The county rivalry has come and gone. The Indians knew they had a battle going up against defending state champs, and the Coyotes came out on top. It’s hard to believe for many of us, but the game of football is such a small thing in the game of life. The game doesn’t define us as humans. Just ask the coach whose wife is battling cancer, or the coach whose child has been given days to live, or the athlete whose been told he can never play again. I know we all want to win, but we must remember that it’s just a game and life goes on after that final buzzer rings.Congratulations to the peewee teams on their performance at Lometa on Saturday. The 3rd and 4th graders defeated Santa Anna 20-0. Christopher scored the team’s first touchdown . With 3:02 left in the second quarter, Christopher ran in his second TD of the game.

The Hornets squeaked by to win 13-12. I would like to commend our coaches and players for their sportsmanship.
