COWBOYS END EMOTIONAL WEEK WITH A LOSS TO END THE SEASON
The Cowboys closed out its 2013 campaign with a 46-34 loss to Louisiana College on Saturday afternoon at Shelton Stadium. It was a very hard fought game under very trying circumstances and 18 seniors who were playing their final game for the Cowboys played very well. HSU finished the year with a record of 4-6 and 2-4 in ASC play but the record is not indicative of the level of play. The scores of the games never told the entire story. These young men played hard and there is no doubt, this hard work and perseverance will pay off as they move forward in their respective careers.
As the season comes to an end I would like to thank my fellow officers for all the work they did this year. Our goal at the start of the year was to raise some money to help out the football program and keep parents informed as to what was happening on campus. With the help of HSU folks like Kim McPhail and Chad Grubbs, I think we accomplished both goals. I am looking forward to another great season next year and even though this is the final football game of the year, it won't be the final message from the Parents Group. We will be sending out periodic emails and mail outs throughout the off season and I will also be updating the Parents Group page here on the website. It won't be updated weekly like during the season but it will be updated so please check back.
Currently the Parents Group officers are top heavy with Junior and Senior parents so we need volunteers for next year to help out. If you are interested in being an officer and helping out, please email Beth Harris or myself at the emails listed below. You don't need to live in Abilene to volunteer. This organization doesn't take much of your time but we do need help every so often so don't be shy about volunteering.
