The Lights. The Game.

I believe this Quarter Final is the farthest any Mountaineer team has ever gone in the playoffs, six or eleven man. Win or lose these Mountaineers are special, have come a long way, and should be proud.

The Santa Anna Mountaineers will face the Gordon Longhorns at 7:30 Friday November 30th in Comanche.

The 11-1 Mountaineers are ranked 12th (21st overall) and the 9-3 Longhorns are ranked 10th (16th overall).

Who they have played:
Lost to Ira 24-28
Lost to Stephenville Faith 44-35
Beat Blanket 64-14
Beat Dallas Academy 84-38
Beat Strawn 36-34
Beat Brownwood Victory Life 62-6
Lost to Richland Springs 44-92
Beat Gustine 54-8
Beat Evant 68-22 (Santa Anna beat Evant 54-0 in Week 5 which is +46 Gordon and +54 Santa Anna)
Beat Lingleville 81-34 (Santa Anna beat Lingleville 61-16 in Week 11 which is +47 Gordon and +45 Santa Anna)
Beat Zephyr 88-42 (Santa Anna beat Zephyr 40-20 in Week 8 which is +46 Gordon and +20 Santa Anna)
Beat Savoy 66-21

Gordon is favored by eight by sixmanfootball.com.

I think it is going to be a very close game. The Mountaineers will have to play their best defense, take care of the ball, and make extra points to win this game.

Get your black and gold on, bring your gloves, hats, coats, and blankets on and I will see you at the game!

Crank up your speakers and try this to get you in the spirit:


The Lights. The Game. The Results!

Mountaineers are Region Champions

The following was written by Assistant Coach David Garcia.

The Santa Anna Mountaineers had a lot to be thankful for during the holiday break. Santa Anna still kept their play-off run alive this past Friday as they took on the Blum Bobcats in Blanket.

The Mountaineer football team took the field under the coaching of Cameron Norris, Robert Adams, and David Garcia, and it was evident that the Mountaineer coaching staff had one thing in mindÖ.defense. The Mountaineers once again relied on their defense to pull off the victory against a very stout Blum football team. The Mountaineers made sure that the Bobcats earned every yard and only gave up one big play on a missed coverage assignment. Senior QB, Talon King, had three picks for the Mountaineers, returning one for a touchdown. King also returned a kick-off for a touchdown.

The flipside of the ball was a different story. Unlike previous games, the Mountaineers had a season high six fumbles and one interception. The ball was turned over five out of the seven times. Luckily, the Mountaineers were still able to score 79 points in the game. Junior running back Michael Valencia took control of the rushing attack over the Bobcats.

Next up for the Mountaineers will be a very tough and physical Gordon team. The Longhorns are coming off a victory over Savoy. The Gordon Longhorns won their district as did the Mountaineers. This week's game will be played Friday in Comanche. Kick-off is scheduled for 7:30pm. The winner will go on to face the winner of the Abbott/Oakwood game which is being played in Mexia on Friday as well.

Gordon is an 8 point favorite over Santa Anna. The Mountaineers wouldnít have it any other way. They have been the underdog since the beginning of the season. The underdogs are still in the play-offs!


The Lights. The Game.

The Santa Anna Mountaineers will face the Blum Bobcats in an Area playoff game Friday November 23rd in Blanket. Santa Anna will be the home team and wear white.

The 10-1 Mountaineers ranked 10th in Division 1 (18th overall) will face the 7-4 Bobcats ranked 37th(78th overall). Santa Anna is favored by 45 points.

Bi-District Champions

The following was written by Assistant Coach David Garcia.

The Mountaineers got the ball rolling and 45'd Lingleville in the Bi-District round of the play-offs. The Mountaineers had not played a game in two weeks and it showed early on. The first half of football was fairly close as the Mountaineers made mistakes on both sides of the ball. This did not last too long in the second half of the game. The Mountaineers seemed to wake up as soon as the 2nd half whistle went off and Michael Valencia returned the kick-off for 80 yards for the opening touchdown. From there on, the Mountaineers scored and scored often. The final score, 61-16.

"We were rusty and it showed. It's pretty tough having to wait two weeks for a game. Our last actual contact against another team was against Lometa. We did have two good weeks of practice, but not playing that weekly game does change things up a bit. The boys seemed to get back into the groove as soon as the second half started," stated Coach Garcia.

"They are young and full of energy with a young coach who feeds of the energy of the players. We cannot take them (Blum) lightly," said Coach Norris on his thoughts on Blum.

