New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 10, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas 2A □ Herald-Zeitung □ Wednesday, December 10,1997 V b I I - — Unicorns from Page 1A sumed plenty of food at mealtime, his diet was surprisingly good for a high school student. “I have found Trey to be very conscious of his nutrition,” she said. “He really tries to eat things that will be good for him and help him build strength. I’ll say, ‘Do you want a Coke?’ and he says, ‘No, I want juice or Sunny Delight.’ “He turns down things that 18-year-olds would want to live on.” Roeder said the same could be said for other Unicorns who come by for meals. “I do feed a lot of kids here, so when three guys walk through the door, there is something to eat,” she said. “His friends eat the same way. Most of the ones I know are conscious of what is good for them. They want to be the best and they refuse to lose.” Josh Salge said he wasn’t overly conscious about what he ate but made an effort to stay away from fat and cholesterol. “I try to stay healthy, but my favorite food is probably macaroni and cheese,” he said. “I also like that fast food, but just every once in a while.” NBHS coach Tim Kingsbury makes sure the Unicorns don’t have tao much to eat before a game, tjbugh. :*“We can’t eat anything four hours before a game.” Josh said. ^    vs.    rn- tfssfthmps    Bears • WHEN: 8 pm Saturday • WHERE: Astrodome, Houston, Texas.

The efforts of the coaches to keep the team in top shape made a big difference in the performance of the team this season, RaeAnn Roeder said. “One comment I’ve heard from my son speaks a lot for the program, and it’s that they’ve hardly ever been tut (in a game) harder than they do in practice. They always say that perfect practice makes for a perfect game, so I believe when they are out there practicing, it’s almost like a game situation.” Celeste Salge said Josh has macaroni and cheese each Friday, and spaghetti, which was on the menu Tuesday, was one of his least favorite meals. Trey Roeder, on the other hand, liked mashed potatoes, RaeAnn Roeder said. “These kids don’t want to compromise what they do to be the best. The offensive line doesn’t really worry too much about (protecting quarterback (Cliff Kingsbury), but in turn I think Trey feels a great obligation to get his job done.” And as his mother can attest, that usually involves a lot of trips to the supermarket.
