Pitching prowess: Sam Houston braces for Sulphur's staff

MOSS BLUFF — The hard-hitting, third-ranked Sam Houston Broncos will host No. 6 Sulphur and its loaded pitching staff today in a District 3-5A showdown.

The rivalry between the Tors and Broncos has been a tight one in recent years with the two teams splitting the last 10 games. Game time is set for 6:30 p.m.

Hill: 'We expect a good crowd' tonight: Cowboys to put up a good fight with rival UL-Lafayette

The Cowboys (18-6, 9-0 SLC) are yet to lose a game at home this season and have won 16 straight games at the Jeaux dating back to last season, including a win against LSU less than a month ago.

Unexpected opportunity turns career tide

This is not how, or when, I envisioned it ending.

Today’s baseball game against Nicholls State is my last assignment for the American Press. Tomorrow I’ll be moving to Tuscaloosa, where I’ll begin covering Alabama athletics for the Anniston Star.
