NFL

Johnny Manziel says he “made somewhat of a decent living” by selling autographed items during his days at Texas A&M, but that he “never took a dollar” until after he won the Heisman Trophy in 2012. Manziel recounted selling his autograph during an interview on Barstool Sports’ “Bussin’ With The Boys” podcast, detailing two different transactions in 2013 that he says netted him $33,000.

HIGH SCHOOL

Sulphur Springs School Board approved Brandon Shaver as the Wildcat’s new Head Basketball Coach. Last two years, the New Diana native Shaver headed the program at Pine Tree. He replaces Coach Chipoletta, who travels to Allen as their basketball coach after becoming Sulphur Springs’ most successful coach in Wildcats’ history. Defensive Coordinator Alex Guerra travels to Edgewood as their head football coach next year. Internally Kirk McCain replaces him as Defensive coordinator.

Yesterday, the Rains Lady Cats defeated Diboll for the Class 3A state championship 11-5. Their first title was in 2019, and COVID put a halt to their winning last year. Diboll made school history with its first trip to the UIL state tournament ending a phenomenal campaign 34-6. Congratulations, Coach Hayland Hardy of Diboll and Coach Scott Delozier of Rains.
