As NFL free agency kicks off, here’s a look at a dream Dallas Cowboys off-season player acquisition scenario:
Senior guard Phil Forte scored 24 points as Flower Mound Marcus rallied from a 7-point second half deficit to defeat Fort Bend Travis 56-52 Saturday night in Austin for its second straight Class 5A boys basketball state championship.
I like Ryan Tannehill. I think the former Texas A&M quarterback has the physical tools and leadership intangibles to possibly develop into an NFL starter down the road.
Torrey Henry capped a frenzied last minute rally with back-to- back three-point shots in the final 29 seconds of the game as the Dallas Kimball Knights secured back-to-back Class 4A state basketball championships with a 78-75 win over Houston Yates in Austin on Saturday afternoon.
For the first time in school history, the Argyle Eagles won the Class 3A boys basketball state championship in Austin on Saturday with a 44-33 win over Corpus Christi Miller.
Duncanville used a suffocating full court press to build an insurmountable 24-3 1st quarter lead as the Pantherettes cruised to their 7th girls basketball state championship __-__ over Spring Dekaney on Saturday night in Austin.
Defending Class 5A state champion Flower Mound Marcus, led by McDonald’s All-American Marcus Smart, faces its toughest challenge yet in the UIL state playoffs when it squares off against 6th-ranked North Crowley tonight at 6 p.m. in the state’s marquee matchup as regional tournaments tip off across Texas.
The Cowboys are clearly in need of defensive pressure players, whether in free agency or the draft. As of now, it appears there will be slim pickings among edge rushers when free agency opens on March 13.
All-American Matt Jones, a junior who has committed to play college basketball at Duke University, scored 29 points Tuesday night to lead 8th-ranked DeSoto to a 64-55 regional quarterfinal win over 19th-ranked Richardson Berkner.
The North Crowley Panthers advanced to their fifth straight high school basketball regional with a 64-33 conquest of Arlington Bowie on Monday night.
The events of Sunday at the combine pretty much take Dallas out of the running for the best QB prospect in this draft not named Luck or Griffin.
The third round of the UIL boys high school basketball playoffs tips off this week with a Monday night showdown in Arlington.
