  1. Sabine Pass is a district of transfer students with majority from Port Arthur so the demographics are not the same as other districts. Class sizes and boy/girl ratios vary year to year. Kids come and kids go.  If 5 sophomores boy leave they aren't necessarily replaced with 5 sophomores boys.Their athletics struggle 2nd to not having a feeder system or having an idea of who or how many of your players will return. They would like to have a solid football program but can't count on steady numbers. Now if they wanted to have a real program they would actively recruit athletes from Port Arthur like they do their scholars, recent  valedictorians: 2016 Columbia University admit, 2018 Bill Gates scholarship winner turned down MIT due to not offering degree plan for career they're aspiring too.  
  2. I think they should do like Big Sandy and focus on Basketball and Baseball if you have 8 kids that are decent you can compete, if you have 10 you have a chance to do something.
  3. After I read the season previews and saw the turnout I told my wife they should cancel football. They just don't have the numbers. There aren't enough kids to scrimmage in practice, not enough kids big enough to play on the lines. There's no JV or freshman teams, which makes it dangerous because you have kids going from middle school football to varsity who aren't ready for JV and in some cases aren't ready for freshman football. I hate to see it because you have kids that want to play just not enough of them. I thank God there were no major injuries before they pulled the plug.
  4. Well, if he doesn't that's one thing. On the other hand,  if he does then he should be the obvious choice.
  5. This should be a no brainer for BISD the most qualified Coach from a basketball and political stand point has ties to the 2 schools with the richest basketball traditions in the city. The board / advisors / overseers (whatever they are called) need to make this happen and if it doesn't happen it shouldn't be because they didn't try EVERYTHING  possible. JMO. #beenthereinPA.
  6. According to the PA News Coach Joubert won:  The Don Coleman  3A Outstanding Coach Award 
  7. JMO- In the end Silsbee by 15 maybe 20 Unless Carter coach has a helluva halftime speech.
  8. PA BASKETBALL IS BACK: Mission Accomplished- On to the next one. Things are back to the way it's supposed to be. PA vs Everybody.
  9. Silsbee vs Somerset

    JMO -  It makes sense to bring him. He's (family) part of the team. If he's suspended and not kicked off the team. You keep the kid close and you still have a chance to teach / reach him. I guess he messed up in some form or fashion. He's paying the price and learning a lesson. You leave him behind (he could feel thrown away ) you may lose him to outside factors. 
  10. My 47th straight state tourney

    Have you ever counted how many times (years) there has been at least one SE Texas team in your 47 trips ?
  11. I wouldn't say there's nothing to talk up,   because I can hear it in the kids voices and I see it in their eyes. But like Coach Coleman said: What the kids have done; and are trying to do is not a Memorial expectation its a Port Arthur expectation. When Coleman came back and put Port Arthur instead of Memorial on the front of the new uniforms he laid down the gauntlet.  The kids have a new (OLD) point of reference and the desire and pride to play for PA is back.
