All guts and glory – How Thomas feeds a beast

A column by Daniel Elizondo, editor

Emotions ran high on Friday night after the senior assured the coaches that he could win the game by scoring on a two-point conversion to help Silsbee advance to the regional finals.

It was a gutsy call for the young man. But it was also a gutsy chance the coaches took – because they knew he could do it.

And that’s just what Thomas brings to a team that reached the regional finals for the first time since 1998.
