The Silver Spike trophy was the brainchild back in 2001 by sports writer Jeff Wood of the Van Alstyne Leader and Howe graduate Monte Walker. The winner of the Howe and Van Alstyne football rivalry receives a silver railroad spike, mounted on a three-foot trophy to keep in their trophy case for an entire year. Howe has yet to have it since its creation. The tall and heavy trophy features the silver spike which symbolizes the growth that the Houston and Texas Central railway brought to both towns in the early years of their existence. Not soon after the towns were formed, they started playing football against each other. But those early years prior to 1920 formation of the UIL do not formally count and Howe didn’t even field a UIL sanctioned team until 1935.

Howe first played Van Alstyne on October 24, 1941 which the Panthers won, 31-7. The Spike was created before the 2001 season and that was the year Van Alstyne started the current 9- game winning streak over Howe. It also happened to be the same time that Van Alstyne outgrew Howe in enrollment numbers due to the Georgetown edition in their community. Before the current winning streak, Van Alstyne led the series, 25-17-2 but now have double the amount of Howe’s wins thanks to the recent stretch. Howe’s longest winning streak versus the Panthers was four games from 1977-1980. When the trophy was originated in 2001, then Van Alstyne Head Coach Randy Matthews told the Van Alstyne Leader, “Because of the closeness of the two towns and what this rivalry means to so many people, I hope everybody will be up for this game and prepared to play. When you have a game like this with so much emotion, there’s always big plays involved.”

The Spike was is akin to Sherman and Denison’s Battle of the Axe which Walker was a radio broadcaster for those games from 1994- 2003 and television broadcaster in 2008. “The community involvement and the electricity that comes with that Sherman Denison Battle of the Axe is so impressive and Howe and Van Alstyne had the same rivalry, but on a smaller scale. We were able to work with those in Van Alstyne back in 2001 to share cost of the trophy and make this something special. However, it won’t be truly special until it comes to Howe’s trophy case.” said Walker.

Howe at Pottsboro 2017



It is game number 750 in Howe Bulldogs history.  Howe has an overall record of 381-344-24 in 74 seasons.  Howe has lost six straight games for the first time since losing seven in a row in 2012.  The Dogs are 0-5 for the first time since 2005.  The 2005 team started 0-8 and finished 1-9.

The bad news:  Howe is averaging only 10.40 points per game on offense and allowing 35.60 points per game.

The good news:  None of those numbers matter because district play starts tonight with Pottsboro (3-2) who were hit hard by graduation.

The Cardinals are still led by their fantastic quarterback Hunter Watson and their great head coach Matt Poe.

The Howe vs. Pottsboro series began November 3, 1972 with a 21-0 Bulldogs win at Bulldog Stadium.  Since then, Pottsboro now holds a 18-10-1 advantage in the series.  The Bulldogs have lost the last six contests versus Pottsboro.

No panic in H-town

The Bulldogs might be 0-3 for the first time since 2005, but no Howe team has ever faced an early-season schedule as this 2017 team has.  The Dogs led off the season with Class 3A-2 number one ranked Gunter and most recently were chewed up by Class 2A’s number one ranked Muenster.  Sandwiched in between was a game against what appears to be a three or four deep playoff team in Bowie that Howe gift wrapped with four turnovers.

Did graduation hit Howe hard?  Yes, but there are still lots of tools in the toolbox for Howe to regain momentum and confidence headed into district play.  A big test will take place tonight versus Class 4A-1 Quinlan (3-0) who is no pushover.  The Panthers return their quarterback, Linus Beierschmmitt, from a year ago and plenty of size and speed to go along with him.

Student Body Advantage

Quinlan has 775 students in high school compared to Howe’s 329.  In a number’s game, Howe has 82 junior and senior boys to choose from, whereas Quinlan allows for 194.  That’s 112 more kids available to play football than in Howe.  Despite the alarming student body advantage, Howe won a year ago, 44-13 in Quinlan.  But Quinlan is better and Howe is rebuilding.

2015:  13-2
2016:  11-2

Howe is 0-2 for the first time since 2005.  The Bulldogs are coming off a 37-14 loss to Bowie in which they fumbled and flagged their way from hopes of victory.  Howe has scored 26 points on the season and has allowed 87.  Head Coach Zack Hudson is now 29-21 in Howe.

It is the first time since 2014 that the ‘Dogs have gone consecutive games under 200 yards rushing (vs. Gunter 165 yards, vs. Pottsboro 189 yards).  It is the first time since the beginning of 2015 and the opening game of 2016 that Howe has had back-to-back games of under 300 yards (West Rusk, 295 yards; Gunter 221 yards).

Howe’s freshman quarterback Cirby Coheley has attempted 31 passes in the first two games which are two less than the entire 13-game season a year ago.  His 11 completions are only three behind the 2016 season total.  Howe threw one touchdown pass in 2016; Coheley threw his first of the season on the first drive versus Bowie.
