Parks & Wildlife begins deer contest
By GERALD ALMY Special to tho Hor a Id
With the spring and summer rains that most of South and Central Texas have experienced, antler growth has been excellent on deer this year and already a number of good bucks have been harvested by hunters.
To recognize the most outstanding animals taken, the Parks and Wildlife Department has begun a new Texas Big Game Awards program.
The program is designed, according to a Parks and Wildlife biologist David Synatzske, “to recognize the importance of habitat and wildlife production management as essential to the welfare of wildlife resources and the habitat upon which they depend.”
Similar programs are being run by 27 other states, but this is the first year for Texas to recognize the largest big game animals bagged in the lute for the year. The program is also designed to encourage participation by young and new hunters.
Awards will be on a regional basis — which is good, since it would be hard for most Hill Country bucks, for instance, to compete with those from the
South Texas brush country.
A special “Texas 400” certificate will be awarded to the top 50 typical whitetails within each of the eight established regions. All scored entries will be recognized in a ranked listing and certificates awarded to participants, with equal recognition made to land managers on whose property the animals were produced.
There will be categories for whitetail, mule deer and pronghorn legally harvested in Texas during the current hunting season. Hunters harvesting their first deer or antelope will be recognized in an alphabetical listing.
Scoring for entries will be based upon the Boone and Crockett Club guidelines utilizing net green
scores. Entries must be scored by a Texas Big | Game Awards certified scorer.
All entries, except for a hunter’s first deer, must meet minimum scores for the region of harvest.
Minimum entry in the typical deer category will be in the 125-140 range, depending upon the region. Pronghorns must score at least 70. Mule deer will have to score 145 typical or 160 non-typical.
’'Land managers have the option through this program to be recognized for their management efforts,” Synatzske said. “This is extremely |
important for the goal of promoting the wise use of wildlife and habitat resources within the state.”
In addition, the TPWD will be able to gather val- |j
uable data on the status of regional management £
within the state. Annual recognition ceremonies will be held in each region, and the top three animals in each category will he recognized at a statewide ceremony.
The program ii sponsored by the TPWD, Texas I Wildlife Association and Lone Star Brewing Company. For the phone number of the scorer cloeeet to I location, contact the Texas Parks and Wildlife Bpanment at 389-4800.

"Whitlock is pretty much their main man,” Matullch said. “He likes to keep the football, and he is very capable.”
The Rebels also have a speed threat at halfback in Charles Adams, and another halfback — Paul Alvarado — who is more of an inside runner.
“Offensive line-wise, they’re not as big as they were last year,” he said. “But defensively, they’re pretty good; they’re a hard-nosed, aggressive team with a lot of speed.”
Matulich said the Ranger offense has improved immensely after adjustments were made prior to the Clemens game. Doc York was moved to the offensive line and Mike Dwyer shifted from center to provide some extra size, and linebacker Jason LaRue became a more integral pan of the offense in the backfield.
"I'm real proud of the way the kids rebounded the last two weeks,” Matu-lich said. "They're played real well. We’re beginning to do some real good things, and we got a momentum-lifter with the Canyon game.”
He said quarterback Jason Long has played much betta’ in the past two weeks, and the addition of LaRue has improved production offensively.
Probable starting lineups for Smithson Valley vs. Hays
WR—Bryan Wieland (Soph, 140); WR— Undecided; T—Adam Sumner (Jr, 210) or Larry Sloan (Jr, 185); G—Doc York (Sr, 200); C—Slavs Lacy (Sr, 185); G—Mike Dwyer (Sr, 220); T—Walk— Steubing (Sr, 210); OB—J—on Long (Jr, 180); WO—Jeremy Stewart (Sr, 180); RS—Corey Henderson (Jr, 175); FB—J—on Bota (Sr. 210).

Jeremy Stewed (Sr, 180).
SE—Treoe Shelton (8r. 180); LT—Frank Lockhart (8r. 167); LG—Michael Horal (Sr, 191); C—Octavio Oueaada (Jr, 218); RO— Dade Very ar (Sr, 190); RT—Rick Guerrero (Sr, 176); TE/WR—Matt Goebier (Jr, 168); SE—Michael Dagga (Sr, 155); OB—Jamey Whitlock (Sr, 180) or Mat! McKinney (Sr, 180); FB—Abel Rodriguez (Sr. 175); HB— Paul Alvarado (Sr, 139); HB—Charlet Adams (Jr, 138).
DEFENSE NG—Chad Dube (Jr, 197); DT—Dade Verver (Sr. 190); DT—Michael Horst (Sr, 191); DE—Thomas Dew an (Jr, 182); DE— Mark Maples (Jr, 149); LB—Abel Rodriguez (Sr, 175); LB-Frank Lockhart (Sr. 167); SS—Matt McKinney (Sr, 180); FS—Michael Deggs (Sr, 186); CB—Charlet Adams (Jr, 138); CB—Trace Shelton (Sr, 180).
Jason Bom, it fullback, continues to be a steady force on offense — he had 93 yards lut week against the Cougars, second on the team to Long's 149.
Like the Rangers, Hays plays a lot of kids on both sides of the ball. All of the Ranger backs except for Corey Hendason also play defense; all of Hays’ backs and receivers except for Whitlock start on defense.
“I think they have about as many
kids suited up as we do,” Matulich said.
Despite that, the Rebels have been strong both in the preseason and in district.
“They’ve pretty much beaten everyone pretty handily except Bastrop,” he said. Hays’ otha loss was to Clemens, in a 17-15 game.
Because of the Rebels’ dominant quarterback, Matulich said it is no secret who the Rangers need to focus on.
"We have to tike Whitlock away, if we can,” he said. "We need to try to move the football and keep it in our offensive hands.
"It ought to be a good game. We feel pretty good about our chances, and I know they probably feel the same way about their choices,” he said. “We just want to go up there and play. We’re just going to try to win the game."
Although the Rebels are playing for the playoffs, Matulich said the Ran-gas will be just as fired up playing for the possible 5-4-1 finish.
“We’d just like to finish with a winning season. That would be a good accomplishment for these kids," Matulich said. “Everyone we’ve played that’s beaten us (in still in playoff contention). Our four losses have been to pretty good football teams. We'd like to beat somebody (who could go to the playoffs).”
But he said the team isn’t putting a lot of pressure on—the Hays game, he said, should be a fun finale for the Rangers.
“This is the last game for us," he said. “There’s no reason we can’t have a good time and let it all hang out. I think that’s the approach we’re taking.”

