284A champions at the district tournament Friday SV Rangers back to war atLockhart By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editor Last weeks 169 loss to Canyon already is a distant memory for the Smithson Val ley Rangers as they head into bat tle with Lockhart 24 01 this Friday at Ranger Stadium As SVHS coach Larry Hill sees it theres simply not enough time to dwell on a single setback when every week poses another challenge in District 284A The kids were disappointed about last Friday but we cant sit around licking our Hill said In this district you have to move on and get ready for the next one because every game is The Rangers expect to get back on track after jumping out to a 40 record and then dropping their last two games to Marble Falls and Canyon Last year the Rangers entered the Lock hart contest with a 60 record and a thrilling lastsecond win over the Cougars The Lions took opening kickoff and scored for a 60 lead The lead was at 127 before Smithson Valley rallied for an 1812 vic tory It was a war last year on a wet muddy night and we were lucky to get out of it with a win Hill said Lockhart is a very physical team They try to knock you around on offense and on defense they make you mix it Senior Bill Snead a bruising fullback and Rodney Wilson a breakaway runner are the Lions main offensive threats Quarterback Sean Everest and running back Tim Ivey lead a Ranger offense that averages 340 yards and 31 points per game Ivey ranks among the areas leading rush ers with 795 on 125 carries Scrappy crappie keep angler happy Keith Warren Although I prefer to catch black bass over crappie its hard to over look these scrappy gamefish when they are really biting The bag limits are generous they are delicious to eat and most impor tantly they are easy to catch espe cially at San Rayburn and Toledo Bend in East Texas Crappie fishermen like bass fish ermen have lots of theories of locat ing their fish Ask ten anglers and youll likely get ten different opin ions of where to go While crappie will be located next to some type of cover most anglers target these slabs around sub merged hydrilla standing timber or boat docks Perhaps its because they know the lakes much better than I do However rather than running all over the lakes to find a particular holding spot you may want to try the bridges that cross both lakes These long bridges are supported by hundreds of large concrete piling that serve as year round cover for crappie and other fish While lake level changes may move crappie com pletely out of an area in the main lake its very unlike ly itll run crappie off the bridge The bridge pilings will never move shade is pro vided every day plus birds nest under the bridges which keep bait fish in the area feeding on bird drop pings All these natural things keep fishing under bridges great places to target for crappie Live minnows work best It is not uncommon to catch bass and catfish under the bridge too Depending upon the time of the year I usually start around 25 feet deep and more shallower checking each pair of pilings If that is unsuccessful move to the other end and repeat the same process When you find the right piling youll catch a good limit There is a downside to only fishing the bridge If the wind gets up it can be very dangerous Be prepared to find shelter You can contact the Texas Angler by calling 210 6253474 or by writing to Box

coasts despite players arrest By JAIME ARON AP Sports Writer DALLAS AP In the last few weeks star football players on two of the states most promi nent high school football teams have been sus pended from athletics following arrests for very serious crimes The reaction within the teams have been shockingly different At Tyler John Tyler the defending 5A Divi sion II champions havent missed a beat

much more difficult at Riesel where star running back Atron Taylor 19 was arrested last week and charged with sexually assaulting a 15yearold girl A few nights later Riesel lost 147 to Mart The loss caused them to fall from No 3 in Class 3 A to No 10 Riesel coach Todd Harbour said his team wasnt ready to play Mart The emotional toll of losing Taylor had mentally drained the entire team Once the adrenalin wore off boom we couldnt Harbour said Wednesday By the second quarter kids were already tired I felt like before the game I had run a Losing Taylor cost Riesel a star player for the second straight week In the previous game running backlinebacker Jeremy Rosas suffered a dislocated ankle Players were disturbed by Rosas injury because it was so gruesome Har bour said it first was feared to be a compound fracture But as painful as that was Taylors troubles were even more difficult to handle Harbour said Both were pretty traumatic for our Harbour said They hurt for both of The good
