 1st 2015 Round!
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!
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
I am so happy to report that the Knights beat Dallas area’s Desoto tonight in quite a nail-biter, 35-33! This comes after our very tough loss last year to them (read about that here), so the victory was extra sweet! The Knights had a few fumbles and issues, but overall played great! It was a close one… Continue reading Knights Get Redemption Against Desoto
Before I write anything, I must profusely thank Scott’s mom and dad for braving the 6 hour round trip in the car with me and three kids under age three, not to mention one of them being sick (read more below) and a hot football game in 90-100 degree weather!! There’s no way I could have… Continue reading Knights Defeat Panthers, 45-0
Today was Steele’s annual scrimmage against San Antonio’s Johnson High School, and not only was it a dry run for both teams, but it was also a dry run for me with 3 small kids! That said, I can’t tell you much about the game as I was focused on not losing a small child… Continue reading Steele Scrimmage: A Dry Run for All
We just got home from the 2015 Meet the Knights “Pepper Rally” as Landri calls it, and the kids majorly passed out! They had an absolute blast. Highlights for Landri were: * seeing the football players, * seeing Nitro and Glycerin (the Knights’ mascots), * dancing along with the band and cheerleaders, * hangin’ with Momma… Continue reading Meet the Knights 2015
