COMMERCE — The coaching staff at Texas A&M University-Commerce will be hosting the inaugural Ladies Football 101 on Saturday, Aug. 21.
Not to sound like a sports car commercial, but it was apparent Saturday that Sulphur Springs had a lot more zoom than Lindale.
The two teams met at Gerald Prim. One play into the scrimmage on the sun-splashed Saturday, it was the Wildcats showing off their jets.
While Sulphur Springs won the scrimmage overall 4-2, it was the first score that turned heads.
Kendrick Daniels grabbed a swing pass from quarterback Justin Owens as he came out of the backfield on the first play for the Sulphur Springs offense. Daniels followed blockers, turned the corner and then was off to the races. It wasn’t even much of a contest as he zoomed 70-yards for the first score of the controlled scrimmage.
Speed is fun to watch, and Wildcat fans were smiling on the first play from scrimmage Saturday, when speedster Kendrick Daniels turned a swing pass into a 70-yard touchdown.
Daniels, one of the fastest players in the region, got seal blocks from wide receivers Alvin Frazier and Chris Ford and no one ever got close to him. Lindale defenders shouldn’t feel bad though, because Daniels has the speed to go the distance on any play.
The Sulphur Springs Lady Cats and head coach Brandi Small hope that the winning is just beginning.
Friday afternoon they recorded their first win of the volleyball season, taking wins over Mount Vernon 25-18, 28-26, 25-14 in non-district action played in the Sulphur Springs High School gym.
