Dramatic finish in Jimbo Fisher’s first spring game at Texas A&M
 Spring football games are supposed to be show-off scrimmages, not contests that come down to the final seconds to determine intrasquad bragging rights. Then again, Jimbo Fisher was supposed to bring a new attitude to Texas A&M, so why not a new tradition with Maroon and White games? On a chilly Saturday at Kyle Field, the White team, led...

Jimbo Fisher will be front and center at Texas A&M spring scrimmage
 Spring football games always are mostly spectacle. The players will wear uniforms and run out of the tunnel, just like on a fall Saturday. There will be fan events inside and outside the stadium. But no self-respecting coach will ever tip his hand in the spring by having his team show off new plays and formations that they’ve worked...

Spring League ends with games, practices, selfies, handshakes — and hope
 It was almost like the end of a summer camp Thursday night with all the selfies, bear hugs and handshakes. Except it was the conclusion of the two-week Spring League at Kelly Reeves Athletic Complex. More than 150 football players were trying to catch the eye of a pro scout, whether from the NFL or CFL. Johnny Manziel, the former Texas A&M...

Meet Josh Gable, the only Spring Leaguer who never played college ball
 Josh Gable, the one-time pro soccer player, really wants to be a kicker in the NFL. But he basically has no game video to show anyone how good he is. So what do you do to generate attention in lieu of showing off footage of game-winning kicks? You become a trick shot kicker and hope your videos of booming, long-distance field goals go viral...

With eyes on Manziel, Mettenberger hopes teams give him a look, too
 Zach Mettenberger hasn’t played a down of football since the exhibition season in 2016. That was back when the former LSU standout was a backup with the San Diego Chargers.

Another chance? Jefferson hopes Spring League vaults him to NFL or CFL
 The last organized football game Johnny Jefferson played was magical. It came in the Russell Athletic Bowl in December 2015. Jefferson, then a Baylor sophomore, rushed for 299 yards and three touchdowns to propel the Bears to an upset of 10th-ranked North Carolina. Statistically, Jefferson enjoyed the best day of any tailback in the 2015...

NFL hopeful Manziel joins Aggies for another go at pro day
 Johnny Manziel’s pro day Tuesday definitely wasn’t of the rock-star variety. It was short on scripted glitz, but maybe it packed more substance than his first one four years ago. Manziel, the former Texas A&M star quarterback and the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner, was a last-minute addition to Tuesday’s pro-day lineup in Aggieland...

Emotional Bubba Watson celebrates his runaway win at Dell Match Play

Justin Thomas leads way into round of 16 at WGC-Dell Match Play
 Justin Thomas hadn’t fared well in Austin in his previous two trips to the WGC-Dell Match Play, posting only one victory in six tries.

World No. 1, defending Dell champ Johnson stumbles in day of upsets
 It was only a Wednesday, just the opening round of the WGC-Dell Match Play. There still were so many more holes to be played at Austin Country Cub between now and Sunday.

One year later, Jason Day can be focused on golf again, not his mother
 Mentally, Jason Day’s season cratered this time a year ago when he was on the sixth hole of Austin Country Club, playing in the opening round of the WGC-Dell Match Play championship.
