I am sorry but I won’t have much of a blog today. I traveled much of last week visiting schools in the area that I have designated as the gameface area. It pretty much stretches from Breckenridge to the north to Brady to the south. Glen Rose is the eastern edge of the coverage and Ballinger represents the final stop to the west.
Visiting with coaches and folks in those schools has been really great. Each coach has been really encouraging and has wished me the best of luck. They have all indicated that there is a web presence needed for their athletes. So it makes me feel as though I am in a win win situation in regard to loving what I am doing and doing something that will promote our student athletes.
One thing that I am learning is that we are in the hotbed of six man football. This does my heart really good since I grew up in an 8-man school and my hometown of Roaring Springs/Matador (now Motley County) is a six-man school. So going into the small schools is just great.
I was at the state track meet over the weekend. I still call that one of the greatest shows on earth. It seems that kids get bigger, faster, and stronger with each new season. Now don’t get me wrong, there are still records in the books that have some age on them also, but for the most part most of them have been broken within the last ten years.
The facility there at Mike Myers Stadium is the ultimate track facility and allows the spectator to see each event in its entirety. It is nice to be able to watch the field events while the running is taking place.
I will post more on gamefacetexas.com so please read and continue following because as I visit the schools, I leave the coaches a questionnaire to fill out so that we can get a glimpse of what they expect for the upcoming gridiron season.
I also cannot thank Fredda Jones, Stacy Dudley, and their staff for their hard work, inspiration, motivation, and encouragement in getting gameface up and running. I’m not sure that we are working since it all seems like so much fun and we have plenty to laugh about when we are around each other.
Fredda has an absolute passion for writing on texansunited.com and what she does and how she does it really gets me pumped to do what I am doing. We both want something with quality for all you who read. We are both extremely grateful for your time and your feedback. So please continue and I look forward to bringing you the best of the best from the Central Texas area in the world of sports.
