For Love Of The Game - The 2018 JEF Football Camp

Football has been a great tradition in Judson ISD for a long time. The quality and competition through the years speak volumes about it. The sport affords many teachable lessons about the game and about character as well as perseverance.  The Judson Education Foundation each year sponsors a football camp for students that in years past has been held at Rutledge.  Well, this year it was at Wagner High School's practice facility and it was a great experience for the kids and the staff.  Almost 200 kids attended the camp and received good solid football instruction along with plenty of water, shade, snacks and of course, lots of fun.

Judson Baseball Standout Picks School

If you have even casually checked out the high school baseball box scores over the last couple of years, the name Holiday should be familiar. Caimyn Holiday has been one of the most versatile baseball players to come out of Judson in a long time.  He has excelled in virtually any position he's assigned on the field and has shown that his bat speaks for itself as well.  In a recent signing ceremony at Judson High School, Caimyn signed his intent to attend and play baseball at Mary Hardin Baylor University next year.  He led the Rockets to a 15-8 record, 8-6 in district play and finished the season batting .351 with 3 home runs, 15 RBIs, and 21 runs scored.  He swiped 12 bases and as a pitcher, he went 7-1 with an ERA of 2.73 with 46 strikeouts...including a no-hitter against Roosevelt.  

 

He will take his talent, work ethic and leadership to Belton where MHBU is located and use it to further his education.  Caimyn is also a great student, ranked in the top 6% of his class. He also earned Honorable Mention All-State Choir 2016-17. He wants to pursue a degree in Mass Communications with an emphasis in sports broadcast journalism.  He is the son of Laurie and Tony Holiday. Good luck to this young man as he takes his Rocket Pride to the next level.
