Metting still figuring the mechanics

The rains stayed away long enough on Saturday for the Texas Tractor Truck Pull Association to have their day on the dirt at the Nordheim May Feast Shootout.

Club co-vice president Clint Metting said, “With the rains we questioned whether or not people would come. It has rained the last three years [cutting out one of the days of the Feast]. The top was sloppy but we worked on the track late on Friday cutting off two inches. With these winds (today) we feel really good that people will come.”

Quoting the movie Field of Dreams, “If you build it they will come,” happened. An hour before the event a blade dozer started to cut two more inches from the surface. By the time the event started the stands were packed on both sides of the track.

There were some mishaps. No one was injured. PoleCat somehow activated the kill switch leaving him standing in the track with a less than favorable pull.

Gold medal for Williams

AUSTIN – Nordheim is home to one of the fastest girls in the state, and she has the hardware to prove it.

Daija Williams claimed gold in the Class 1A 100-meter dash and then followed it up with a silver in the 200-meter dash, leaving last weekend’s UIL State Track and Field Meet at Mike A. Myers Stadium with a pair of medals.

Williams entered the 100 as one of the favorite in the nine-runner field, and she delivered.

A quick race, naturally, she got a great start out of the blocks and took a lead that she never relinquished. She was the only sprinter to finish with a time under 12.7 seconds and half the field failed to break the 13-second barrier.

In the 200-meter event only a new state record could beat Williams, who finished the race in 26.47 seconds.

Ragusin, Parrett make plans to play for Sul Ross

It is not everyday that a high school athlete has the opportunity and privilege of playing at the next level. Two Yorktown High School seniors have now been granted this chance.

J.D. Parrett and Joe Ragusin will always be Wildcats, but now they are going to be Lobos, too. Parrett and Ragusin are taking their football talents to Sul Ross State University in Alpine, TX.

A recent visit to the school sealed the deal for both of them.

Parrett and Ragusin were also considering Hardin Simmons, while Ragusin carried an offer from Texas Lutheran University in Seguin. It was Sul Ross, though, that ended up being the perfect fit for both of them.

Ragusin, an honorable mention all-state defensive tackle, looks to play somewhere on the defensive line for the Lobos.

Gallagher signs letter of intent with Texas Lutheran University

He may be small in stature at 5' 8" but he plays big and fast. It was enough for Texas Lutheran University to offer Cuero senior D’Andre Gallagher a letter of intent to play for the Bulldogs.

Cuero athletic director and head football coach Travis Reeve said, “He is an excellent route runner. He is very quick. He has tremendous hands and he is a smart football player. When you combine those things, size is not as big a factor when you know how to get open and catch the football. Those are things he does really well. TLU liked what they saw and thought that he would be a good fit for their offense.”

Gallagher said, “Size never got into my head. I always competed with bigger guys so it never played a part of anything.”

Doggett signs letter of intent with McMurry University

The dreams of playing football was nearly lost for Cuero senior Hunter Doggett until McMurry University War Hawks in Abilene was able to look at his performance.

Doggett said, “Originally, I did not think I was going to play anywhere because of my shoulder injury. I did not think any college would look at me.”

Cuero athletic director and head football coach Travis Reeve said, “When you have a football player who has had the success that Hunter has had, the experience as a two year starter, you want to give a kid like that an opportunity. He is not only a good football player, he is a great person, a good student and works extremely hard. You want guys like that to be a part of your program which is why they want him to be a part of their program. The injury is not as big of a concern.”

Doggett will play linebacker and defensive end for the War Hawks.
