According to the Sophienburg Archives ami members of he German communi ty Stammtisch represents a sit ting place for members of the com munity to gather and share the days happenings We invite you to share with Ghosts of 84 game still live on This week former NB and Canyon participants remember lone win By RICHARD T1JERINA Sports Editor Ron Rittimann walked into Jim Streetys office this week with a pack age that looked innocent enough But there was a hidden agenda Tucked safely beneath his arm was a videotape of the 1984 CanyonNew Braunfels game Streety groaned So did two of his assistants at San Antonio Madison They all were on the sidelines that October night nine years ago when the Cougars recorded their only victory in 15 tries Rittimann wore No 11 that night He was the starting quarterback for Canyon but now he works for Streety as an assistant coach at Madison Coach Rittimann has been a little hard to live with this said Streety who coached New Braunfels for 17 years before leaving for Madison in 1990 He made us all watch that tape and relive that The drought officially ended that night in a wild 2014 Canyon win But the game still lives on in the mem ories of those who watched it and par ticipated in it Every year the game is revisited at this time Tonight Canyon and New Braunfels play again on the same field Rittimann rushed his team to heroics nine years ago The relationships that have resulted from that game read Ukea football sbap was the Unicorn head coach and now coaches at Madi son Rittiman was the Canyon quar terback and now coaches for Streety Lew Simmonds was an assistant coach for Streety Now hes the head coach for the Unicorns Victor Sierra was the starting quarterback for New Braunfels and now is a coach for the Unicorns Victor Sierras younger brother Michael was in the stands that night Now hes the starting quarterback for Simmonds wearing the same No 7 that Victor wore in the 1980s Rittimann was an usher in Victor Sierras wedding Michael was Vic tors best man Then theres Alan Miller a 1982 graduate of New Braunfels and friend of Victors Miller also was in Sierras wedding and soon will be in another one Miller is engaged to Sierras older sister and will be married March 26 Both Victor and Michael will be groomsmen Now Miller is an assistant coach at Canyon As is Tom Kosser who was defensive coordinator for Canyon in 1984 and remains in the same position today Whew The game takes on special signifi cance this year because the Cougars are favored tonight It is the first year in the history of the series that Canyon is picked to win One of the ironies which could result from a Cougar win is the fact that both Unicorn losses will have featured a Siena at quarterback two of the most successful quarterbacks in New Braun fels history It seems like they had the ball the entire second Victor said of his memories of the 1984 game We were tied at the hulf and Ronnie and Canyon fullback Bret Cappleman took control They really played a great ganie that night and deserved to corns wanted to their own rushing could get off the alsosaid he cant remember a more competitive quarterback than Victor traits his broth er Mike has picked up and will use tonight against the Cougars I remember there was a large crowd and it was said Ritti mann who will attend tonights game That was the biggest win of my high school career Canyon is doing well this year and they might win HeraldZeitungtite photo Still plugged Into his headset then Canyon assistant coach Randy Reasoner hugs Tom Kosser as the game ended In 1984

reoort from Catarino Delgado the Employment and Training Area Operations Coordinator for the Alamo Area Council of Governments concerning the employment of citizens laid off at Krogers and the Iselin plant We are starting a campaign to advise the people who were laid off to come into the JTPA office for ser said Delgado We dont have a good number coming in and they need to come in if theyre inter ested in starting a new career or acquiring skills they can market We can assist them by sending them to school through on the job training contracts but we need to have them come and tell us they are interest ed so that we can justify to the state that we have cit izens who need these The Job Training Partnership Act office for Comal County has been allocated in job search funds to help local citizens find employment Delgado reported that JTPA provided orientation to more than 100 individuals from the Iselin plant on what training would be available to them Of those about 50 asked JTPA for help JTPA is now trying to get the Kroger employees laid off to come in to hear what training opportunities are available to them MegaFoods is currently hiring and is planning to open Oct 15 according to Commissioner J L Evans and JTPA However the pay scales are considerably lower and many former Kroger employees cannot meet their obligations at the lower rate and will have to seek other careers Although more than 200 employees in Comal and Guadalupe County have been contacted only about 20 have come to JTPA for help Those interested in the job training services may apply at the Job Training Partnership Act offices at 358 Lancia Street Delgado said there are some funds available for youth programs year around also Delgado is the coordinator and services planner for Comal Kames and Wilson
