Cypress Springs’ 2018 senior class was expected to be a special one, and two of its members participated in football’s new early signing day. Receivers Taye Barber and Jah’marae Sheread confirmed their commitments to TCU and Texas State at their school’s ceremony on Wednesday.

There have been a lot of decommitments in recent days, but Barber and Sheread didn’t want to waste time. They had already found their home for the next four years.

“I felt like they could use me to my best abilities,” Barber said of TCU’s program. “I just can’t wait to get there, build the relationships with teammates, get dubs, and have fun with my team.”

“I fell in love with the school,” Sheread said of his official visit to Texas State. “It felt like home once I got there.”

Neither player experienced the football postseason while playing for Cy Springs, but they definitely left a legacy. They combined for 10,129 yards and 101 touchdowns during their varsity careers.

“These two kids never gave up,” said coach Rick Cobia. “The success we did have, they were a part of.”

The wait is finally over! The Houston Texans schedule has been released and we have some thoughts.

With the Texans playing on Christmas Day (Wednesday) against the Ravens, that means they'll have to play three games in 10 days. And it's not like the opponents are pushovers. They have to face three playoff teams from last year (Dolphins, Chiefs, and Ravens).
