A quiet farewell

You cannot go much quieter, yet more profoundly than Tim Duncan. An iconic figure in the entire sports world, not just basketball, Duncan has left a mark all his own on a sport he played for the majority of his life, including 19 seasons in the NBA. Each of those seasons were with the San Antonio Spurs. Timothy Theodore Duncan was born in Christiansted, U.S. Virgin Islands over 40 years ago. Growing up on the island of Saint Croix, Duncan aspired to be an Olympic swimmer with his mind set on qualifying for the 1992 United States team. He was particularly impressive in the 50, 100 and 400 meter freestyle disciplines.

By Robert Proctor

Audrey Simpson, a 2015 graduate of Cuero High School, is returning to Texas to continue her college softball career. Following a year at Murray State College in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, Simpson has joined the Howard Payne Lady Jackets of Brownwood. Being that Murray State is a junior college, Simpson had started looking this past spring for potential schools to transfer to after her sophomore season. It turned out that Howard Payne is in need of pitching and also has a business program, which Simpson found to her liking.

More than football

By Robert Proctor

Wimbledon, Euro Cup, Summer Olympics and everything in-between: they may only be a filler, as many await the much-anticipated start to the ensuing football season. For some though, the lawn at the All-England Tennis Club brings excitement; European football, or soccer as we refer to it in America, is much more than kicking a ball into a net and the Summer Olympics only come along once every four years, so you should soak in each event.
