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 Astros have now lost five straight games and the starting pitching and bullpen have let them down over that stretch. Cristian Javier was recently demoted to help him build up his stamina so that he can pitch deeper in games as the team's 5th starter when the schedule demands a 5-man starting rotation. But in the meantime, the Astros could desperately use his help out of the bullpen, and he's likely headed for relief duty when Framber Valdez returns from injury anyway. So this begs the question, is a role as the team's fifth starter the best way to maximize Javier's abilities? Check out the video to find out.
