    Sincere Multi-tasks at Wide Receiver

    For a player listed as wide receiver on the roster sheet, SHSU sophomore Richard Sincere holds a bit more responsibility when he’s on the field.

    Sometimes, the coaching staff might line Sincere up in the backfield where he’s most comfortable, often using his quarterback instincts to read opposing defensive schemes.

    Other times, Sincere lines up at wide out, where he is still a work in progress. But the most dangerous part of his arsenal is something the coaches can’t teach – explosiveness…

    Bearkats Roll Over Lamar 66 – 0

    One Game At A Time

    It’s back to business as usual for the Bearkats.

    After getting a little time to enjoy the big win over McNeese State last Saturday, Sam Houston now has its attention squarely fixed on Lamar today.

    “Against McNeese, that was a real good game. We didn’t have a whole lot of good history against them going in,” Bearkats cornerback Bookie Sneed said following a chilly walk-through practice on Thursday.

    ‘Kats React to Big Win

    In a place where Sam Houston has endured far more agony than jubilation over the years, the seventh-ranked Kats took it to McNeese State and walked out of “The Hole” with yet another dominant performance from start to finish.

    Sam Houston, which had previously won only one once (1999) in Lake Charles, La. in 12 tries, beat up the Cowboys and never relented, cruising to a 38-14 blowout Saturday night…

    Bearkats Defense Continues to Make a Name for Itself

    It’s hard to keep a good thing quiet for long and with one impressive performance after another against some solid teams, the Bearkats defense has made a name for itself that speaks very loudly.

    Coming into the season, the Kats wanted to be the best defense in the Southland Conference from the defensive line all the way to the secondary. In doing so, Sam Houston have put together a squad that is, statistically, one of the best in the country….

    Sophomore QB the Engine Keeping the Train Moving

    The Bearkats are a different football team with sophomore Brian Bell at quarterback. That was evident Saturday when Bell returned to action against Stephen F. Austin.

    Bell was sidelined in last week’s win over UTSA due to concussion-like symptoms, but returned healthy against SFA. The young quarterback gave a solid performance, completing 16-of-23 passes for 214 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Bearkats’ 45-10 blowout victory….
