Athletics are a great way to pay for college and Judson High School senior volleyball player Mykeeta Ussery signed a National Letter of Intent to play and study at Wentworth Military Academy and College. That's in Lexington, Missouri...home of the Dragons. We wish her the best of luck in all she does.
Congratulations to Wagner senior Nyjah Meadows who recently signed with Eastfield College in Mesquite, Texas to play volleyball in the fall. We want to wish her the best of luck in her studies and her spikes! We are proud of you.

Derrick Kindred has been making a lot of tackles for a long time. Ever since he played at Wagner High School he has shown that athletic talent that has caught the eyes of coaches, scouts and of course the fans. He was drafted in the 4th round by the Cleveland Browns. The 5-10 207 pound strong safety had a good combine performance with 4.65 40 yard dash and a 37.5 inch vertical leap. Last year he was second on the team in tackles at TCU his senior year (2015) despite a broken collar bone. He was a First Team All-Big 12 selection and now will play with the pros as a Cleveland Brown. We congratulate him and remember him as a T-Bird not long ago (below) signing to play for TCU.

Dennis Parks as a Judson Rocket
Former Judson Rocket and Rice University receiver Dennis Parks has agreed to an undrafted free agent deal with the Green Bay Packers. The 6-1, 200 pound wide receiver caught 33 passes for 498 yards and 3 touchdowns last season for the Owls. He was an All-Conference USA selection as a freshman at Rice and went on to a very productive college career. Parks recently worked out for the Texans at their local prospect day, but instead was signed by the Packers. We congratulate him as he takes it to the next level as a Packer to the cheering of all those "Cheese Head" fans as they're called. Good Luck.
Dennis Parks as a Rice Owl
It's fun to see our elementary students discover some of the physical abilities and talents they have. The elementary campus P.E. coaches helped the kids discover which events interested them and let them try their hand at them. Events include everything from running the 40 yard dash, 100 m, 200 m and the 4X100 relay to the long jump, the javelin throw and the frisbee throw. As you can see by the pictures the kids had a great time on a beautiful day at Rutledge Stadium.
