Well, the old adage about the third time being the charm didn’t hold true for first-year Ag teachers Blake O’Quinn and Vinnie Heller whose Ag Business team competed for and won state honors this past Friday. Of course, if you’ve met Heller and O’Quinn, you already know that they aren’t your run of the mill first-year teachers, and the honest truth is that I had a feeling they just might bring home the gold!
Of course, it didn’t hurt that Taylor Stephens, Tyler Payne, B.J. Reichman, and Colten Jones were the team memers, and this bunch of students didn’t have any idea that you don’t normally bring home top honors the first time you enter a contest. They just thought they were supposed to win, and win they did!
The state champs from Comanche, Texas will travel to Indianapolis in the fall to compete on the national level, and here at Texans United we’re thinking that since they’ve gone this far, they might as well win that one too.
And if you will notice…
…say it all!
The town of Comanche salutes all of you!
