Local centers making impact at college level
Cowboys need to right ship against Redskins
By David Rupkalvis
High school football fans in the area have gotten used to watching winning programs, but for the most part Smithson Valley, New Braunfels and Canyon win without a large number of Division I caliber of players.
But college recruiters have learned a secret about high school football in the greater New Braunfels area — the schools produce great centers.
This year, three former players started at major universities and Canyon and New Braunfels had the top two centers in their district this year.
Sure, there are other positions where local athletes shine at the college level. Reed Boyd is a starting linebacker for Texas, Wes Zunker made news as a place kicker for New Mexico, Alva de la Garza starts on the Texas A&M offensive line and Cody Fuller plays two sports at Texas Tech.
Texas Tech edges San Diego State
LUBBOCK (AP) — Andre Emmett scored 19 points as Texas Tech beat San Diego State 78-68 on Saturday.
Tech (8-2) led by eight points early in the second half but San Diego St. used a 6-0 run to cut th&m^gm^ 5J-51 on a drive ny Brandon I leath with 12:56 remaining. T he Aztecs (5-3) kept it close but couldn’t overtake Tech.
Tech led 40-34 at halftime.
Darryl Dora gave Tech a boost late in the game, getting nine of 13 Red Raiders points in about a five-minute span tha.t ended with 3:51 to go.
Tech had five players in double figures. Ronald Ross scored 16 points, Dora added 14, Robert Tomaszek had 13 and Jarrius Jackson scored IO.
I leath scored 30 points and Wesley Stokes, Chris Walton and Aerick Sanders added eight each for San Diego State.
But the emphasis seems to be at center. With New Braunfels graduate Nolan Bluntzer starting at the University of California, Smithson Valley graduate John Peel starting at the Air Force Academy and New Braunfels graduate Geoff Hangartner starting at Texas A&M, the centers truly have become the center of attention.
Add to that Canyon's Roger Molinet was selected to the all-district first team and New Braunfels Justin Watts was the second team choice.
Canyon Coach Brad Wright said he's not sure why centers have done so well at elite universities, but noted that college recruiters have begun to make regular stops at Canyon, New Braunfels and Smithson Valley to scout offensive linemen in general.
With the all three schools placing an emphasis on working out in the weight room, Wright said the stops by recruiters are likely to continue.
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — I low does 8-5 feel? Not good at all when the last two games were lpst by a combined 45 points.
And when the coach is Bill Parcells, it feels downright miserable.
“It makes for a loooooooong week,’’ safety Darren Woodson said. “You can’t wait until they blow that whistle for the Washington game. That’s the kind of week this i^... a lot of yelling, a lot of screaming. Nothing’s going to be right no matter what it is. He’s a sore loser, and I think that’s what he wants us all to be, sore losers."
After going 1-3 through a tough November schedule, the Dallas Cowboys are in danger of losing their grip on the improbable playoff run they crafted with a 5-1 start. Their Final three games, all against teams currently with losing records, will determine whether the quick start in ParceUs’ first year was just an early fluke.
“I’m glad that we have

something to play for. That’s very important, particularly in your first year," Parcells said. “This is a very, very key game for us."
If other results fall just the right way, the Cowboys can even clinch a playoff berth with a victory.
