Texans

Coach: Earl McMillan

4/23/2020   SILENCE OF THE  BOARDS

An eerie sound is coming from Coach EMAC’s garage as the Texans home field is silent as week #7 of the Covid-19 crises continues. Covid-19 has caused the Texans’ camp to silence everything. When this whole stay-at-home edict was implemented, neither Coach EMAC nor his team thought it would last this long. Patience and perseverance have gotten the Texans this far but now rest is the mandate for the entire organization. When what you love is the continual humming of the vibration of your team’s field, it is hard on morale when that field is silent for an extended period of time. When this rest period is finally over, Coach EMAC and the team will gear up for a slugfest with whoever’s on the other side of the field. Until then, silence may not be golden, but it is what is needed at this time.

4/16/2020 – COVID-19 FEVER

Six weeks after our last gameday, the Texans are getting ready for whenever the next game will be played.  The players are getting restless with nothing but free time on their hands. With each passing day, the team is being diligent by staying focused on the task ahead. That task is to finish the season strong by taking down every opponent they face through the playoffs. Since this is Coach EMAC’s final season, the team is looking to get the “CHIP” that has eluded him these 20 years.

By keeping his team in small groups to eliminate the spread of the virus, Coach EMAC wants a healthy squad to accomplish the task before them. And as this virus continues  to ravage our state, our nation, our world, the Texans have set their resolve to continue pushing through so they will be ready to crack plastic and come out victorious whenever the restrictions are lifted.

4/6/2020 – TEXANS REVAMPING

After a horrible game vs the Eagles, and the stay-at-home orders from the governor of Texas,  the Texans have taken this down time period to revamp their offense and defense.  Coach EMAC was not pleased with the team’s inability to move the ball on offense nor their inability to slow down the other team’s  offense especially the passing game.

So keeping with their plan to limit the number of players on the field, the defense have their sessions on Tuesday (D-Line), Thursday (LBs) & Saturday (Secondary).  The offense gears up on Monday (QB & Backs), Wednesday (QB & Receivers) & Friday (O-Line). This allows each squad to put in their time to optimize efficiency and reduce risk of contamination.

Continuing to improve his team to eliminate further letdowns, Coach EMAC is preparing them to succeed in all conditions facing them in the future.

Texans on lockdown – 3/14/2020
Since the CoronaVirus has been deemed a pandemic, the Texans organization has been put on self quarantine. This comes on the heels of our nation, all sports, all gatherings have suspended activity for the next 2 weeks according to Coach EMAC. This is a precautionary measure as no team members or the coach nor his family is affected at this time. Here’s  hoping the rest of the EF community are taking precautions to ensure safety for all.

Texans vs Ravens/Rams – 3/9/2020

Opening day of the 2020 LAEFL 20TH season had the Texans hosting the Rams while their stadium is still under construction. Not only the stadium, but the Rams used a substitute team (Ravens) to face the Texans. Once the game began the Texans used a strong running game to take a 7-0 lead. Ravens struck back with 60+ TD run to trail 7-6. The Texans regrouped  and controlled the clock and the game by adding three more TDs to win 28-6.
Texans at Eagles
The news regarding the turf in Lincoln field (Eagles  home) is not exaggerated. The Texans experienced  that on their first possession when 3 receivers lost their footing causing the Texans to punt. The Eagles had no footing issues and was able the move the ball on the ground and through the air as they soared to a 41-12  victory.
