Armadillo defense dominates Longhorns

By Coach Jerod Fikac

The 2018 Armadillos returned home to Rogan Field on a wet night for their second game of the season and came away with a dominating 53-0 win over the Harper Longhorns. The Dillo defense, which was paced by Joseph Watson, Erik Argote, and Sakima Herrera, put in a dominating performance for the second week in a row, holding the Longhorn offense to just 78 total yards.

The defense kept the Harper offense in check all night tallying nine sacks and four turnovers. Risien Shahan had the one interception while also pitching in a fumble recovery. Sakima Herrera and Bryan Reza also got in on the turnover action with each recovering a fumble. Reza’s fumble recovery resulted in six points as he scooped and scored from 45 yards out with a host of Dillos leading the way.

Where do Dilloettes come from?

Did you ever wonder were those Dilloettes come from that have been performing at football games for the last 59 years? If you had been inside the Armadillo Arena this past Saturday morning, you could have witnessed over 25 of Vallenavedothem being born.

The San Saba Dilloette “Dance Darlin” dance camp was host to 27 of the cutest young ladies that our community has to offer. Ranging in age from 4 years to 6th grade, these girls were taught dance moves, hand motions, high kicks and a short routine. The camp ended after several hours of fun-filled training with adorable new “Dance Darlins” performing the routine for their interested friends and family.

Hill Country Naturalist

How to Live in the Country Without Spoiling It

Often, in talks to various groups on the subject of our native habitat, I say there are three forces over which we have very little control but which are decreasing the amount of native habitat in the Hill Country.

The three are: (1) farm and ranch land sold to development {housing projects, shopping centers, schools, parking lots, roads, etc.}; (2) land fragmentation of larger ranches being broken up into many small parcels, thus, giving myself and many others a place to live in the country; and (3) the projected doubling of the state population in the next 30 to 50 years. Economics is obviously the main driver for all of the above.

Happy Herman's Hideaway

Fishing You The Best

Hello wonderful San Saba friends! It’s me Herman. Oh wait, it says Happy Herman’s Hideaway…who else would be writing the column…a random skunk passing by my laptop? I wonder how a skunk would begin an article to you, probably with…:” Hey, if you think your life stinks people of San Saba you should smell mine!” Of course I don’t want to be putting words in a skunk’s mouth, I don’t wish to get near enough to put anything near them! I think they are cute, don’t get me wrong but I like to think they are cute from a safe distance.
