Andrew’s class is a really special class. After winning district in track this past spring, they won district in football. This past weekend they made it three in a row by winning our district basketball tournament. They beat Clifton 37-16, Troy 38-36 and Bruceville-Eddy 32-26. They really came together as a team and it was fun to watch. Unselfish play will win ballgames. Here is a video of tournament highlights that I made:
For once, I’m posting a non-personal post on my blog. I’ve been wanting to look at this for awhile, and figured 6 games is enough time to make some observations. Here is a comparison between RG3 and the other first round rookie QBs through 6 games this season:
RG3: 113/161 (70.2%), 1343 yards, 5 TDs, 2 INT, 100.5 passer rating; 55 rushes, 379 yards (6.9 ypc), 6 TDs
Luck: 118/221 (53.4%), 1488 yards, 7 TDs, 7 INT, 72.0 passer rating, 17 rushes, 103 yards (6.1 ypc), 1 TD
Tannehill: 118/198 (59.6%), 1454 yards, 4 TDs, 6 INT, 76.5 passer rating, 19 rushes, 8 yards (.4 ypc), 1 TD, 2 fumbles
Analysis: he takes care of the ball. Look at the TD/INT ratio. He makes smart decisions. Look at that 70.2% completion percentage. Sure, a lot of them are short passes, but he LEADS THE ENTIRE NFL in this stat. His overall play is fantastic. Look at his 100.5 QB rating. He is third behind AARON RODGERS (105.4) AND PEYTON MANNING (105.0) and just ahead of Ben Roethlisberger (99.9), Matt Ryan (98.8) and Tom Brady (97.2). Good company, eh?
Let’s throw Cam Newton’s first 6 games in the mix for comparison’s sake. Supposedly Cam had a monster rookie year, right? Compare his completion percentage, TD/INT ratio and passer rating to RG3. He was a great running QB too, right? Yeah, compare those numbers so far.
Cam: 134/229 (58.5%), 1847 yards, 7 TDs, 9 INT, 78.2 passer rating; 47 rushes, 207 yards (4.4 ypc), 6 TDs
Conclusion: if RG3 stays healthy, LOOK OUT.
I haven’t posted here in a couple of weeks. Frankly, I’m not sure how many people still look at my blog. Regardless, we beat Academy 46-6 and Lago Vista 19-6. We are sitting at 4-0 (2-0 in district).

Andrew had another good game last night, scoring 3 TDs. Here is a video of his highlights:
After sitting out all of last season with a broken clavicle, Andrew finally got to play in a junior high football game this past Thursday. It was a fun game as McGregor beat Reicher 43-8. Andrew had a couple of TDs and played really well. He had 126 yards receiving and split time at QB. Here are some of his highlights:

We had a great time at our 7-on-7 football tournament. We won our first four games a combined 152-0 while holding the opposing teams to ZERO first downs. We played a really good Belton team in the finals and lost 18-6. Admittedly, we played our worst game of the night, but it was a really good tournament overall.
