China Spring and the Heisman

1. When my family moved to Waco in 1984, we moved to a suburb called China Spring. My sister and I both graduated from China Spring High School. Today, the Cougars faced the La Vega Pirates. La Vega handed China Spring their only loss of the season when they met in District Play. Today was the Regional Finals at Floyd Casey Stadium (Baylor's Stadium) in Waco. My sister called this afternoon and gave me the great news that China Spring had won 31-28. Now, they will face Cuero in the State 3A Semi-finals. Congratulations Cougars!!!

2. I have to admit that I was pulling for Darren McFadden to win the Heisman. I was really hoping that the Cowboys could draft him with one of their two first round picks in next April's draft, but with Cleveland doing so well that is not going to happen. However, after watching the video montages of Tim Tebow, I began to hope that he would win. Tim Tebow won the Heisman trophy. He was a homeschooler who under Florida laws was allowed to play on the local High School team. He was recruited to Florida. Tebow is the first Sophomore ever to win the Heisman trophy. He mentioned that his priorities in life are his "faith, family, academics and football" fourth. Tebow demonstrated that by thanking "Jesus Christ" to open up his acceptance speech. He thanked God two more times throughout his speech. Congratulations Tim Tebow! You picked up a fan in me tonight!
