Angleton Texas Sports

Jermichael Finley started his football career as a running back when he was in high school with the Texas Longhorns. He dominated in the same role - of all - that his older brother had played not long ago. Along the way, Diggs collected postseason awards, totaling 1,000 yards rushing and 2,500 receiving, and achieved a rare feat in Texas 4A football, ranging from quarterback to safety and resignations.

Angleton is third in the Texas State 4A standings, just two points behind the top three teams. The fourth will likely play against Seven Lakes-Cinco Ranch, which should have played last week but had to postpone the game for December 4 at Legacy Stadium.

With one game remaining, the Falcons can move into second place with a win over Mayde Creek on Friday night. Katy improved to 4-1 in District 19-6A and moved into second place after a 63-7 defeat by Morton Ranch. The win takes Katy into the postseason for the first time since the 2012-13 season and the third time in school history. Tompkins finished with four touchdowns, overcoming a 14-point deficit to beat May de Creek and improve to 5-0 in the District 19-6 and 6-2 overall.

The Rams led by 14 points in the first half and tied it at 14-14 before an interception return by Colby Hurdle set up a 35-point run by Tompkins.

The Falcons forced four turnovers and scored two touchdowns in the 56-21 victory over the Rams. The Panthers took the lead in the third quarter on a touchdown pass from Paetow to Tompkins with seven seconds left. In the first half, the Tigers scored an interception by Shepherd Bowling that was returned for a touchdown and a fumble that Colton Cable returned to score on the opening drive of the second half. Paatow led 10 plays with a 75-yard touchdown drive and a pass to D'Angelo Williams that ended the game at 8: 30.

It wasn't so long ago that Jammer ran around Angleton's side room, scoring big goals, playing multiple positions on offense and returning kicks. Guys would throw the ball pretty hard and he would hold it in his hands, "Jummer said.

When he was 4 or 5 years old, his best friend Eric Davis threw the ball at him and he forgot it when he grew up. At the time, coaches in Angleton's district called the 6-foot-8, 190-pound junior the best player on the field.
