Evan Schuller Will Triple Jump Across the Stage

Senior Evan Schuller finishes strong with Canyon Lake Sports

Senior Evan Schuller finishes strong with Canyon Lake Sports

Canyon Lake seems to have a disease that goes around about this time of the year that affects many students.

Senior(itis) seems to be more of a problem at CL than other schools.

A look at schools like Fredericksburg and Yoakum, you will see track teams that have a lot of athletes that are finishing the race as they finish out their high school career.

Evan Schuller is bucking that (itis) trend as he is very involved as he finishes his playing days being involved with 5 track events.

“I did not do any track but Coach wanted me to get involved in my Junior year for football,” Schuller said.

Now Schuller is liking track and is all in for his final year of school, since he does not have another year of football, therefore nothing to be held accountable by coaches.

Hawk Baseball Pre/Season & District Capsule

Thursday, February 12th, 2015

Canyon Lake Baseball, hopes to avoid injuries and other hurdles with the new season approaching next week as the Hawks opened their season with a scrimmage against Llano last Tuesday.

“We played at times looking like it was our first scrimmage,” Head Baseball Coach Trent Dunavant assessed that game.

With this new year of play it will also usher in a district that certainly will be an upgrade from last year’s district.

Granted that statement is based on last year so there will always be teams that might not reach their potential and some teams that will gel and knock your socks off.

Canyon Lake was a team last year that did not reach their potential.

The Hawks entered their campaign last season with more returning starters than they have had since their second year of play when CL was in their second year of competition.

When Head Coach Lloyd Fields was contemplating moving on after this football season, he wanted to meet with other former Coaches as well as The ReSporter to see what the consensus would be for naming an All-Bracken team.

The following were the results of that discussion with a note that the first two years was not represented by people who had actually seen those players in person.

There were a few holdovers from that first club in 2006 but the majority of players on the 2006 team might have a different group that might not have been recognized.

So, with out any delay The ReSporter will name the top 6 players voted on and then expand that list by putting a player for each position on the field which would spread more mayonnaise on your sandwich.

Fresh(man) Start!

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

There are two Hawk players that have been playing for Canyon Lake during the last part of the season when Will Joyner joined the team for a game with Smithville and then invited again near the end of this season.

You would see Joyner on kick-off teams and also playing on the defensive side of the ball these past few games.

Meanwhile Senior Ian May went down over two weeks ago and CL had Jacob Foster filling that void on the offensive line.

Both of these players had carved a nice niche with that Freshman Class as that team has been heralded as the calvary to help stave off an indian attack on the local village.

Yes, that village might have been able to hold their own, but having the Calvary joining this fight will make those losses in war to be reduced.

Rodriguez, an 8th Grader, was selected to play in The Eastbay Youth All-American Bowl and will suit up to represent the West Squad.

Rodriguez played on the Mountain Valley District Champions on the offensive line which helped in the Hawk team to dominate this season in every facet of the game.

“He separated himself by not only by his playing skills….but also how he is good in the classroom because having a well rounded students is first in making our decisions,” EastBay Scout Anthony Williams said. “To be able to play in this game you have to bring the full package in being a good teammate and being a good student.”

The award was presented during the noon time when the whole 8th Grade class was present in the MV cafeteria.

As the Hawk’s Offensive Line goes, so goes Canyon Lake

The ReSporter will always try to get their first article on the Offensive Line for many reasons.

They are bigger than The ReSporter and you always want to be sure they are happy. Another reason is simple, your offense and defensive lines will be that main ingredient for having a good team.

Winning a battle in the trenches will dictate how the opponents will run their offense and defense. Winning this battle will usually result in a win.

This year, The ReSporter wants to start with the strong side of the offensive line. Being the second year with a Slot-T offense, this line will usually take on a lot of responsibilities on blocking for those running backs and hopefully many yards.

Present Beats Past in Alumni Hawk Volleyball Game

Present Beats Past in Canyon Lake Volleyball, 2-1 as the Alumni rallied

from a 18-8 deficit to make it an interesting finish to lose 25-23 final score.

The Past had some height and this Present team had to do some digs to keep the game out of reach for those Past players.

Present team one the first match with a little resistance, but as that second game got going, the Past hit their stride and won in overtime, 26-24.

Coach Kim Paisley will be fielding her second team at Canyon Lake and one thing should be apparent, this team will be one year older.

There were not many Seniors on last year’s squad and with a freshman playing and a few sophomores, CL could not count on having experience to help answer some shortcomings in last year’s season.

“They have come a long way,” Head Coach Paisley said when asked about how the younger players had progressed since the end of last season. “This group has always been competitive and they have kind of grown into themselves. During the off-season I started seeing it.”

Bracken Warriors Prepare for the 2014 Season

Warriors taking a break during practice.

Fall football practice has begun and that long wait now becomes shorter as Bracken Christian began practice this past Monday.

“This year our second day of practice was better than our first day,” Head Coach Lloyd Fields said. “Many times your second day is a fall off and this is the best second day of practice in a while for Bracken.”

Six-Man football has critical dates and one of those times is that first day when Coaches can see if enough boys will show up in order to see they will have enough players for a team.

Yes, there was some Junior no shows that were present for Spring practice 3 months ago, but luckily, BCS also had some new faces also in attendance.

“We have a lot of young kids doing a lot of learning,” Coach Fields continued. “But we have some players like our wide receiver (Freshman Christian DeLeon) looking like our next RJ Braune.”

Braune still holds the single season best for receiving yardage in Coach Fields first year at BCS.

Braune would be top in more of those receiving stats, but in those first two years there were no stats documented. Simple math would tell you Braun would hold almost all of the receiving marks if those stats were known.

Kaelin Simmons Continues to Excel in Sports

Monday, May 26th, 2014

The ReSporter has a hard time catching up with previous Hawk students that had played a sport for Canyon Lake.

Each year there is 2-4 students that have decided to take there trade to College and continue their passion of sports.

Last season CL had a student that did not get offers for continuing her college days in competition for sports but as it turned out has found herself throwing a lot of baggage in the form of a Discus and Shot Put.

This past Track and Field season Kaelin Simmons had a Shot Put heave for 42′ 0.75″ and Discus throw that traveled 129′ 10″.

“I made my mind up the first week of summer,” Simmons said in response of when she had decided to go for trying out for track with Corpus Christi A&M. “I had to wait three months to hear if they (Corpus Christi) would have enough spots and if they might cut some girls.”
