Demarvin Leal is a big reason the Judson Rockets have gone deep into the playoffs this year. He is an anchor on the defensive line and has caught the eye of many college recruiters. He was presented with the official Army All-American jersey in a special ceremony at the Performing Arts Center formally recognizing his selection. 

While he has already signed a national letter of intent to play next year at Texas A&M University, he will be on a big national stage in January when he plays in the Army All-American Bowl in the Alamodome.  The game will be January 5th.  

    

Patriot Debate Student Making Name For Herself

Congratulations to Emmy Henshaw! Emmy. She is a senior at Veterans Memorial High School, and she qualified for the Quarter Finals in Lincoln Douglas Debate at the 2018 Rattle Royal TFA Speech and Debate competition in San Marcos November 30 and December 1. She was 3 and 1 in the preliminary rounds before qualifying for the knockout tournament. This was the first time that Veterans has fielded a team at a TFA tournament, and Emmy is the first student from VMHS to win an award. We are so proud of her. Veterans took nineteen students to compete at the completion in many different speech, debate and theatre competitions.
