Young Pirate defense facing tough challenges early

“I’m very pleased. In the first few days we had all our offense in,” said Vidor ISD Head Coach and Athletic Director Jeff Mathews. “Today (Friday), we had our best day by far, we had full pads and went at it. They flew around.

Offensively, we’ve got a lot of players back. We’ve got Kelby (Odom) starting at fullback, Brad Nunez and Zach Dahlenburg alternated at tailback last year and now they are both starting, one at halfback and one at tailback, Gage Galloway is at quarterback, he started at free safety last year. And if you look, the offensive line, they all played last year, so you expect that. The offense is clicking, they really are.”

Pirates prepare for new district foes

By Randall Luker

The 2018 Vidor Pirates will face new opponents and new challenges in the 2018 season after the UIL’s biennial realignment shook up the old district with Beaumont schools Ozen and Central combining and 22-5A joining with 21-5A to form the new District 12- 5A II. Only perennial district foes Nederland, Port Neches-Groves and recent addition Baytown Lee remain from last year, with Crosby, Santa Fe, Barbers Hill and Dayton becoming new district opponents for at least the next two years.

With a mix of old and new opponents, Vidor head Coach Jeff Mathews says Vidor should fare well in the new District 12 5A Division 2 football district.

Slot reds in the surf can provide fun tussle

By Capt. Bill Watkins

The sun was straight up and hot as we worked along the almost completely flat surf. The water was clear enough that we could see the bottom plainly around the boat. The first sand bar off the beach was visible under about one foot of water and schools of small finger mullet and pogey cruised nervously in and out of the first and second guts. Occasionally, one of the schools of bait fish would jump out of the water and greyhound (leaping in curved arcs) for a short distance before settling back down. There was obviously something that was under the bait that was causing this behavior but there was nothing else to indicate the presence of game fish. “Something is spooking this bait”, I told my guests.

Anual crappie trip fun

By Capt. Bill Watkins

At dawn this Tuesday morning we awoke to the sound of steady rain falling on the roof of our cabin at Powell Park Marina. We were there for our annual crappie trip with Bart Ewing who operates the 30 ft. crappie barge. It didn’t look good as the tropical wave that has been hanging around the coast since Sunday seemed poised to wipe out our trip. But we were there so we wandered on down to the marina restaurant for breakfast. At least the eggs, bacon, and toast were good, as was the coffee. It was still raining when we finished breakfast so we decided to hang out and see what might develop. Bart was a little concerned about the weather but we remained hopeful. At least there had been no lightning. We sat on a park bench outside the marina store and watched the real time weather radar on two different websites.
