His days are filled with good works
A typical day for Jake Rowe goes something like this:
Up at 8 a.m. Reads from the Bible. But only if he really gets up at 8. Lazarus rising from the dead had nothing on a college student rising before noon. From 9 til noon, classes at Tarleton State, where Rowe is a junior majoring in history and contemplating a career in the ministry. Noon to 2, works out or watches film. Lunch, too. Maybe a little face time with his girlfriend, if he can work her in. Maybe not, if she reads this. At 3, football practice.
After dinner, the schedule depends on what day it is. On Tuesdays nights, Rowe attends a ministry for college athletes. Wednesdays, it's a smaller ministry tailored for a few teammates. Thursdays, it's a whopper, 250 to 300 kids of all types hanging out in a renovated airplane hangar, listening to Christian bands and speakers. From 10 until midnight or 1 a.m. most nights, he studies.
On Saturdays, Rowe is a 6-3, 230-pound defensive end for the Texans, contenders in the Lone Star Conference. Sundays he spends at Rocky Point Baptist Church in Stephenville.
Monday and Friday nights apparently are up for review. Anything else, Jake?
Hottest brand going?
West Texas A&M head football coach Don Carthel on Saturday night proclaimed his Buffs as the "hottest team" in the Lone Star Conference. It would be difficult to argue with that.
The Buffs have won three in a row - only Tarleton State can equal that run - and it isn't like the Buffs have been playing cupcakes.
WT has beaten Eastern New Mexico (which entered the Oct. 10 game with the best offense in Division II, at least on paper); former No. 1 and previously undefeated Abilene Christian (besting the Wildcats on their turf Oct. 17) and knocking off a 6-2 Angelo State squad Saturday night in its home finale at Kimbrough Memorial Stadium.
"I'm really proud of these guys. They have overcome so much adversity and they keep working and keep plugging," Carthel said. "It is a tribute to them and their work ethic to see them get some satisfaction out of this season."

KINGSVILLE, TX--It was a homecoming for the ages Saturday night at Javelina Stadium, as the Javs' Fred "Hollywood" Winborn broke legendary running back Johnny Bailey's single rushing mark in A&M-Kingsville's 38-31 win over Eastern New Mexico.
LSC picture coming into focus, but big games still left to play
Four teams began Saturday tied for the overall lead in the Lone Star Conference football race. Now, there are only two — Tarleton State University and Texas A&M-Kingsville — with two games left in the regular season.
No. 11 Tarleton State beat No. 9 Abilene Christian University 13-6 in Stephenville to knock the defending LSC champion Wildcats out of first place, and No. 14 Kingsville held off Eastern New Mexico 38-31 to remain at the top with the Texans. ngelo State, the other team that began the day tied for the LSC lead, was hammered 43-15 by West Texas A&M in Canyon.
There’s still no telling how the LSC race will play out. Kingsville plays ACU in a must-win game for both teams on Saturday at Shotwell Stadium. The loser will likely miss the cut for the NCAA playoffs. The Javelinas finish at home against Angelo State. Tarleton State still must go to Angelo State on Saturday, then finish at home with West Texas A&M — probably the hottest team in the LSC.
