We're On A Roll! The 2016 JISD Bike Rodeo

The 2016 Judson ISD Bike Rodeo was a huge success at Rutledge Stadium.  Wow...we have some awesome riders out there!  This event is such a good tool to encourage kids to get out there and be physical and get that heart pumping, but it also is a great way to teach safety.  We appreciate everyone who participated...especially those who helped get those riders where they needed to be and to calm a few butterflys that were floating around some tummys before they hopped on their bike.  A big thank you to Candy Tanner who organized this event. Below are the winners.

SA's ESPN Player Of The Week: Rocket Julon Williams

After running for a touchdown and throwing for another in the big game against Austin Lake Travis, Judson High School quarterback Julon Williams was selected as the ESPN High School Football Player of the Week.  Julon has been a starter since his freshman year playing his role as quarterback and helping his team to the last two State Semi-Final games.  He has picked up where he left off last year. In the game against the Cavaliers, Julon ran 16 yards for a TD and threw for a 36-yard TD pass to Sincere McCormick with roughly a minute and a half to go in the game.  The Judson defense sealed the deal after that stopping Lake Travis near the 50 on downs.  Congratulations to Julon for this recognition.
