Former Weatherford Kangaroo Kapron Lewis-Moore is back with the Baltimore Ravens.
After being cut by the Chicago Bears just before this season, the defensive lineman is back with the team that drafted him in 2013.
Lewis-Moore was signed to the Baltimore practice squad earlier this week. He spent four years with the Ravens after graduating from Notre Dame.
The Chicago Bears waived Weatherford High School graduate Kapron Lewis-Moore Tuesday, four days ahead of the official cut-down day for the NFL.
Lewis-Moore was signed by Chicago in the offseason after leaving his original NFL team, the Baltimore Ravens.
The defensive lineman was a standout for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, starting in the 2013 BCS National Championship Game. He has fought through several injuries, including year-long absences due to knee and achilles heel problems.
Beau Burrows has been promoted. The former Weatherford High School pitcher is moving from single-A to double-A in the Detroit Tigers organization.
Burrows will now play for the Erie SeaWolves and will start for Erie Tuesday night.
So far this season, the 20-year-old has posted an impressive 1.23 ERA with 62 strikeouts and 11 walks.
Burrows was the April Player of the Month in the Florida State League, going 3-0 and posting a 1.30 ERA for the Lakeland Flying Tigers, the Tigers’ high-A affiliate.
The Weatherford Kangaroo baseball team beat Mansfield 3-2 in the deciding third game of their bi-district series at Raymond Curtis Field Saturday afternoon.
Zach Swain earned the win in relief, going four innings and allowing four hits, no runs and one walk with four strikeouts.
The Roos are bi-district champs and will await their next opponent in a series to be played next weekend.
