During the last long weekend before fall schedules really start to unfold, there can’t be a better way to relax than a little bit of fishing with family.
On Saturday morning, area children 3-16 years old could participate in the 31st annual Kiwanis Kids’ Fishing Tournament at Creekwood Park in The Woodlands.
“The event’s always great and packed, so they must be doing something well,” Kirk Beverung, father of 11-year-old Logan Beverung, said. “We’ve been doing it at least eight years, and it seems to be getting bigger every year.”

There are probably dozens of 6-yard touchdown runs throughout the state in Week 1.
Jacorey Aleem’s is one he’ll likely never forget. That touchdown run – the first for the Cy-Fair senior tailback since essentially missing all of 2013 with an ACL tear – is the reward after a long year of rehab. It also was the lone score in Cy-Fair’s 9-0 win over The Woodlands to open the 2014 season Friday at the Berry Center.
The Bobcats’ defense punctuated this win, but Aleem’s score is the feel-good story. He overcame what was a slow start to score his first touchdown since Nov. 3, 2012. Aleem tore his ACL against Katy Taylor in the 2013 opener for Cy-Fair. click here for complete story

Friday night lights is back and College Park (0-1) seemed up to the task of taking on the 2013 state-runner up Pearland Oilers (1-0) in their home opener at Woodforest Bank Stadium. College Park won the toss and decided offense was the way to go, and preceded to go on an impressive 12 play, 56 yard drive that saw new starting quarterback, Robert Ferguson, make some impressive plays with his feet. However, the offense stalled near the red-zone, giving Pearland possession and momentum.
“The biggest thing for us going in is they are faster than anybody we’ve played so far,” said College Park head coach, Richard Carson. “That’s why we are playing them. So we can get used to it before we play the teams in our district.”
The star of the contest was Pearland running back, JaColbie Butler, who ran for 210 yards on 21 attempts, to go along with four touchdowns. For College Park, quarterback, Robert Ferguson, led the charge with 102 yards through the air, to go along with 31 yards rushing and a touchdown. Domimic Garcia also had a big night for the Cavaliers, with 111 yards on 19 carries to go along with a score. click here for complete story
Jacorey Aleem waited a long time to score another touchdown – just two months shy of two full years.
Cy-Fair’s standout running back tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee in the first quarter of last season’s opener, then spent the next 12 months working his way back to finishing form. He found it again Friday night. Aleem scored the game’s only touchdown on a 6-yard run in the second quarter, helping the Bobcats grind out a 9-0 shutout against The Woodlands in the opener for both teams at the Berry Center. click here for complete story
