CHS alumnus Moore returns ‘home’ to lead Falcon baseball program

New Channelview High School Head Baseball Coach John Moore

New Channelview High School Head Baseball Coach John Moore has found his way back home.

The 1998 alumnus and standout athlete for the Falcon football and baseball team served as a varsity assistant at CHS from 2004-2009 before becoming the first head coach at Bastrop ISD’s Cedar Creek High School in 2010. Moore established himself as a winning coach, guiding his teams to the playoffs the past three years, which included a state-ranked squad last year.

Moore was happy as coach of Cedar Creek and had thoughts of a long-term career in Central Texas. However, the opportunity he had dreamed about presented itself – a chance to lead the Channelview Falcons baseball team.

“We built a great program from the ground up at Cedar Creek and we were really hitting our stride,” Moore said. I could have stayed there for a long time, but then I heard about the opening here in Channelview. It was the only job that could make me turn my head. After giving it a lot of thought, I knew my heart was leading me back home.”

With his family still living in the Channelview area, Moore has remained connected with the community and his alma mater.

Falcons control playoff destiny in 21-6A finale

The passing game and also the running game of Channelview quarterback Jalen Hurts will put La Porte to the test in Friday’s playoff-deciding game. Hurts has run for 854 yards and scored over 20 touchdowns on the year, like this one he scored against Deer Park.

The passing game and also the running game of Channelview quarterback Jalen Hurts will put La Porte to the test in Friday’s playoff-deciding game. Hurts has run for 854 yards and scored over 20 touchdowns on the year, like this one he scored against Deer Park.

One win – and they’re in.

The Channelview Falcons last regular season game could not come in more dramatic fashion. A victory over the La Porte Bulldogs will lift the Channelview Falcons to their first playoff berth in over 20 years. However, a loss would eliminate the Falcons, who are one of four teams vying for three remaining post-season berths in District 21-6A.

North Shore is sitting alone in first place with a 4-1 record, while Channelview, Deer Park and La Porte all have 3-2 records going into the final week. Beaumont West Brook defeated Port Arthur Memorial to give the Bruins a 3-3 slate and some needed help to clinch a playoff spot – which moves the spotlight solely on the Falcons game against La Porte at 7 p.m. Friday at Ray Maddry Memorial Stadium.

Although the Falcons handed North Shore its only district defeat, it is Channelview’s losses to Deer Park and West Brook that make Friday’s an all-or-nothing contest. A Channelview win makes the West Brook loss a distant memory, but a win by La Porte moves the Bruins into the postseason since they had defeated Channelview.

Earlier this season, Channelview Head Coach Averion Hurts remarked that the district playoff race could go down to the wire.

51st Annual Livestock Show & Sale: Channelview FFA Livestock Show grows in size and scope

Grand champion Steer shown by Colton Taylor

The Channelview FFA held its 51st annual Livestock Show at the Allen Hall Fairgrounds in Channelview on April 2nd through 5th. The community event highlights projects from the members of the Future Farmers of America and the 4-H Club. Students compete for thousands of dollars in scholarships through the show and auction of livestock projects.

The FFA has been a part of the Channelview ISD educational landscape since the mid 1960s. Over the last 50 years, the FFA’s livestock show has grown in both size and scope.

“In the early days, everything happened under one large event tent,” said Allen Hall, retired Channelview agricultural sciences teacher, director of vocational education, and director of transportation (1965-1998). “The first one I helped with was 30 ft by 60 ft, and was set up behind the old high school.”

Channelview’s student grabs spotlight, prize calf at Houston Rodeo Scramble

Channelview High School sophomore Yvette Leos hangs on tight to a calf during the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s Calf Scram- ble at Reliant Stadium recently. Leos wasn’t able to hang on to this calf, but ended up grabbing another one to take to the winner’s circle.

Channelview High School sophomore Yvette Leos hangs on tight to a calf during the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s Calf Scramble at Reliant Stadium recently. Leos wasn’t able to hang on to this calf, but ended up grabbing another one to take to the winner’s circle.

As she stepped into the dirt arena at Reliant Stadium, Yvette Leos looked up in amazement at the thousands of spectators and bright lights of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

She and 30 others took their place in the spotlight – a 3-acre spotlight, that is. Their objective: catch one of 15 calves and bring it back to the center of the arena. Her eyes watched carefully at the starter’s hat. As his hat dropped, she took off in a full sprint with her sights on catching a calf.

It was a task she truly took by the tail. However, the elusive calves had other ideas.

“On my first few attempts, I grabbed them by the tail and got dragged a good 10 yards. Then, on another attempt, I got kicked in the head to the point my ear was bleeding. I never felt a real headache until that moment,” said Leos, a Channelview High School sophomore and first-year Future Farmers of America member.

Calf scramble committee members tried to convince her to go to seek first aid, but Leos said, “I kept running away from them because I was determined I was going to catch a calf – nothing was going to stop me.”

In what Leos described as the “longest field ever,” she grabbed hold of the neck of a calf, fastened a halter on, and guided the animal into the square. “I was exhausted, but it was exciting to see the committee member’s flag go up as I pulled the calf across the line, she said. “Words cannot really explain how amazing it felt.”

The Spring Break holiday was not the only reason that some Channelview ISD teachers had huge smiles on their faces.

With the sounds of the Channelview High School band vibrating through the hallways and a crowd of people with noisemakers leading the way, the Channelview ISD Education Foundation’s “Surprise Patrol” presented Innovative Teaching Grants to educators on several campuses on Friday, March 7.

Foundation board members and donors, school administrators, CHS band members, Channelettes and cheerleaders traveled by bus to campuses, presenting more than $16,000 in grants to teachers throughout the district.

Funds for the grants came from private donations from business and community members, as well as various individuals. The Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization that benefits Channelview ISD students and staff by supporting activities not funded by tax dollars through the regular school budget. In the past two years, the Foundation has given over $38,000 in grant funding to educators in the district.
