Recently the NFL, National Football League, has made rule changes to one of the most televised games in the United States. The game is now much stricter on roughing the passer, and you can’t put full weight on the tackle, so how do you determine? The defense can’t hit in the head, any contact is a penalty, hit them lo...

With legislative disappointments, censorship, prior review, early deadlines, and all eyes on our staff, we have had to watch our every word with great caution; however, these actions that happened have not changed the fact that being able to spread reliable, accurate, and ...

My phone played the all familiar ESPN jingle as the silent testing room stared. I quietly check the Astros score and get back to work. Sports have been my love for as long as I can remember. Growing up with a family full of boys and uncles that constantly talked, watched, and breathed sports, a passion for sports was destine...

The sound of my beat up Converse reverberated through the large empty halls. As an incoming sophomore, the next three years were a chapter that I couldn’t write fast enough. I wanted it over. Quickly. The sun burned against my skin and the wind whipped my flag on the warm mornings of early week. While I despised the monot...

Life at a 3-1 count

Going into sophomore year it felt like the bottom of the ninth, tied game, runners in scoring position, and a full count. One wrong move and I strike out, setting a tone for the rest of my high school career, but one fastball down the middle and I take it 450 dead centers and start the next three years on the right foot. Much l...

What would the Superbowl be without Tom Brady? Brady has already racked up 5 Superbowl rings in previous years, making this year’s his 6th. Undoubtedly, Brady has done what no other quarterback, let alone player, has done in NFL history. Although no one can argue the stats and the fact that Brady really is the “goat”,...

And then it was the time of year that so many cigar stained voices had talked at us about. We had all collectively entered into the sugar-water-logged caboose of the year, elbows deep in promises of snow and cheer and miscellaneous winterland flora, and just like the year that had lead up to that point, it was slapped out of ou...

An incurable case of widespread sensationalism

As everyone who has mustered the willpower to actually read in the past year and a half will most likely already know. While even I may realize that the prior sentence I wrote may delve slightly into hyperbole, entire swaths of professional journalists believe that it is entirely possible. 2018 has seen the highest number of journali...
