Best of the Best head to state

20110225_VMHS_Wrestling_Regionals_RudyGonzalez_PaulBRICK_8736-2There may not be a more demanding sport than wrestling. Constantly fighting to stay in shape through intense workouts, healthy eating and head-on combat with determined opponents is not the lifestyle everyone signs up for. Add in the psychological battle of one-on-one competition and you have a sport that demands not only physical intensity, but in the mind as well.


Ramos and fellow seniors ready to lead the Rattlers

20110218_Sharyland-v-Rowe-Boys-Basketball_015Bring on the Longhorns. Again.

For the third straight year, Laredo United and Sharyland will face each other in bi-district.

For the third straight year, Sharyland is hoping to not exit the playoffs at the hands of the Longhorns. Certainly the Rattler seniors are not ready to go down that path.


30-5A BOYS BASKETBALL: Ramos seals the deal for Sharyland

20110211-SharylandvLaJoyaSHARYLAND -- There was a lot of passion at Sharyland High School Friday night. It was thick and it was desperate. Amidst it all, Fred Ramos ignored it as the senior recorded 29 points to help his team sweep the season series with the La Joya by beating Coyotes 69-53. With the win the Rattlers secured the fourth and final spot in District 30-5A.

"I just wanted to give it my all," said Ramos. "I think [as a team] we came out with the intensity that we had been looking for all season."


Don't mess with Rudy

20110205_Rudy-Gonzalez-Wrestling_001It is hard not to think of the name Rudy and not think of the underdog former football player from Notre Dame who overcame adversity to make the Irish roster. The name has become synonymous with the overachieving underdog.

For Veterans Memorial High School, they have a Rudy of their own, with a slight twist. Senior Rudy Gonzalez is the Patriot's star wrestler, not an underdog. In last weekend's (Saturday and Monday) District 31-5A championships, Rudy took home the title in the 125-lb. weight class. Of course, if you know this wrestler, you know a district championship routine for the star athlete. Rudy has now won back-to-back-to-back-to-back district championships. When it comes to the district, there is no underdog in this Rudy.
