It’s a great time for sports

jsoutherniconI absolutely love this time of year. Baseball is ramping up for the playoffs, football is kicking off its season and other sports, including the recently concluded Olympics, are keeping the sports schedule packed.

Last week was an amazing week in sports for me. Sports photography is one of my great loves and I got to photograph three Sugar Land Skeeters games, two Houston Astros games and the preseason Houston Texans game.

While I’ve been busy doing that, news coverage has not been lacking. Unfortunately, space in this edition of the paper is, but that is because we have our high school football preview filling up the back section. Our reporter Bill McCaughey has done an outstanding job covering each of the Fort Bend ISD schools.

Our front pages also include some more sports coverage, but local news as well, including an upcoming election in Richmond, the start of the citizens police academy and Sugar Land updating its parks and recreation plan. A lot of what I was working on outside of sports are feature stories and previews of upcoming events that were not urgent and could wait another week. Unfortunately, a lot of the items submitted by the public for publication had to be held. The timely ones will go on our website (www.fortbendstar.com). If your item hasn’t run yet, please be patient. With apologies to the New York Times, a small paper like ours can only print all the news that fits.

That being said, I want to use this column to introduce a second, seasonal column. The new column will run in sports and will be called “Shootin’ the Bull.” Rather than being a traditional sports column, it will be a photo column featuring pictures and brief commentary from each home game of the Houston Texans. First out of the shoot is this picture of the one and only touchdown in the Texans game against the New Orleans Saints. It shows Will Fuller hauling in the ball for the score against cornerback P.J. Williams.

Regretfully, I will have to hold the pictures from the Astros games. I went there because the St. Louis Cardinals were in town. I’m no fan of the Redbirds but two of their players are from Fort Bend County – Matt Carpenter (Elkins High School) and Randal Grichuk (Lamar Consolidated High School). Look for those photos online or in next week’s paper (space permitting).

Speaking of hometown talent, when the Saints came marching in last Saturday they brought with them Craig Robertson, a 2006 Stafford High graduate. That story, too, is available on our website.

I think I’m beginning to sound like a broken record with all the references to our website. Even so, we have a lot of good information there and you really should check it out. Also be sure to join us on Facebook. We post and share a lot of things there that don’t get into print. It’s all good stuff and we’re honored to bring it to you.

In the meantime, high school football returns this weekend. We look forward to seeing you under the Friday night lights!
