Training children to fish takes great patience

Article Image Alt Text
The sun was rising like an orange ball of fire out of the Gulf of Mexico as we cruised down the ship channel at Sabine Pass. We were cruising along at thirty miles per hour or so through the green calm waters just enjoying the cool morning boat ride. My wife Shirley and our grandson Levi were my crew on this Sunday morning and we were heading out to the “short rigs” for some speckled trout action. Levi was standing on the deck beside me behind the center console.

The Vidor Pirates opened the 2015 high school football campaign by hosting the Bay High School Tornados from Panama City, Florida. An expected capacity crowd on the home side saw the Tornadoes take a hard fought 19-7 win over a mistake prone Pirate squad. Vidor turned the ball over 5 times and were penalized three times for personal foul infractions to go along with a couple of drive killing holding penalties. Even with the mistakes, the Pirates were  in position to take the win with just over two minutes left in the  game. Unfortunately a big hit by the Tornado defense caused a turnover that led to a “scoop and score” play for Bay High that led to the final score and put the game out of reach.

The Vidor Pirates will kick off the 2015 high school football season against an out of state opponent, Panama City FL Bay High School. Last year Vidor travelled to Pensacola FL to take on Escambia High to open the season and fell to the Florida boys 35-6 in a game that was later forfeited to the Pirates, due to ineligible players and recruiting of players charges against the coach.
