Final Four For the Ages

BROWNWOOD—Playing in an historic stadium, named for one of Texas’ high schools’ greatest coaches, the San Saba Armadillos enjoyed making their own history, December 6th, with a 31-17 win over De-Leon in the Class 2A, Division I, Region finals.

Head Coach Jerod Fikac, in a pulsating postgame address to his team, told them no football squad in school history had reached the state semifinals. That’s where this 14-0 bunch has landed. New Deal High, also unbeaten, and near Lubbock, is next up on Friday night at Shotwell Stadium—another gridiron shrine—in Abilene.

“The defense and the offensive line,” Fikac said, “have carried us all year, although they don’t get all the glory.”

Over Time, it’s the Dillos!

The San Saba Armadillos, who score more points than any of those Big 12 offensive powerhouses, needed 62 to beat Celeste, 62-56, in double overtime, November

30. The Dillos’ 13th win of the season moved them to the Region finals against DeLeon, Thursday, December 6th, at historic Gordon Wood Stadium in Brownwood.

San Saba needed a 21-point fourth quarter to get the contest with the Blue Devils into OT. And all eight of Eli Salinas’ touchdowns to remain unbeaten. It was Salinas who scored the game winner, but Carter Turner knocked down a Celeste pass to preserve the victory.

2018 Annual Angels Unaware Gifts

This is your call to help make Christmas a little better for some children in need by supporting the 2018 Angels Unaware program sponsored by the San Saba County Child Welfare Board (CWB). Shortly after Thanksgiving, members place the Elsie Millican Memorial Christmas tree in the atrium of the Arrowhead Bank building in San Saba decorated with little paper angel Christmas ornaments. Each ornament is numbered and has the age (up to sixth grade), gender, and sometimes the request of need of an anonymous child. A gift price limit of $35.00 was set to make this giving equitable and affordable.
