Down on the Farm

The Columbia Football season still isn't over if you consider the fact that several incoming freshmen are still playing in their high school playoffs.

One of them is DB Ben Mathiasmeier from Cinco Ranch HS in Katy, Texas. In Cinco's 34-17 win in the Texas Division II quarterfinals Saturday, Mathiasmeier had 13 tackles, two of them for a loss, and a pass break up.

Cinco Ranch are the underdogs in the state semifinal this weekend against Cibolo Steele HS. But the winner gets to go to the state championship at AT&T Stadium.

Incoming QB Josh Bean didn't advance deep into the playoffs with his Hinsdale Central HS (Illinois) team, but he had a transformative senior season that earned him All State honors.

Jake, any reason why we had a flurry of verbal commits as of around two months or so ago but now they have as far as I can tell come to a screeching halt? The coaches are tweeting about home visits but I haven't seen much else. And how do we think we compare to last year at this time in terms of numbers and 2 or 3 star guys? My recollection is that some of those commits came rather late. PS, I still can't understand why Rea wasn't D POY.

They will have to get used to a 10 game schedule. I'd be interested in seeing an updated freshman class list.

Great piece by Rea in today's Spec.
