Albertsons Market Game of the Week - Pirates vs. Lovejoy

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This week the Pirates take on a talented Lovejoy team at Wylie Stadium.  The Leopards are 2-1 with their first loss since October, 2011 to Frisco during week 3.  Their quarterback, Bowman Sells, was injured during week 2 and sat out the Frisco game.   Despite the loss, they still lead at #3 in the DFW area 4A in total offense averaging 500+ yards per game.  Sophomore Dakota Michaels stepped in as QB and has shown he is quite capable.  Other playmakers for Lovejoy include Daniel Sefcik and Hunter Pfaff at running back and Chochy Luce at receiver, giving them a very balanced offense.

Both teams are coming off of a bye week, which gave them the opportunity to heal with both battling injuries.  Returning this week for the Pirates will be Jarell Brown and T’Kevian Rockwell, who were out the last couple of games with injuries.  This will definitely be an added strength to the defense and the Pirate’s running game. 

Looking at it for the Pirates, Coach Howard said, “Our defense needs to get the right fits and reads and adjust to the schemes they come up with.  Lovejoy is well coached and their kids adjust pretty quick.”  Offensively the Pirates will need to take care of the ball and move it.  “I think we have a chance to be very effective on our offense against their defense.  One of our strengths going in is that we have the ability to move the ball against them.”  

Pre-season is now over and the real season begins.  “Both teams will have a lot of energy.  We have to match their energy and play good solid football for 48 minutes,” said Howard.  Kick-off is at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

First Baptist Wylie Hall of Honor Profile - Staci Watkins Sherman

 

 

 

Hall of Honor 1998 Inductee Staci Watkins Sherman comes from a long line of “Pirates”.  Her grandmother, Irene Watkins, taught in the Wylie Independent School District for many years.  Both of her parents are Wylie graduates and her father, Wally Watkins, who was very instrumental in the school district, has an Elementary school named after him.  With this strong "Pirate blood", it is no surprise that Staci went on to represent the Pirate family as she did.  

Staci graduated in the WHS class of 1979.  During her four years at Wylie High, she was a four year letterwinner in both volleyball and basketball.  She played tennis three years and ran track for two years.   She received All-District honors in volleyball, basketball and tennis.  One of her fondest memories as a Pirate, was riding the old Pirate bus, especially after a big win on the road!  

Upon graduation, Staci received a four year full scholarship to East Texas State University (now Texas A&M Commerce) for Volleyball.  She, of course, left her mark there as she was named Most Valuable freshmen (1979) and Honorable-mention All-American (1980).  Sherman was an integral part of the 1980 Lady Lions Volleyball Team, which acrued eight-straight wins in the post season to reach the NAIA Championship finals against Azuza Pacific.  The Lady Lions lost to Azuza Pacific in the First annual NAIA Volleyball National Championship tourney ever held.  Her successes continued as she was named Team MVP and selected Lone Star Conference 1st team in 1983.  In 2005, Staci was inducted into the Texas A&M Commerce Athletic Hall of Fame.  Her 1980 Volleyball team was inducted in 2010. She has served on the Texas A&M Commerce Athletic Board of Directors since 1998.

Finishing her degree in K-12 Physical Education and Health, Staci taught and coached in various Texas schools for twenty-nine years.  Leading up to her retirement, she taught 5th/6th Grade Physical Education at Draper Intermediate.

Staci and her husband, Larry (Allen Eagles '77), have been married 32 years and have two daughters, who have each given them a grandchild.  They have two beautiful granddaughters, Paisley (3) and Mia (4 months).  Both daughters also became teachers and presently teach in Texas.  Her daughter, Aly, played basketball for West Texas A&M and was named Lonestar Conference Defensive Player of the year in 2011.

Her encouragement to fellow Pirates, “Work hard and push yourself everyday!  Enjoy every minute of your athletic career because it goes by really fast!  Most important – HAVE FUN!”

Albertsons Market Game of the Week - Pirates vs. Mesquite Poteet

 

 

 

 

After a big win against the Mesquite Wranglers last Friday night, the Pirates will face the Mesquite Poteet Pirates this week at Memorial Stadium in Mesquite.

Poteet, who is ranked #2 in DFW Class 4A by SportsDayHS, has a 2-0 record thus far and is one of the top 20 teams in the state.  In their first two games of this season, Mesquite Poteet has averaged 50 points a game and has only given up an average of 23 points on defense.

With a team full of seniors, comprising a top class of players, they are very strong on offense and defense.  Senior quarterback Lane Novy has had 606 yards passing and 317 yards rushing so far this season.  A host of talented skill players has given Novy many sure targets.  In their game against Frisco Liberty, Poteet scored on five of its first seven possessions, with a different player getting each.  In their game against Arlington Seguin, junior running back Jaylon Smith rushed for 139 yards and two touchdowns.  Their offensive line is made up of returning seniors with much experience.

With top ranked college prospects making up their defense, their defense is as explosive as their offense.  Junior linebacker Malik Jefferson and senior linebacker Malachi Cobb helped force four punts on Liberty’s first six possessions last week. 

Wylie improved a lot last week in all areas.  The running game is forming and last week showed great improvement with 179 yards rushing over all.  Defense was on top of their game and held West Mesquite to only 236 yards with two turnovers.  The Pirates are still overcoming some injuries, but are continuing to get better as they get ready for district.

“This is the kind of game that is fun to play.   You play somebody that is highly ranked and it shows you where you are at and where you need to be”, said head coach Bill Howard.  “We have to take care of ourselves and not make mistakes.   Our players have to make plays – Kameron Kelly, Alex Wesley, Carsen Cook, Jordan Whaley, Elijah Harris, Ja’Vareyea Hicks – these guys have to make plays.  If we do that we have a good shot at beating them.”
