We moved to Tolar in 2002 with our youngest son, Cory, but I had lost interest in high school football because of the disparity between the oldest and youngest son's ages, 14 years, and just being very busy. My interest was re-kindled with his very first carry as RB against Hico when he was in the 7th grade, 82 yard TD run. I've been hooked ever since then. Even though he graduated last year I plan on making as many games as possible, all of them if I can. This looks like a great forum and I'm happy that I can participate. Thanks.

Please forgive Cottontop he was on retreat this past weekend and is a bit sleep deprived. At least that is the excuse I am using for him since I know I still have not recovered from the lack of sleep while on retreat!!!

Welcome aboard Falcon4life96 - I remember LF as they played our district opponent Petrolia in the second round of the playoffs in 2001 in a tough loss 27-20.

Panthernation wrote:Raised in Waco and moved to Mart. I thought watching the bigger schools was fun, but boy was I wrong. Moving to Mart showed me that the ONLY thing on Friday night is high school football. I'm loving it more and more every year as my 3 boys are growing up in Mart. My oldest is a senior this year (and plays for Mart) and i have 11 year old twin boys that are eager to follow in their big brothers footsteps.

I graduated from Hawley High School (class of 09) and played football for the Bearcats. I continue to follow high school football very closely..mainly Hawley but also Jim-Ned because of my wife. Recently left the Air Force and going to school to get my teaching certificate. I love high school football and really love to talk about it.

State in baseball but we regulary missed the playoffs in football with Celina and Pilot Point in our district. Moved out to Hamlin junior year graduated 01 and thoroughly enjoyed beating up on our old 8-2a district. Anson, Hawley, Haskell and Stamford. Have a 7th grade son who plays all sports so excited to get back into following Hamlin more closely. My 3 girls arent far behind so the next 8 years will envolve a lot of Hamlin athletics!
Welcome MA!Mowdy Ag wrote:Born and raised in Refugio during the town's heyday (population was ~5400 then). My claim to fame is being born in the same room as Nolan Ryan - whoohoo! Attended the Bobcats' first state final (we were 3A when 4A was top classification) vs Lubbock Estacado in '68 as a freshman in HS - yeah, I'm old. ...been a HS football fan ever since. I moved away from Refugio many years ago but I've been fortunate enough to attend seven of their eight finals and all four of the wins. Attended and graduated A&M during the Bellard years so saw some pretty good football there too. Still follow the Aggies with a sense of optimism (at least early each season). Wife (another Refugio alum) and both kids graduated from A&M along with the in-laws and their daughter so we have a maroon tint around here. Spent a career with two oil & gas majors in Corpus, New Orleans, and Houston. Love to hunt and fish. Now retired and hoping to move from the Houston area to the hill country soon.
Really like this site and the way the mods handle things.
