It's that time of the football season when the Thunderbirds and the Rockets see which can fly higher. Both are quality teams that can put points up on the board. While both teams really are playing a home game at Rutledge Stadium, technically Wagner is the home team this year. Judson is coming off a opening district win over Clemens in an offensive shootout 49-35. Meanwhile, Wagner lost a tough one to New Braunfels High School 35-21. All records aside, the Hammer Bowl brings a fresh perspective and a real opportunity for both squads. We want to support both teams, so let's fill up Rutledge and have a spirited game that shows great pride, athletic ability, and above all sportsmanship. Good Luck!!
Working and disciplining the body for athletic performance is a good thing, but there are a number of athletes who are showing they are working on the mind and spirit too. Female athletes involved in the M.A.D. (Making A Difference) program are individuals who have decided to get involved in their community. These girls recently walked with Stephanie Crane, a downs syndrome participant who the school has supported for the past 10 years. She is a former student of Coach Urbanovsky's from some 18 years ago. It's great to see time students decide to spend in the support of others. These individuals are growing in body, mind and spirit...giving to others.
It's district play now...the Judson Rockets are coming off a big victory over Brennan to go 4-0, but it's no time to let up with Clemens coming to Rutledge. Everyone knows these games count in district standings so everyone will be prepared going onto the field. Wagner meanwhile is smokin' after the 72-35 victory over the Marshall Rams. In fact, KENS 5 will be on campus to congratulate the team and Coach Bruce on the victory and the offensive break out the players showed in that game. The T-Birds travel to New Braunfels to start off this important part of the schedule the right way. Let's put fans in the seats and let them hear you!
