Eight 2013 graduating high school senior athletes â€” plus a pair of coaches â€” from Nolan County will be participating in three Fellowship of Christian Athletes area all-star games this week as they get a final taste of athletic competition before officially ending their high school careers.
Seven of the athletes â€” Tadeo Canon-Masjoan, Shelby Cason, Kelsi Cros-son, Kendra Crosson, Ryan Linebaugh, Nick Nemir and Suede Shirley â€” are from Sweetwater as are both coaches, Shane Mobley and Liz Miller. Also participating this week will be Landon Jones of Roscoe.
Former Sweetwater High School athlete Gregg Ruffin was recently named Wylieâ€™s head boys basketball coach following the resignation of Russell Perkins in May.
Ruffin was a three-sport athlete at SHS and in 1991 led the basketball team to its first district title in 29 years. He also starred in football and track and later played college basketball at Hardin-Simmons Universi-ty from 1991-95 before starting his coaching career.
For the past 16 years, he has served as an assistant basketball coach at Wylie as well as an assistant coach in baseball and football.
