THE JESUIT DALLAS STUDENT VOICE AND STUDENT NEWSPAPER SINCE 1942 - DIGITAL SINCE 2010

THE JESUIT DALLAS STUDENT VOICE AND STUDENT NEWSPAPER SINCE 1942

Well, the Cowboys made it back to the divisional round of the NFL Playoffs! Dallas fans could not have been more excited and optimistic heading into this year's postseason. However, their highly-anticipated Super Bowl run was quickly thwarted by the Green Bay Packers, again. The game was not necessarily hinged on one play like in the 2014 matchup (Dez caught it),...
The year is 1945. William Sianis and his goat, Murphy, have just been asked to leave Game 4 of the World Series at Wrigley Stadium. Enraged, Sianis utters a curse declaring the Cubs will never win another World Series. Following this event, the cubs remained without another World Series win, which lead some to believe Sianis' threat. Others blame the lack of...
As the Dallas Cowboys jump to a 2-1 start, many have taken to the argument of who is a better quarterback, Tony Romo or Dak Prescott. Dak, a fourth round draft pick, has proven himself to be a solid replacement for the battle-tested Tony Romo while he recovers from a back injury. The question remains; is it time for...
42-31-10 (92 points). That was the record for the 2014-15 Dallas Stars who failed to make the playoffs. If the 2015-16 Dallas Stars's progression could be described in a phrase, it would be "leaps and bounds" (except for goaltending). The Stars record this year was 50-23-9 (109 points). Good for first in the central division, which is widely regarded the...
In a sea of purple and gold jerseys, a thunderous “MVP” chant filled the buzzing Staples Center as the Laker great took and made his final points in his NBA career on the free throw line. The mixture of absolute exuberance and sadness was palpable throughout the course of the game, but when Kobe Bryant scored his last of...
 2016 has finally reached April, which marks the start of warm weather, the entrance of the home stretch for the school year, and the dawn of a new baseball season. Monday marks Opening Day for much of the MLB, including the Texas Rangers, who take on Seattle at home. After a comeback season in which they conquered their division only...
I'm sure you've thought about it at least once: sitting with a select few of your classmates in front of a backdrop featuring the school logo as you sign a National Letter of Intent while listening to the applause and flashing of cameras. Maybe you've gone as far as picturing yourself on the field, standing in an enormous stadium...
After effortlessly faking a drive, dropping Kawhi Leonard, and pump-faking a three, Stephen Curry steps back and knocks down a contested jumper. This play would have made highlight tapes even if a lesser defender had been guarding Curry, but it was the leading candidate of Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard? The Lebron James stopper Kawhi Leonard? The "NBA's Best All Around Defender" Kawhi...
