“I’ve played football with Corky and he’s obviously a great coach... I’m just thankful for being given the opportunity,” Simmonds said. “I wouldn’t say that I expected it, but I certainly felt like the board was truly committed to keeping what was going on and that sort of thing.”
Simmonds said he was concerned the 1991 football team would have floundered with a wholesale coaching change.
‘‘I think this team in particular had to have continuity. We’ve got some kids on here that have at times struggled to get the things done right,
and we’ve stayed with them and they’ve stayed with us. Right now, they’re ready to contribute,” he said.
“lf there would have been a change, I think there would have been some problems, I really do. But these kids are ready. They arc ready to play within our system and they are going to do well.”
Now that he is the Unicorns’ athletic director, Simmonds said nothing would make him and his wife, Pat, happier than staying put.
“We want to retire here. We don’t want to go anywhere else, we don’t want another job,” he said. “We want to stay right here until I retire.”

Critical games highlight baseball schedule
By TOM LABINSKI Sports Editor
Comal County’s three high school baseball teams will all be involved in critical games tonight as the district races enter their final two weeks.
In the only out-of-town game among the three. New Braunfels visits South San at 7:30 p.m. in a matchup of the two preseason favorites. Both teams are scrambling to stay alive in the title chase, however, with the Unicorns tied for second place and South San in fifth.
After starting 25-5A play with a 3-0 record, New Braunfels dropped three of its next five district games. The team is coming off Tuesday night’s
3-2, eight-inning victory over San Marcos, as Grant Hodges raised his
I to 7-2 on the season. The Unicorns are 10-10 on the year.
Lorenzo Saucedo, coming off a 2-0 loss to Harlan dale last weekend, is the scheduled pitcher for tonight’s game. Although the senior’s record fell to 1-5 with the decision, Saucedo pitched a five-hitter.
In the first meeting between New Braunfels and South San, the Unicorns rallied from a 6-1 deficit to take a 10-6 win, banging out 16 hits in the process. New Braunfels’ bats have cooled in the last three weeks, however, as the team had just 17 hits in its last three games combined.
The Bobcats raised their record to
4-5 on Tuesday night by downing Seguin 3-1. South San has won three

Harlandale enjoys a half-game lead over both New Braunfels and East Central, and will visit 2-7 San Marcos tonight. The third 25-5A game pits Seguin at East Central in an afternoon affair.
Smithson Valley’s two-game losing streak has created a four-wav tie for first place in the District 26-4A race with four games left to play.
The Rangers, Bastrop, Hays and Lockhart are all 4-2, with Smithson Calley hosting the Lions in a key matchup tonight.
The 7 p.m. contest is the only district game involving two of the co-leaders. The Rangers won the first game in Lockhart 10-8 after holding a 10-2 lead going into the bottom of the sixth. Jason LaRue and Wes Penaloza
both homered in the game for Smithson Valley.
The Rangers dropped a 4-3 decision at Hays on Tuesday after losing its first district game at Schertz Clemens last weekend. Smithson Valley Coach Keith Brown said his squad bounced back from a sloppy effort last Friday and played well against the Rebels before becoming the 11th victim of Hays ace Trevor Capone. On the season, the Rangers are 14-6.
LaRue, who leads the San Antonio
area with a .545 batting average, is the expected pitcher for tonight’s game. LaRue was the losing pitcher against Clemens to drop to 3-2 for the year.
With an 0-6 record, the Canyon Cougars are out of the playoff picture, but they can still determine who will advance to postseason play.
The Cougars host Hays today in a 7 p.m. game and are looking to pick up their second victory in their last 12 games against the playoff-minded Rebels.
Hays took a 10-2 victory in the first meeting with Canyon in Mountain City, as Trevor Capone’s brother, Tracy, pitched a seven-hitter.
Despite improving play by the defense and pitchers Bryan Arnold and Johnny Schaas, the Cougar offense has accounted for just 17 hits in the last four games.
Canyon’s last win was an 11-6 victory over Randolph on March 28. That decision snapped a five-game losing streak that dated back to March 7. The Cougars are currently 7-14 on the year.
In tonight’s third 26-4A matchup, 4-2 Bastrop visits 2-4 Clemens.

FOX BORO, Mass. (AP) — In the past, the New England Painots have shown eagerness to trade their draft picks, but it seems the high bidders are dropping out when it comes to Raghib "Rocket” Ismail.

* The Patriots had been considering trade offers from the Cowboys and Atlanta, but Dallas owner Jerry Jones told The Associated Press Thursday night dial Dallas had no plans to acquire the No. I selection.
“We came close, but there’s no deal,’’ Jones said.
Cowboys Coach Jimmy Johnson said he arid Jones discussed the possibility of making a trade with New England on Wednesday. Joimson said lie and Jones decided to suck to certain restrictions throughout any negotiations.
But die Patriots demanded players that the Cowboys didn’t feel dicy could afford lo give up, Johnson said. He did not name die players.

Sam Jankovtch, the Patriots’ chief executive officer, said he expected pressure to build lo complete a deal so the other team would have tune lo try to sign Ismail before the draft starts al 11 a.m. CUT.
Although the situation can change, Jankovich said, the Patriots prefer to trade the first pick Their next choice would be lo lake Ismail, he said, and the least likely option would be to make another player the top choice.