Braunfels could validate the Matadors’ season.
"I would think, in their mind, if they beat us it would take some of the sting out of an otherwise mediocre to disappointing season,” Simmonds said. “They were the first team out of the playoff picture, the first team eliminated. But they’ve played hard and they’ve continued to play hard.”
The Matadors have also had their share of bad luck and last-minute disasters. Seguin lost its district opener 7-6 when Harlandale drove downfield and scored in the filial 45 seconds of the game; South San’s 15-14 win at Seguin was even more dramatic as the Bobcats scored the winning touchdown on fourth down with no time left.
Seguin also held a prolific East Central team to six points, but lost 6-0. The Matadors’ one district win was against a San Marcos team which is still in line for a playoff berth.
“They’ve had some really unfortunate things happen,’’ Simmonds said. “They’ve turned the ball over at key times. But they are just not allowing a lot of points.”
Simmonds said he is very impressed with the Matador defense, which is led by senior linebacker Bobby Jack Rushing.
“They’re playing great defense,” he said. “They hold people to one touchdown, two touchdowns. Up until this week, they haven’t scored a lot of points either — and we certainly hope that doesn’t change this week.”
The offense is capable, however, with the Matadors possessing several talented skill players. The best of those, Simmonds said, is receiver James Medrano.
“He’s made some great catches,” he said. “He appears to have some speed.”
The running backs are good blockers but not
breakaway threats, Simmonds said, while quarterback Korey Kirchner runs the option well and possesses good throwing ability.
Except for 230-pound sophomore tackle Christopher Brown, who plays offense and defense, the Matadors do not have tremendous size — something Simmonds said will be a refreshing change after going against the huge lines of East Central and McCollum.
"It’s the first time in district that we’ll be able to matchup to anybody weight-wise,” he said. “Against McCollum’s 230, 220, 260 people, we were giving up 30 and 40 pounds.”
Ezell Sanchez will return from an injury this week, although his replacement at three positions. Dennis Bryan, did such a good job at receiver, cornerback and kicker that Sanchez’ time could be reduced.
Bryan was already alternating with Sanchez before his injury, and the return of the junior could give Bryan some rest in spots.
“It’s hard to keep Dennis off the field. I never thought I’d say this, but he’s a game-breaker,’’ Simmonds said. “Right now, he is a clutch playa. When he was a sophomore. I never thought he would play as a senior.
“Now, when we need something, I look for him. Thai’s to his credit. He has worked hts mil off to get whae he is.”
The coach said the Unicorns seem fired up for the game, afta which they will meet today’s Lee vs. Madison loser in the first round of the playoffs. Despite coming off a loss that most likely cost them the outright district championship, the Unicorns have had some of their better practices this week. Simmonds said.
“We had the most spirited, enthusiastic workout we’ve hod in years (on Tuesday) —just a solid, fun
workout,” he said. “When you go into the 10th ball game acting like you’re playing a Sunday afternoon family pickup game, there’s a lot of fun going on.”

lutng on and claw and scratch lo get the job done. Defensively, we have to be prepared to play,” he said. “ lf they have the ball for 65 to 70 plays a game like we’ve been giving up, we’re in big trouble.”
Playing Bastrop, Nowotny said, gives Canyon an opportunity to sec what a lop-quality football team is like — something he hopes the Cougars will take advantage of.
“II we’re going to swing die program around, our young guys Ila vc to look at ibis game with their eyes open and die ii minds open,” he said. “They can see where diey’ve got to get to to be one of die better
teams in (be state. Everyone starts out the year wanting to be die champion, but it takes raising your level of commitment and level of work. Watching diem. we can evaluate where we are and bow far we’ve gin to go.’’
And remember mg David and Goliath. Nuwotny said die outcome isn’t decided until die game is played.
“Nobody gives us a chance,” lie said. “That’s die reason we play the game We’re not just going to flip a coin and give them the game — we’re not going lo do dial. We’ve always got a chaine to win.