The Mountaineers now move on to the Area Round of the Play-offs to face Blum. The game will take place in Blanket at 7:30pm on Friday. The Mountaineers will be the host and the home team, but will wear white for this week's game.

The Mountaineers would like to invite Coleman County, the surrounding areas, and of course our football family from District 9-1A to come out for a great night of football.

Be Safe over the Holiday Week and Have a Great Thanksgiving.
From the Santa Anna Mountaineer Football Team and Coaching Staff.

The Lights. The Game.

Well it is finally the the big time for the Mountaineers! The Playoffs!

It's win and your in or lose and go home. Regardless of the outcome of the game the Mountaineers have had a great season and it has been fun to watch.

The 9-1 Mountaineers will face the 7-3 Lingleville Cardinals in a Bi-District matchup Friday November 16th in May at 7:30PM.

The Mountaineers are ranked 13th in Division I 6-Man(21st overall combined D1 and D2 sixman), just below Zephyr at 10th and Lingleville is 49th(114th overall) just ahead of Evant at 50th. Just goes to show the rankings don't matter too much... Dave Campbell's pickers favor Zephyr for taking Region III.

Who they have played:
Beat Rising Star 51-6
Beat Moran 70-25
Lost to Sidney 20-42
Beat Granbury Cornerstone 39-34
Lost to Dallas Academy 36-58
Beat Cranfills Gap 47-45
Beat Gold-Burg 56-8
Beat Evant 61-56 (Santa Anna beat Evant 54-0 in Week 5)
Beat Gustine 69-68
Lost to Gordon 81-34(Note: Gordon is ranked 16th and will face Zephyr in their game in Hico on Saturday at 7:30)

Not much else is known about Lingleville in the sixmanfootball boards... I think this is the first or second year they have played football since they played for two years in 1966 and 1967.

Lingleville is located 11 miles due West of Stephenville and 12 miles due North of Dublin.

They did have an awesome one act play that we saw back when Jessica was in school. They also had a pretty good girls volleyball team as a search of the santaannanews.com archives showed the Lady Mountaineers defeating them for Consolation in the 2005 Albany Classic.

The Mountaineers are favored by 45 points according to sixmanfootball.com

The winner will face the winner between Blum and Saint Jo who play Friday in Lewisville.

Put on your Mountaineer Playoff Black and Gold and head over to May and I will see you at the game!

Play-Off Bound

Contributed Coach David Garcia
It was all but calm after the game in Rochelle. Zephyr defeated Rochelle by more than 20 points causing an automatic coin flip to determine who would represent the district in the play-offs and who would be #1 & #2 in the district.

While all Rochelle, Zephyr and Santa Anna all ended with similar records, only two teams could advance into the first round of the play-offs. After the game, coaches from all three schools met in the middle of the field with fans surrounding the two goal lines and the home side line waiting for the results. When the coins landed, Zephyr and Santa Anna coins landed on heads and Rochelle's coin landed on tails and eliminating them from the play-off picture.

"It is just a bad way to not be in the play-offs. They (Rochelle) deserve to be in the play-offs just as much as we do," stated Coach Norris. Norris later approached the Santa Anna Football team and said we need to play not just ourselves but for Rochelle as well. Rochelle's Coach Phillips wished the best of luck to the Mountaineers as they head into the play-offs.

"I have never been a part of anything like that. I just saw all the fans surrounding the field, and it just felt amazing. I heard the Zephyr coach say heads, I said heads because I was near our coin, and Rochelle's coin landed on tails. I looked at our players and they knew right away we had advanced," said Coach Garcia

The Mountaineers will now travel to May on Friday to take on Lingleville. The game is set to kick off at 7:30pm. Santa Anna is the visiting team for this game.

The Santa Anna Mountaineers would like to wish the best of luck to the Zephyr Bulldogs who will be facing Gordon on Friday as well. The Mountaineers would also like to congratulate the Rochelle Hornets on a tremendous season.

Editor's Note: According to KOXE radio and sixmanfootball.com the Zephyr/Gordon game is on Saturday at 7:30 PM at Hico.

The Lights. The Game.

The Mountaineers are off Friday the 9th of November. The Mountaineers finished up the regular season 9-1 ranked 12th in Division 1 and 20th overall with their only loss coming to the Rochelle Hornets in District 9 Six Man Division 1 Football.

