Hays, under Feldt, dominates Del Valle BY JASON GOROON RliOll] BY JODY COORBI Hays head coach Erica Walther singled out Emi- ly Clark's leadership during the Lady Rebels' run to the consclation-bracket finals at the North- side ISD toumament last weekend. Hays went on to beat Dnpping Springs Monday night. I Jtmt whon it mppt _ d that tnj es be the story of Hays High's first scrimmage against DelValle, the Rebels showed signs of exactly what new head coach Blake Feldt has been talking about since he arrived on campus in March. The Rebs were running on offense, attacking on defense and for the most part completely shut down a Class 5A Del Valle team at Shelton Stadi- um Saturday morning. Despite the fact center Boone Feldt missed the scrimmage with a stinger in his shoulder, first-team slot receiver Taven Mayberry was out with an abdominal strain, fellow first-team slot receiver Michael Romero was limited by a sprained ankle and starting quarterback Caleb Kimbro played only the first series of the contest before being sidelined the rest of the day with a pulled calf muscle, the rest of the Rebels picked up the slack.

He will look to break them during Angiuano, his teammates and his lis senior season this fall.coaches believe this will be the Lo- bos' breakout year. Lehman is field- ing the biggest, most experienced and most talented team since the school began playing football in 2006, but for the Lobes to reach their goal of a playoff run, Angi- uano must be the one to lead them there. "Your quarterback is the key to your offensive success," said headl coach Steve Davis, who was West- lake's offensiye coordinator whenu current New Orleans Saints quar- terback Drew Brees led the Chaps to the state title in 1996. "Matt needs to have a good year and distribute the ball all across the board." Davis, who is also the team's quarterbacks coach, praised Angi- uano's performance during 7-on-7 play this summer and said he was proud of his quarterback's weight training over the o~on as well. "He's just gotten better and bet- ter," Davis said. "His arm strength is better. He worked hard in the weight room, and he was able to put more velocity on the ball when he throws." Angiuano said he put in the time in the weight room after getting banged up last season. He wanted to become bigger and stronger so he wouldn't put himself in a similar situation this year. But all the weight training served an additional purpose, he added. "If I put in the time," Angiuano said, "then the offensive line and the offense would too." The Lobes are fielding 24 se- niors this season, their most ever, and many of the guys share strong bonds after playing together for the past few seasons. The senior quar- terback's leadership by example has encouraged his teammates to give their best efforts too, according to senior running back Levi Medley. "He's hardworking, smart, an ath- lete," Medley said. "When we don't do a good job, he'll let us know, and he'll help us fix it." When not playing football, An- giuano likes to rodeo. His sport is team roping, which shares some similarities to being a quarterback. "There axe a lot of pressure situ- ations when a championship is on the line," he said of team roping. "It's the same here" on the football field. As for all those Lehman football records, they might not last long. Anguino will be out to set new stan- dards this season. "Hopefully he'll have a great year," Davis said, "and we'll have to replace the record signs." #
