  • Hawks ready to roll in Armes’...

    In his 17th and what he states will be his final year of coaching Hawks varsity football, Head Coach Rodney Armes has a philosophy about his athletes’ efforts on the football field – “Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.”

    Lauren Clark still marvels at how her barrel racing career has worked out so well.

    Especially since her favorite – and top prize-winning horse – was bought by mistake.
