Coach Reid’s new program aimed at teaching life skills to athletes meets with success

For Groesbeck’s Chris Reid, being a basketball coach not only involves a love for the game that goes along with the competitive nature of the sport, but he also realizes that the “ball will not bounce forever” and with that thought in mind, the more important aspect he sees in his job is to contribute something lasting to the lives of the young men he coaches ... something that will stick with them beyond the wins and losses.

Isbell signs football letter of intent with Sam Houston State

By Stephen R. Farris
 
Groesbeck athletic director/head football coach, Bruce Mc- Donald, gave high praise to his former offensive lineman, Macade Isbell, as the senior leader signed his letter of intent to play college football for Sam Houston State University last Thursday during a ceremony held for him in the Groesbeck Gym. Isbell was a key leader for the Goats football team, putting in a lot of hard work both on the fi eld and in the classroom. While entertaining offers from several other colleges, Isbell liked what he saw at SHSU when he visited the campus not too long ago. His parents, Lewis and Sarah Isbell, also like the fact Macade decided to play for the university, especially since they’ll have the opportunity to see him play on a regular basis with the campus less than two hours away.
