Countdown to Kickoff: ULM wants to finish games better in 2015

Sports Editor

There was the best of times, there was the worst of times.

That saying described UL Monroe’s 2014 season in a nutshell, particularly during the fourth quarter.

Just ask the Warhawks’ head coach.

“It was a difficult year for us (in 2014),” ULM’s Todd Berry said at Sun Belt football media day in New Orleans last month. “We opened up and three of the first four games of the season, we won basically on the last play of the game, and in five of the final six games of the season, we lost on the last play of the game.” 

Running and Fitness: This job is important and in high demand

When runners enter a race, one of the things they look for is if the distance is certified. 

A race distance that is certified means the distance of the race has been measured by a person riding a bike to make sure it is accurate. If the race is a 5K and race organizers measure the course in a car for 3.1 miles, chances are the course is either short or long by as much as 300 yards or more. A measurer will measure the distance as 3.1068560 miles. Those last digits are not seen on a car odometer.

With the the aid of some ill-timed throws on the part of quarterbacks Tyler Jones and Connor White, the Bobcats' defense picked off five passes and authored easily its best practice through the first week of preseason camp.

It’s not how you start, but rather how you finish.

Lawrence White probably agrees with that adage — although it’s clear that the senior tight end is far from a finished product.

So what kind of player is he?

Well, White has arguably been the best player on Texas State’s talent-rich offense, outside of junior quarterback Tyler Jones and senior tailback Chris Nutall, through the opening week of preseason training camp.

High School Football: Rattlers hitting their stride on defense

Quick and precise.

That’s how San Marcos’ defense wants to attack opposing teams this season as the group builds around a healthy blend of young emerging players and senior leadership.

A couple of position changes might lead to an adjustment period for a few players, but the Rattlers feel confident that their unit will back up their already potent offense.
