The Pirates scrimmage Silsbee here August 16 and West Orange Stark here August 22. The Pirates’ first home game is September 13 versus Conroe Caney Creek. The Pirates first game is at Montgomery August 29.

Pirate football (and band) fans hoping to score reserved seats for the 2019 season better hurry, because there is less than one week to either claim your on hold seat or purchase one of the few remaining open reserved seats. With a lot of new this season-new field playing surface, new offense and defense and new crop of athletes and musiciansthere is a lot of excitement and anticipation of all that is to come and that is reflected in ticket sales.

Pass offense and defense square off in The Hot Box earlier this month as the Pirates prepare for an exciting 2019 football season.

You know football season is not far off when Texas Football magazine appears on news racks. Packed with information about Texas football teams from the NFL to 1A and private schools and everything in between, it makes for an interesting read and an opportunity to “scout” an upcoming opponent or favorite team.

For some folks, it’s the Football Bible while others take the reports with a grain of salt.

Vidor Head Coach and Athletic Director is of the latter view. “Look at where they’ve had us,” Mathews said as he reeled off years where Vidor had been dismissed as non-competitive yet made a playoff appearance.

How to show good sportsmanship

Article Image Alt Text

Winning isn’t the most important part of team sports. Good sportsmanship is the primary goal.

Children and adults learn many valuable lessons while competing in sports. Participating in sports helps solidify lessons in following directions, and can teach athletes the value of dedicating themselves to goals. Sports also provide physical exercise and an opportunity to exhibit good sportsmanship.

A 2014 national survey of 2,000 youth sports parents and coaches by Liberty Mutual Insurance revealed that even though they believe sportsmanship is one of the most important lessons of youth sports, 50 percent of respondents feel that sportsmanship has worsened in youth sports since responding adults were children themselves. Some startling findings included 60 percent of respondents reporting either witnessing or participating in negative or abusive sideline behavior, and 55 percent of coaches have experienced parents yelling negatively at officials or their own children.

Prevent dehydration during the dog days of summer

Article Image Alt Text

A person’s desire to be outdoors can sometimes be at odds with the outdoors itself. The dead of winter tends to be a time of year when people know to stay indoors, but the dog days of summer can be dangerous as well.

Heat-related diseases like dehydration can put lives at risk. According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, children and people over the age of 60 are particularly susceptible to dehydration. Understanding dehydration and how to prevent it is essential for anyone who plans to spend time outside during the summer.
