Iâ€™ve been around the game of football my whole life; whether it meant playing catch with my dad and my older brother in the backyard, watching football on Sundays with my grandfather, or actually playing on the field under the â€śFriday Night Lights.â€ť As summer came to an end and I started to realize that my senior year was beginning to get closer, I began to think about all the ways my life is about to change. I became excited that this will be the last time I go to football camp and run through drills on the hottest days of summer.

The outdoor tennis courts at Tomahawk Park have received a face lift - thanks in part to a generous donation from a local citizen.
At a council meeting in May in which discussion ensued on the scope of the project to refurbish the tennis courts, Dr. Lance Jones gave more than his two cents worth on the project - in fact, he felt so strongly about the importance of preserving the three outdoor courts that he donated $5,000 of his own money to the city to do it.
