LCMCISD Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Randy Crouch to Retire

Little Cypress-Mauriceville Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Randy Crouch has announced his intentions to retire at the end of the 2020-2021 school year. According to Crouch, “After playing or coaching for 55 years, it’s time. I want to thank Little Cypress-Mauriceville for the opportunity to be the AD and Head Coach for the past twelve years and for the four years I spent as an Assistant Coach. The support here is wonderful.” He also thanked LCM Superintendent Stacey Brister for the leadership that she has provided and is also appreciative of Dr. Pauline Hargrove, who is the retired Superintendent who hired him. Crouch also wants to recognize his wife, Dewanna, who has been so supportive through the years.

Coach Crouch was an Assistant Coach with LCM from 1994-1998, prior to going to WOS as Offensive Line Coach with the Mustangs. He returned to LCM in 2008 as Athletic Director and Head Football Coach for the Battlin’ Bears. “The older you get, you realize how important it is to impact students in the right way, and LCM is great at that,” he said. “I do hope that I am leaving the program better than it was when I got here.” Bears have made the playoffs six of those twelve years under the leadership of Coach Crouch.

Randy Crouch has had numerous awards and recognitions through the years, including being named Coach of the Year by the Southeast Texas Coaches Association. He was also named to the Bulldog Football All-Century Team in August of 2001, honoring the 50 greatest players from the first 100 years of Louisiana Tech football and the 50th Anniversary team along with Terry Bradshaw, Roger Carr, John Causey, and other notable standouts.

Superintendent Stacey Brister had this to say about him. “Coach Crouch has made a tremendous impact on our students, staff, and the community throughout the years. I appreciate all that he has given to our District to better our athletic programs. He has been an outstanding role model for our students and coaching staff. We will miss him and wish him the very best in his retirement.”

Little Cypress Mauriceville has released a new home football game ticket plan.

The highlights of the plan are below.

Season tickets will be reinstated for the 2021 season with the same seating chart from the 2019 season with season ticket holders given the option to renew the same seats they had in 2019. There were 450 season tickets issued for the 2019 season.

  • Battlin’ Bear Stadium will be 100% general admission and be marked according to UIL and Orange County guidelines. Seating will be on every other row and spectators will be responsible
    for social distancing themselves from other groups. Families should not sit in groups larger than ten.
  • The LCM Honey Bears and Battlin’ Bear Band will be moved to seating on the track’s north end zone to free up more seating for spectators and allow for more spacing within their groups.
  • Bands and drill teams from visiting schools will not travel to Battlin’ Bear Stadium for the district games for the 2020 season.
  • No standing room only tickets will be sold.
  • There will be no pass gate for JH/MS /9/JV football players and cheerleaders to enter. All subvarsities must have a ticket to enter the game. This is necessary for capacity limitations.

Orangefield High School Football Games to Be Televised

In an effort to increase the accessibility of high school football games and encourage social distancing across Texas, the UIL will allow live telecasts of regular season football games on Friday nights during the 2020-2021 school year.

Orangefield ISD is partnering with Texan Live to have all of their home games streamed for their fans’ convenience. Texan Live will be working with a number of schools in the area, so there may be a chance that they will cover some of our away games as well.

There is a monthly subscription that goes along with the service. The monthly fee is roughly $10. If you subscribe for three months it will equal the cost of what season tickets would have cost during a normal season.

Bassmaster Elite Series 2020 Returns to Orange

Bassmaster Elite Series 2020 Returns to Orange in 2020

B.A.S.S. officials have announced the schedule for the 2020 Bassmaster Elite Series, a nine-tournament slate that will take the world’s best bass anglers to six states and some of the most storied fisheries in the sport’s history.

For fans who love watching professional anglers catch giant bass, the schedule is likely to be love at first sight.

“This year, we unveiled the mantra ‘Big Bass. Big Stage. Big Dreams.,’” said B.A.S.S. CEO Bruce Akin. “We’ve certainly delivered on that in 2019 — and with the schedule we’ve put together for 2020, we’re ready to take another giant step on that path.

“Fans will have an opportunity to see our anglers compete on some of the best big-bass lakes in America.”

The sixth event on the schedule is known for producing some of the biggest crowds in B.A.S.S. history — the Sabine River in Orange, Texas. The fifth Elite Series event on the 2020 slate will be held at Orange on May 29-June 1 and could challenge the Elite Series fan attendance record of 36,200.

It’ll be the fourth time the Elite Series has visited the Sabine River system — and in three previous visits, the crowds totaled more than 96,000.

For earlier events at the Sabine River, catch rates were somewhat low. But the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department has worked tirelessly to create a zone that is good for both the Orange, Texas, area and anglers. Thanks to those efforts by TPWD, tournament waters for the 2020 event will be expanded to include that new five-county zone.

“The Greater Orange Area Chamber of Commerce is excited to partner with B.A.S.S. to bring the Bassmaster Elite Series to Orange County once again,” said Ida Schossow, president of the Greater Orange Area Chamber of Commerce. “This tournament has brought Orange County waterways to the forefront in the fishing world. The tournament is an economic boost to our community and creates a sense of pride for our citizens.”
