Caden Smith of Roscoe was named on Sunday by the Abilene Reporter-News to its All-Big Country Football Super Team as a defensive lineman.
Smith, a 6-3, 240-pound senior, recorded 109 tackles this season and received honorable mention all-state honors. He also received honorable mention as a quarterback on the All-Big Country Class 1A team.
Three Sweetwater players â€” tight end Connor Stafford, linebacker B.J. Walker and defensive back Cameron Fox â€” received honorable mention last week to the Class 3A-5A All-Big Country Football Team announced by the Abilene Reporter-News.
Stafford caught 14 passes for the Mustangs, while Walker recorded 88 tackles and Fox had three intercep-tions, eight passes defended and three fumbles forced or recovered. In addition, Walker ran for 650 yards.
Three nights after nearly shooting Big Spring out of its own gym in a 24-point road win, the Sweetwater girls basketball team was forced to go inside to stay with state-ranked Brown-wood here Friday.
The new strategy worked pretty well for most of the evening as the teamâ€™s starting posts, Kendra Crosson and Alicia Finn, both scored in double figures for the Lady Mustangs. But Brown-woodâ€™s outside shooting â€” and Sara Byrd in particular â€” was the difference as the No. 21 Lady Lions took con-trol in the second half to pull out a 46-39 win.
