This could be the second unbeaten regular season under the tutelage of head football coach Wes Shank at Miyamura High School. That is quite an accomplishment for a town like Gallup, even though they are not consecutive seasons, not known for its prowess on the gridiron.

For the girls team, it is a spark plug freshman, Kennedy Smiley, who has already earned one Player of the Game Award this season. To be honest, I have not seen her play but I understand that she covers the field well and gives the opponents fits from whatever position she plays. Keep me informed on her progress as I likely will not attend too many games this month.
