Big ups to my nephew Matt Anderson who plays football for my high school Alma Mater, the Industrial Cobras. He made the front page of the Victoria Advocate sports section with his performance Friday night against Halletsville. Matt is shown making a tackle here.

Matt has been a standout on defense since he moved to the district and they are finally starting to take advantage of his talent on the offensive side of the ball. If Industrial would do anything other than run the ball straight up the middle every play, they might have a playoff team, but it appears that they will come up short of that goal this year. Matt is just a sophomore this season, so maybe the coach will get brave next year and open up the offense a bit. Way to go Matt!
