Bloomington Football Preview & H.S. Volleyball Scores

Posted: Updated:


Bloomington football is doing something this week it could not do all season last year.
That is to practice at their home stadium. The Bobcats could not play a home football game last season because of damage to the stadium caused by Harvey: Structural damage to the bleachers, plus destruction of the press box and scoreboard. Bloomington had to play all of its home football games on the road, most of them in Port Lavaca, and ended last season 0-9. This season, the Bobcats' stadium is in the process of being fixed, they have a new head coach in Chris Horn, and they have 14 seniors. Coach Horn talked with our Sean Coffey about how the Bloomingtom community rallied around the team after Harvey. "I think that was something that was unique to every kind of community that goes through those sorts of things. And it was nice to see a community come together, boys and parents and grown ups, teachers, coaches, everybody come together and form a good bond and find a way to fight through something difficult like that."
Bloomington football's first scrimmage comes at their stadium a week from Friday night against Yorktown. 
Next Monday, Bloomington is holding a Back To School Meet The Cats Community Bash.
It starts at 5:30 at the Bloomington FEMA Dome. Free hot dogs grilled by the Bloomington ISD board members.

Here are Thursday night's area high school volleyball scores. West losing twice at the Columbus tournament.
The Warriors first lost to former district opponent Fulshear in three, 18-25, 25-7, 15-10.
Then West loses to two-time defending state 3A champion Goliad, 25-17, 22-25, 15-11.
Change in schedule, the Warriors will host the Tigerettes next Tuesday night at 6:00.


MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) - Kenny Stills and two other Miami Dolphins protested during the national anthem before Thursday's exhibition game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
    
Receivers Stills and Albert Wilson kneeled behind teammates lined up standing along the sideline. Defensive end Robert Quinn stood and raised his right fist, as he did during the anthem last season with the Los Angeles Rams.
    
There were no apparent demonstrations by the Buccaneers.
    
Stills kneeled during the anthem in the 2016-17 seasons and has been vocal discussing social injustice issues that inspired the protest movement by NFL players.
    
The league and the players' union have yet to announce a policy for this season regarding demonstrations during the anthem after the league initially ordered everyone to stand on the sideline when "The Star-Spangled Banner" is played, or remain in the locker room. The Dolphins issued a statement before training camp saying all options regarding the team's policy remain open.
