Running and Fitness: Debunking the myth about body types

Running with Moe

I heard from a friend this week that had an unusual story. She graduated from Texas State a few years ago and eventually went on to earn her doctorate degree.

High School Football: Rattlers pegged to reach playoffs by Dave Campbell's Texas Football

Daily Record Sports

San Marcos can expect to make a leap this upcoming season.

At least according to the 2015 edition of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine, which hits stores today. The Rattlers were pegged to clinch a playoff berth and finish fourth in District 27-5A behind Kerrville-Tivy, Boerne-Champion and Alamo Heights.

Last season, the Rattlers were also predicted to finish fourth by Dave Campbell’s (DCTF), but many factors — namely entering a new district and learning a new offense — perhaps made that proclamation a year too soon.

Ever since the start of the season, Paul Goldschmidt has been wreaking havoc for major league pitchers.

And while it took some time before the fans took notice, the Arizona Diamondback first baseman has now distanced himself from the rest of the pack in All-Star voting.

As of the latest tally, which was released by Major League Baseball’s communications office on Tuesday, Goldschmidt had garnered 3,562,399 votes, which gives him a lead of nearly 900,000 over second-place Adrian Gonzales among first baseman.

Sports Editor

From the start, it has been clear that Texas State has targeted pitching on the recruiting trail.

After all, the Bobcats’ depth at that position has been depleted after the past two seasons. Texas State has had four pitchers selected in the most recent two drafts, namely Austen Williams and Taylor Black in 2014 as well as Lucas Humpal and Scott Grist during this month’s MLB First-Year Player Draft.
