Smithson Valley’s Joe Pawelek, he said, is one of those players. Whether Pawelek redshirts or plays is up to him, he said.
“I Ie came in and spent two or three weeks with us this summer, working out,” Mor-riss said. “The staff was all impressed with his work ethic and his conditioning and his attitude. But the question is, can he make the transition to the college game, which we all know is a lot faster.”
Pawelek said he doesn’t expect to immediately play because of seniors Colin Allred, Jamaal Harper and Tyler Iindstrom. But together, those three have only started five games, meaning nothing is set in stone.
“I wouldn’t bet against him,” Morriss said, noting he’s seen something special in Pawelek.
“By the way he plays, I think he was told that he could never play major college ball,” Morriss said. “And I think he’s got a chip on his shoulder in proving people wrong. I think he wants to get that off.”
Hill in THSCA election today
Smithson Valley coach Lar-ry I fill is one of three candidates up for election as FUSCA president-elect. He joins Mesquite’s Steve I lalpin and Tomball’s Pat Patterson on the ballot, to be considered in the general assembly meeting at 10:30 a.m. today.
The position is largely ceremonial, as THSCA executive director D.W. Rutledge and assistant executive director Joe Martin conduct the day-to-day chores. But Hill, a 22-year member who has spent the last three years on the board of directors, has indicated its an honor to be nominated.
The election precedes the induction of members into
the THSCA’s Hall of Honor. This year’s class includes Rutledge and University Interscholastic League athletic director and former I lardin-Jefferson basketball coach Charles Breithaupt, who’s nursing a broken collar bone he suffered July 9. Long-time coaches Ray Seals, Jerry Taylor and Willie Ray Smith (deceased) will also be honored.
Expect 5A numbers to increase
The UIL’s biennial realignment process will begin this fall. Breithaupt said to expect the number of schools in Class 5A to rise above the 245 currently in the classification. Of the 30 new schools built since the 2004 district realignment, 12 are in Class 5A, meaning the previous ceiling will change. It also might influence the numbers of schools in each district, meaning some the six-team and eight-team leagues could expand to include nine or IO schools, especially in metropolitan areas.
Originally scheduled for release Feb. I — National Signing Day — the realignment will be announced Feb. 2, UIL officials said Monday.
Writers, coaches vote differently
While coaches predict Smithson Valley will finish second to Converse Judson in District 26-5A, the writers believe otherwise.
In the voting, released Sunday, Texas Sports Writers Association picked Smithson Valley as the No. 5 team in Class 5A. Southlake Carroll, which has beaten the Rangers twice in the last three seasons for the Division II state championship, was first, followed by Spring Westfield, Lufkin and defending Division I champ Tyler Lee. Judson, which edged Smithson Valley 56-54 in a poll of six 26-5A coaches, was ranked No. 11.
In Class 4A, District 27-4A defending champ Lake Travis was rated No. IO.BASEBALL
