Construction: Plans for Strahan Coliseum renovation are moving along

Sports Editor

Say goodbye to The Wall.

Yes, the monstrous, maroon barrier in the east end of Strahan Coliseum, which has drawn the ire of fans and players alike, won’t be around for much longer.

Well, at least if the current plans for the renovation of Strahan Coliseum move forward as anticipated.

Texas State’s athletic department hopes to present a final design for the Strahan Coliseum project to the board of curators sometime next year and break ground on construction shortly thereafter.

High School Baseball: Rattlers' David Hamilton named second team All-State

Daily Record Sports

Chalk up another accolade for David Hamilton.

While his mind is probably on the gridiron or perhaps even summer vacation, the San Marcos junior has one more honor to add from last season. For the second consecutive campaign, Hamilton was named to the Texas High School Baseball Coaches All-State Team.

The rising senior was penned third-team THSBCA All-State after posting a .398 batting average and team-high 29 RBI and 10 triples during his junior season. He made the first team last season as a sophomore.

Outdoors: Cooking your catch is part of the experience


In my opinion, cooking some of your catch is a major element of the fishing experience.

Bass fishermen have been educated to catch and release so often that some guys consider killing a fish almost a sin.

Take Lake Bastrop, for example.  

Most of the bass caught at the best bass lake in Texas will be in the slot. All bass between 14 and 21 inches are protected. They must be released, but five small fish per fishermen under the 14 inches may be retained to eat.

Editor’s Note: This story was originally published in the summer edition of Texas Campbell’s Texas Football.

There is a phrase that head coach Dennis Franchione uses to describe the players who fit well at Texas State.

He calls them “our kind of guy.”

In other words, the Bobcats seek out players who have a chip on their shoulders.

Well, it would be hard to find someone who fits that saying better than senior wide receiver Jafus Gaines.

Texas State might be the best kept secret in the state.

At least according to Dave Campbell’s Texas Football.

The magazine not only ranked the Bobcats ninth in the Texas power poll ahead of UTSA, North Texas and SMU, but named five players to the All-Texas College Teams.

Senior offensive tackle Adrian Bellard and senior cornerback David Mims were named to the first team while junior quarterback Tyler Jones, senior running back Robert Lowe and senior linebacker Trey McGowan were named to the second team.
