August 2627 New coach same winning tradition Unicorns head into the 1995 volleyball season in transition By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editor Returning to coach her hometown high school team is like a dream come true for Phyllis Fowler Then again in New Braun volleyball and winning traditionally go hand in hand it would be the dream of most coaches Fowler who replaced coach Claudia Perry this summer began her first week Monday at NBHS She said the team looked impressive in its recent scrimmages against Lee Edison and Flo resville and the players appear primed to carry on the success of 1994 Last year the Unicorns finished 274 captured the district title and were ranked No 1 in the state at the end of the season Its a performance the new coach hopes to duplicate though with her own system Anytime a new coach comes in you are going to have Fowler said Its not a matter of whether changes are good or bad They simply need to be made to fit the coach and the team The players have to accept adjusting to new things Its not an easy situation not for the players or the coach But as long as theres a good positive attitude and the desire to want to get bet ter each day well be The Unicorns enter the 1995 season with plenty of talent including three returning seniors Outside hitter Shawn Lindsey middle blocker Kristi Lindeman outside blockerErin Baetge and middle blocker Jill Evans bring experience and lead ership to the court Adding depth and proven skills to the lineup are middle block er Shelley Bredewater and Wendy returning juniors and sophomore middle blocker Kristi Hull Fowler said the first priority is getting players into top physical condition That should work itself out in the next few weeks Meanwhile she must find a player to replace alldistrict setter Rochelle Colvin who signed with Texas Lutheran College last spring The Unicorns are blessed with talent at the net However getting the ball into position for those big smashes is essential and that means finding a setter a position which coaches consid er the equivalent of a quarterback in football One thing I feel good about is that we can definitely hit the Fowler said Well be strong in that area but we have to be able to pass well and set up our Several setter prospects are waiting in the wings During the next week of scrimmaging Fowler will assess the play of Haley Helmly Jessica Barney and Erica Walther Having played high school volleyball at Smithson Valley and Canyon under Donna Boehle Fowler is excited about the oppor i tunity in her Taking over the job in New Braunfels figures to be a challenge The team plays before packed home crowds on a regular basis and parents and fans can be demanding Fowler said she knows the expectations and is ready take on the new season Any coach would love she said The support is here and players are very talented Its all a coach could ask Herald Zeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL New Braunfels new head volleyball coach Phyllis Fowler enters the 1995 campaign with plans to take the Unicorns back to the District 284A title Primed for the reins at QB Simmonds looks to guide the Unicorns in 1995 By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editor Some players accept new roles and other players thrive on them David Simmonds is the the kind of player that seems to excel when thrust into a new position Take last October for example when Kelly Garza the Unicorns rusher suf fered an ankle injury New Braunfels trailed Canyon 63 as time was fading in the fourth quarter Simmonds a parttime receiver and running back in 1994 entered the backfield and got set for a draw play He took the handoff and bolted 52 yards putting the Unicorns in position for the goahead touchdown and a 97 win Anyone could have run through that Simmonds said Last spring following the departure of senior quarterback Johnny Reyes New Braunfels coaches called upon Simmonds to vie for the starting job It was a position he hadnt played since seventh grade I was ready for he said The team need ed someone to come in and run the offense and the coaches felt like I could do it I just wanted to help out anywhere they needed At 510 170 pounds Simmonds has good H Id z t h MIPHAEL DARNAI i pounas aimmonas nas gooa Quarterback David Simmonds is working to give toe Unicorns a double size witn nis speed in the 40 threat as a passer and runner yard dash As a junior receiver in 1994 he hauled in 15 passes for 115 yards and two touch downs Though not a pure passer his arm strength and accuracy are solid And that fits well with head coach Tim Kingsburys plans for long sustained drives rather than quick strikes New Braunfels quarterback coach Victor Sierra believes Simmonds could pose a double threat for opposing defenses Teams would have to think twice when he drops back or rolls out on a Sierra said David has speed good footwork and can get outside on plays Hes a smart kid and knows the offense Its a new position but he has the skills to get the job Quarterbacking isnt entirely unfamilar Old er brother and former Unicorn Jimmy Sim monds was among the states toprated passers early in the 1989 season This summerthe two spent afternoons tossing the football and mulling game situations Jimmy solved a minor throw ing problem by showing his brother a more comfortable grip on the ball I feel a lot better with my Sim monds said Hes giving me tips all the time telling me about leadership and what it takes to be a quarterback I give him a lot a lot credit for getting me ready this For his part Simmonds is ready to battle for the role of the new man at the Unicorns offen sive helm The Florida Connection Dallas Irvin Smith stick together AUSTIN AP One of the first times Michael Irvin crossed paths with Emmitt Smith Irvin was holding court in the Dallas Cow boys locker room before the 1990 season practicing his bragging routine Smith smiled from his locker but never joined the choms of hecklers who are such an integral part of Irvins performances A quiet rookie Smith kept to himself On that day Irvin found his straight man and ultimately his best friend Their bond has helped the two stars overcome pain and odds reach the heights of their profession and take a team to two Super Bowl victories Its all about team and unity and inside that team unity you find special little bonds like Mike and said Cowboys guard Nate Newton Intrigued by Smiths quiet hardworking demeanor Irvin one day cast the rookie in a supporting role for one of his standup rou tines Irvin was bdasting to the locker room about the prowess of football at Miami his alma mater as he frequently does and then abruptly declared that the entire state of Florida had the best football in the country a jab at his Texas teammates He called on Smith a star for Miamis rival Florida Gators to back him up A smiling Smith reluctantly joined in and before long Irvin and Smith were organizing an allFlorida team to take on any challengers and prove their point Well take on Texas Well be unbeatable Well get Nate Newton of Florida as our Irvin ranted as he began dreaming up the roster Irvin and Smith became connected united in their message that Florida ruled the football kingdom They dubbed themselves The Flori da Boys You dont mess with The Florida Irvin said We hold bond When Eminitt first got here he was real sub dued and I was maybe a little too hyper And we got together and made a beautiful mixture I love the guy and thats deep coming from a man to a Michael Irvin