Since the Mountaineers are off the game of the week is Zephyr vs Rochelle at Rochelle starting at 7:30 PM.

If the Hornets win then they will win the district outright and Santa Anna will go to the playoffs in second place.

After that it gets a little more complicated.

Zephyr will have to beat Rochelle by more than twenty points to force a three way tie for first and a coin flip and then it will be odd man out.

The winners will face Gordon or Lingleville who play each other for their District Championship in Lingleville.

Zephyr is favored by 9 points.

Who they have played:

6-3 Zephyr ranked 13th(22nd Overall):
Lost to Milford 40-56
Lost to Oakwood 72-26
Beat Dublin Premiere 88-0
Beat Jonesboro 60-36
Beat Cherokee 72-6
Beat Mullin 62-16
Beat Lometa 60-0
Lost to Santa Anna 40-20
Beat May 38-16

8-1 Rochelle ranked 17th(29th Overall)
Lost to Boerne Geneva 44-88
Beat Cherokee 50-44

Beat Panther Creek 58-17
Beat Lohn 64-0
Beat Blanket 71-30
Beat Lometa 66-46
Beat Santa Anna 78-48
Beat May 66-64

Head on over to Rochelle to watch the Hornets try for their first ever District Championship and a chance for the Mountaineers to make the playoffs!

Mountaineer Football games

The following selections were written by Assistant Coach David Garcia.

Jr. High Football

The Jr. High team finished the year undefeated and the 2012 District Champs. The Mountaineers hosted the Lometa Hornets and came out with a victory this past Thursday night. The Mountaineers were lead by 8th graders Jacob Herrod and Kolbi Escobar who scored several times for the Mountaineers. Defensively, the Mountaineers were lead by Kayden Isbel and Blaine Beale who accounted for several of the defensive stops.

The future of the Mountaineer Football program looks great if the team stays together and works together towards becoming an even better team than what they are already. The athletes will now move on to basketball.

Coach Norris, Adams, and Garcia are extremely proud at the accomplishments of this very talented group of young men.

JV Football

The Mountaineers fall to Blackwell after yet another injury to reserve running back Colton Enriquez. The Mountaineers seemed to be in control into the 3rd quarter, and looked like they would end the season with a win. Things quickly changed when the Mountaineers had to put a lineman in the backfield at running back.

"Itís tough to do what he did, but I am very proud of the work that Pedro Uvalle did for us. He had never played running back, but had to catch on fairly quickly," stated Coach Garcia.

The Mountaineers had a tough season this year, but had to adjust to different positions as injuries played a huge role in the JV season.

Flip of a Quarter

The Mountaineers didnít play many 3rd or 4th quarter games this year, but when they did, the games counted and left many questions unanswered for the Mountaineers who actually finished the regular season this past Friday with a win over Lometa. The Hornets played a tough game and seemed to be playing the spoiler role against the Mountaineers, but once the Mountaineers calmed down and got the bugs out, it was another victory for the varsity team.



The Mountaineers finished the regular season with a record of 9-1, with their only loss coming to Rochelle. Now the Mountaineers must play the waiting game with Rochelle and Zephyr, who play Friday in Rochelle.

The Mountaineers can get into the play-offs if one of a few things happen.
1. Rochelle beats Zephyr outright.
2. If Zephyr does not beat Rochelle by 20.
3. A coin flip. With the coin flip, three coaches flip a quarter, the two teams that land the same side of the quarter, advance to the play-offs.

"No matter what happens, we are extremely proud of the team. They have proved a lot of people wrong. They have proved to themselves that they can play with the best teams in the area. They have proved that they are one of the best teams in the area. They never gave up and continued to get better every day," said the coaches.

Now we wait until Friday.


Catch Up - Part 2

I did make it to a few Pee Wee football games since my grandson Dawson is playing... It took me a little while to get my camera set right from dark to light games but once I did the photos started looking better and here are some of my favorites:

2012 Santa Anna Mountaineer Football

The Santa Anna Mountaineers upset the Zephyr Bulldogs last week by a score of 40-20.

I took almost 800 photos of the four quarter game and here are some of my favorites:




















See the Sports page for the rest!


Jr. High Mountaineers

Contributed
The Jr. High team will host Lometa for the Jr. High District Championship. This past Thursday, the Jr. High Mountaineers traveled to Zephyr and remained undefeated for the season. The Mountaineers were just too much for the Bulldogs. The Bulldogs were big and fast, but the Mountaineers were disciplined on both sides of the ball and it showed. The Mountaineers scored several times and it even allowed for the younger players to get some much needed game time.

