Armadillos claim District 7-2A Championship

By Coach Jerod Fikac

The San Saba Armadillos knew what was at stake on Friday Night. Win and you’re the district champions also capping of a 10-0 regular season which hasn’t been done in 27 years. With that riding on the line the Armadillos used a swarming defense and a stout rushing attack to earn a 62-12 victory over the DeLeon Bearcats.

It was a special night as the seniors were celebrated before the game, the stands were full by game time, and the Dillos played some of their best football of the season. The Armadillos fell behind early as DeLeon scored the first points of the game going up 6-0. That was about all the offense the Bearcats would see the rest of the night as the Armadillo defense found its footing and held the Bearcats to just 209 yards of total offense with 137 coming through the air, 72 on the ground and just 12 total points.

Coyotes win 17th straight District Championship

Coyotes defeated Rochelle 75-22 to claim their 73rd District win! The last time our Coyotes lost a District game was Oct. 26th, 2001! An amazing record that hundreds of Coyote players have built.

So, on to the playoffs for our Coyotes, a very familiar place for them. Our Coyotes will face an old District foe, the Brookesmith Mustangs. This will be the first ever “playoff” meeting between these two schools.

Our Coyotes own the all-time series between the two, leading (26-2). The last time Brookesmith defeated our Coyotes was a mere 33 years ago. The year was 1985! The internet was still 5 years away from being launched!

So how do these teams stack up today? Our Coyotes are averaging 57 ppg on offense and allowing 23 ppg on defense, while the Mustangs are scoring 38 ppg on offense and giving up 28 ppg on defense. The only 2018 common opponent for both teams was the Evant Elks. Brookesmith lost to them (34-7) while our Coyotes beat them (71-22).

LCRA awards $2,800 grant to San Saba First Responders

The San Saba County First Responder Organization will be able to purchase medical supplies thanks to a $2,800 community development grant from the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA). The Community Development Partnership Program grant will allow the organization to purchase medical kits and oxygen delivery systems to provide early medical care and support while patients wait for EMS to arrive. Chris Perry, San Saba County First Responder Organization coordinator, said there is one ambulance on call for all of San Saba County, but help may be more than an hour away if the ambulance has already been called out or has taken a patient to a hospital in another county

. "Early medical care is critical for a patient's survival and recovery," Perry said. "This grant will help us serve our community better. Organizations like this are becoming more important as rural medical care is becoming harder and harder to come by.
