Sam Nemir (seated at table), a senior at Sweetwater High School, has committed to play college football at Hardin-Simmons University. A ceremony was held to announce Nemirâ€™s decision Wednesday morning at the high school library. Among those who attended were members of Nemirâ€™s family. They included brothers Nick (far left) and Max as well as mother Marina and father Gordon. Nick, a junior, and Sam played together on the 2011 varsity football team at SHS with both winning all-district and all-Big Country recognition. Sam was a two-year starter at both fullback and linebacker, and he led the Mustangs in tackles as a senior.
