• Indian Photo Shows Much More Than Texas Football

    As you know (I’ve certainly crowed about it enough!), the Aledo Bearcat football program has held state champ honors  for the past three years. Recently a young man who played against the Bearcats wrote, “Aledo is the kind of team who will kick your (expletive deleted) and then shake your hand after the game.”

    Up until this year in Indian Stadium, I believed that statement to be one of the biggest compliments to a Texas football team that I had ever heard. However, every Friday night of this football season right here in Indian stadium I have seen something that I believe is an even bigger testament to a team and a coaching staff.

    Win or lose, after every single game Indians, coaches, and support staff head to the middle of the field where they stand at attention while the opposing team’s school song is played. Then, both teams come together for a brief time of fellowship, giving these young men a chance to see opposing team members as fellow students and peers rather than as the “enemies” of the past couple of hours.

    To Coach Stephen  Hermesmeyer and the rest of the Indian coaching staff, Texans United sends out a tremendous salute and our thanks for your part in helping these young men develop into adulthood with their priorities a little straighter.

    We also send out a huge GO INDIANS!! :)
