Blackwell to begin Athletic Shift Life Skills Camp

Whether it’s Stanford University, the NFL or Baylor University right here in Texas, you don’t have to look far to find an example of how an athlete has ruined his career by engaging in questionable or illegal behavior. In the most egregious cases, they have ruined their lives. As a former high school and college standout as well as an NFL alum, Alois Blackwell is disheartened by these stories – so much so that he has decided that it’s time to stop talking about it and do something about it. As a result, Blackwell has developed the Athletic Shift Life Skills Camp. The purpose of this half-day camp, designed for high school football players, is to teach life skills that will enhance their athletic experience and assist them in navigating the potential pitfalls that can prevent them from achieving their personal best on and off the field.

Lady Gobbler volleyball beckons

Volleyball season is less than one week away, and the Cuero Lady Gobblers are ready to pick up from where they left off last year. The Lady Gobblers narrowly missed reaching the playoffs but return six varsity players including four seniors. “All of the girls from the end of the season last year were really ready for the next one, because we were in such a tough district, and we felt like we competed hard,” coach Whitney Coles said. “If we would’ve had the chance to go to the playoffs, we would have done really well because of the competition we had in that district. I think the girls have just been ready to go  since then and kinda had a little bit of a fire within them. The new  district is gonna be interesting, and I think that we’re gonna make some noise.”

Summer Olympics: Take the Leap

Over the next few weeks, leading up to and during the Summer Olympics, I will talk about some ‘lesser-known’ sports. To clarify, lesser-known embodies the fact that these sports are rarely talked about, if at all, outside of their involvement and leading up to the Olympics. U.S. women’s gymnastics will open this slate. Many may be under the impression that gymnasts are only women, but men compete, too. The women, though, are the more well-known.