The Jr. High team will now host Lometa this coming Thursday. Coach Garcia was able to talk to the Lometa coach and found out that they too have been having an easy time with the teams they have been playing. Both teams are undefeated and it should be a great game. Kick off is scheduled for 6pm in Santa Anna.

JV Team

Injuries continue to plague the JV Team. With both starting running backs still out and starting quarterback Fabian Suarez playing with a high ankle sprain, the Mountaineers fought hard and played against a very good Zephyr JV team. The Mountaineers did not let the score bother them. The JV team was able to put a pretty good drive together with less than a minute to go in the half. The Mountaineers took some notes out of the varsity team and went "no huddle" and were able to score on the last play of the half to push the game into the 3rd quarter. They fought hard, but came out with a loss. The coaches are extremely proud of the "NGU" attitude that the JV team has been able to stick with. They definitely will be a great addition to the varsity team next year.

The JV team may have a game on Thursday as well against Blackwell. Things are up in the air right now, but the chance is 50/50. Please check back daily for a definite answer on the game.

Emotional Overdrive

Zephyr was supposed to run the district this year with a senior heavy team and the top running back in the area. The Mountaineers had other thoughts on the matter. With a week of practice filled with very high emotions, the Mountaineers pulled off the unthinkable. Santa Anna proved why they are indeed a team to be worried about. The Mountaineers gave the Bulldogs their first district loss. Defense was the key in the victory. The boys were swarming to the ball and tackling anything wearing the opposite color. Fumbles were caused, hard hits were put on, and in the end the Mountaineers stayed in the playoff hunt with a victory over the Zephyr Bulldogs.

"It was more than a game this week. Coach Adams, Jed Herrod, and I all have family in the hospital with very serious conditions. All week we spoke of how football can help life and how it relates to life. We took the chance to grow once more as a family. I don't think I have ever experienced the closeness that was brought into practice this week as well as the game. Everyone did their part and it all fell in the right places. Right before the game, the boys dedicated the game to our family members, and I knew then it was going to be a different game. The boys realized it was much bigger than a score or a win. It was about a group of young men, putting it all on the line for a bigger cause. I think I can speak for Coach Adams, Coach Norris and Jed Herrod when I say, we are grateful of everyone, and extremely proud to be Mountaineers," stated Coach Garcia.

The Mountaineers will travel to Lometa on Friday with Playoff hopes still alive. Kick-off is set for 7:30.


Add Hunters for the Hungry to Your Check List

Santa Anna, TX Ė Hunters help local communities each deer season by donating deer to the Texas Hunters for the Hungry program. Last year, hunters donated 152,962 pounds of venison, resulting in more than 600,000 servings. Of that, 15,500 pounds were donated in Coleman County alone.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, one out of every five households in Texas struggles to afford food. Food assistance agencies such as food banks, food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters play an important role in helping families fill the nutrition gap. Obtaining adequate protein is often difficult for low income families and individuals. As a result, venison donations are a favorite with both food assistance providers and the clients they serve as it is low in fat and high in protein.

If you are a hunter, consider adding Hunters for the Hungry to your check list as you prepare for deer season. It is easy to participate: locate a participating meat processor; drop off your tagged, legally harvested white-tail or mule deer; and pay a nominal fee to cover basic processing costs. A receipt is issued for tax purposes. The meat processor grinds the venison into burger for pick-up by a local food assistance provider. This season, Hunters for the Hungry is working with Santa Anna Wild Game Processing in Santa Anna to accept venison donations. To learn more about the program, visit www.tacaa.org/hunters-for-the-hungry or call (800) 992-9767, ext. 506.

Hunters for the Hungry is a program of the Texas Association of Community Action Agencies, Inc. (TACAA).

The FCA Values Our relationships will demonstrate steadfast commitment to Jesus Christ and His Word through Integrity, Serving, Teamwork and Excellence.

From Coach Garcia: It is very exciting. I wanted the athletes here to be able to see the wonderful things that FCA has to offer and what the students can offer to FCA. I was a member of FCA at my high school and really enjoyed it. I have a few meetings in the coming weeks with area and regional directors of FCA to get everything up and running. Any student athlete in Santa Anna from grades 7th through 12th is invited to join FCA. For more information, you may look up Santa Anna FCA on Facebook.
