Brook Hill Guard 2013: Brook Hill starts Brashear era with 4 home games

BULLARD —  New Brook Hill head football coach Bobby Brashear brings a 28-coaching slate to a Guard program that has experienced a slew of success in the last decade.

If there are Brook Hill fans out there that don't what Brashear looks like, or are not familiar with his style of play they will have ample opportunity to get see Brook Hill's new mentor in action because the guard start the 2013 season off by playing four-straight home games.

After facing Frankston in Week 0, Brook Hill will shut things down for a week, with the team scheduled for an open date on Sept. 6.

The Garrison Bulldogs and the Spring Hill Panthers then come into Herrrington Stadium on Sept. 14 and 21, respectively.

The extended home stand comes to a close the following week when Brook Hill opens TAPPS Division II-District 2 by entertaining T. K. Gorman's Crusaders.

Another favorable aspect of the Guard's schedule is that fact that Brook Hill will play two of its final three games, all district outings at home also.

Parish Episcopal comes in Oct. 26, with the Guard traveling to Tyler to face Grace Community the following week before putting the bow on the regular season on Nov. 8 by hosting Carrollton Prince of Peace.

    To put the Jacksonville Tribe boys soccer team's successful season and deep post season run in perspective, it had been just over three years since any team from Jacksonville had participated in a regional tournament.

    And although the Tribe fell, 2-1, on the scoreboard to Spring Woods on Friday in the Class 4A, Region III semi-final, what this year's group was able to achieve will be remembered long after the painful memories of Friday's match fade away.
