  1. That’s true. Great great kid. He’s an Alto kid (heck his mom and grandparents are Alto kids!! Lol). His step dad’s mom passed away and they have inherited the house and land in Timpson. Gonna miss him. Great friend of my son’s; they have been buddies since tball. Awesome family all around.
  2. I would put Alto’s Friday night atmosphere up against pretty much anybody’s. Stands are packed, band is live, boys are pumped, smoke is firing, cryo jets are lit(! lol), and it’s pretty much the place to be. Most towns probably say the same thing, but we kind of kick it up a notch in my opinion. Caleb Beames of KTRE/KLTV thinks so, too!
  3. Today Dave Campbell’s Texas Football released the pre-season Top 10 for 2A Division 1 and Division 2! As expected, Timpson is the highest ranked D1 school from Region 3 at #3 and Mart is the favorite in D2 at #1. Garrison is preseason #8 in D1 while Tenaha is #7 in D2. Out of 20 teams ranked in both divisions, those are the 4 from Region 3. The Texas Football magazine will be out soon. Who else contends for the region?

  5. Yes sir, it should be. State softball is being live streamed this week on the NFHS Network https://www.nfhsnetwork.com/
  6. Congratulations to the Eagles! Watched that game in person last night and JD was pretty phenomenal as usual. He allowed one hit. Been watching this kid since 10U and he deserves every bit of success that comes his way. In addition to his pitching performance the dude can swing! Hit a timely triple last night to get Rusk on the board, then scored on a liner by Sunday. That’s all they needed to take it! Anyway, it will be interesting to see the strategy for TWO games at state. They have been fortunate to play one game the last three weeks (of course that China Spring game went 13 innings so that
  7. Good luck to the Bulldogs! That first game was a nail biter (second one too for that matter!). 10 innings to decide Game 1. Wow. Congratulations!
  8. Thanks Wolf. We were picked to finish 4th in the district and went 4 rounds deep. Just an error (or two! ) from going to Game 3. Proud of the guys and what they accomplished this season. Quite a few starters returning; we’ll certainly miss the seniors. For me they exceeded expectations. Great group and it was a fun season. On to football!
  9. Well it wasn’t a thumping. Alto led both games until the 6th. Lost 4-1 and 5-4. Couldn’t seal the deal. Good luck to Rivercrest and Garrison. Should be a good series.

  11. Man, it would do my heart good if Alto and Garrison were playing next week for a trip to the state tournament! Good luck to the Bulldogs. Gotta git ‘r done this week for that to happen.
