The Plowboys remained undefeated in district play with a big win over the Seagraves Eagles, 39-23, at Plowboy Field Friday night. If the Plowboys defeat Tahoka this Friday, the win most likely will set up a showdown with undefeated Hamlin for the district championship on the last regular game of the season.

The Plowboys didn’t waste time jumping out to an early lead against Seagraves, scoring quickly on their first two drives and making three touchdowns in the first quarter. Francisco Garcia made the first TD on a three-yard run. Juan Solis kicked the extra point, and the Plowboys were ahead 7-0. The second came shortly thereafter on a 12-yard pass play from Brayden Beal to Jose Ortega, and the Solis extra-point kick made the score 14-0. Later, Beal threw another scoring pass to Ortega, this one for 30 yards, and with the extra point the Plowboys took a commanding 21-0 lead.

The Plowboys extended their lead to 27-0 in the second quarter when Beal hit Ortega again for another touchdown, this time on a 26-yard pass play. However, the extra-point kick was blocked, and Seagraves’ Longoria scooped it up and ran it back all the way for the Eagles’ first points of the evening. This gave them momentum, and they followed with two touchdowns before the half, one on a 54-yard pass and the other on a three-yard run. With the extra points, they now trailed the Plowboys only by eleven points, 27-16, and were back in the game.

However, the Plowboys scored first in the third quarter on another Beal pass to Ortega, a play that covered 38 yards. The extra-point try was no good, but the Plowboys once again had an imposing lead, 33-16. But Seagraves came back with another TD of their own, and as the third quarter ended, they were still in the game, trailing by only ten points, 33-23.

The Plowboy defense held them scoreless for the rest of the way, however, and the last TD of the game was on an 11-yard run by Garcia, making the final score 39-23.

Here is the scoring by quarters:

Plowboys          21          6        6          6 – 39
Seagraves           0         16       7          0 – 23

Francisco Garcia led the Plowboy rushers with 27 carries for 117 yards and 2 TDs. Brayden Beal had a good game passing with 11 completions of 18 attempts and 4 TDs, all of them to Jose Ortega. Ortega led the receivers with 6 receptions for 128 yards, while Clemente Aguayo had 3 catches for 51 yards.

Defensively, Parker Payne had 9 tackles with 2 for losses and one forced fumble. Ortega had 11 tackles, 3 for losses; Austin Willman had 8 tackles, Nick Limones had 5 and an interception, and Aguayo had 5, 2 of them for losses.

The Plowboys will be favored when they play Tahoka in Tahoka Friday evening. The Bulldogs are currently 4-4 on the year and the Plowboys 5-3, but the Plowboys are 3-0 in district while the Bulldogs are 1-2 with big losses to Seagraves and Hamlin, who beat them 63-7 and 60-6 respectively. However, they will be playing on their home field and they do have four victories, so the Plowboys will need to be ready to play.

Kickoff is at 7:00pm.



The Plowgirls' Cross Country team advances to the Regional Meet after finishing second in the divisional meet in Hamlin. They are left to right: Jaleigh Morales, Mariann Rainey, Jaci Alexander, Karina Cisneros, Lyndi Wilkinson, Bonnie Wilkinson, Jovana Pena, and Allison Acebedo.
The Plowgirls’ Cross Country Team and Plowboy Alfonzo Islas, by virtue of their second-place finishes in the district meet at Hamlin last week, are off to the Region I Cross-Country Meet at Mae Simmons Park in Lubbock on Friday.



Roscoe’s High School robotics team, the Plowbots, who finished second in the recent HUB meet, will compete in the Regional Championships at Monterrey High School this weekend.



Fall clouds over Roscoe on Sunday evening.
The weather has been mild, sunny, and beautiful all week with mild temperatures that save everyone money on heating and cooling. Since last Thursday the highest high was 83°F on Sunday and the lowest high was 73° last Thursday and Friday. The highest low was 65° yesterday morning and the lowest low was 43° on Thursday. A couple of days had partly cloudy skies, but they generally last all day. In short, the weather was mild in the ways we remember fondly during the heat of summer and the cold of winter. Also, the lack of rain allowed farmers in the area to gather their harvest without break.

The forecast is for slightly warmer weather in the coming week. Highs will be in the mid to upper eighties, and lows in the low to mid-sixties. The only possibilities for rain in the coming days are the 10% chances on Thursday and Friday.

West Texas Wind Festival This Saturday

Cooder Graw, this year's featured band for the free concert and street dance.
Plans are being finalized for the tenth annual West Texas Wind Festival, and organizers are expecting a large crowd, especially for the free concert and the fireworks show. The weather is predicted to cooperate with sunny skies and a high in the upper eighties.

As usual, the downtown streets will be lined with vendors all afternoon and evening, and the Roscoe Historical Museum will be open. The Roscoe Express Shuttle will also be on hand to take people to and from selected parking areas and downtown all afternoon at no charge. Cooks will be barbecuing around the Fire House and Community Center most of the day.

The South Austin Moonlighters will open the free concert at 6:00pm.
Music for the free concert and street dance in Cypress Street will begin at six with the South Austin Moonlighters. They are a group of established musicians and songwriters who consider themselves and their music “True Americana,” a band that blends country, blues, folk, and rock. They are regulars at such Austin venues as The Saxon Pub and Threadgill’s, and Gruene Hall, just up the road. Singles include “You, Love, & Me,” “To Love Somebody,” and “Little Rain.”

They’ll be followed by about fifteen minutes of announcements and the cookoff results.

Then at around eight, Cooder Graw will take the stage. This band refers to its country/alternative  music as “loud country.” Best known for its song “Llano Estacado,” the group formed in 1998 and, unlike most bands, was made up from the start of members in their late thirties to early fifties. The lead singer, Matt Martindale, was the assistant DA of Gray County and guitarist Kelly Turner managed a manufacturing plant in Slaton.

They originally called themselves Coup de Grace, but since another band already had that name, they changed theirs to the Texas pronunciation of the original name, Cooder Graw. They produced several CDs, their first being Home at the Golden Light and toured extensively, becoming a major influence on the Texas scene, but in 2006 they broke up with a couple of members going back to their previous professions. Then in 2012, they got back together again, picked up two new members and have been performing ever since. Since re-uniting, they have produced two CDs, Front of House Live, and their latest CD, Cooder Graw: Love to Live By. Videos that exemplify their style include "Better Days," "Llano Estacado," "Motel Lights," and their latest, "Love to Live By."

The fireworks show will follow Cooder Graw’s performance at about 9:40 and conclude this year’s Wind Festival, although those who aren’t ready to go home yet can move over to the Lumberyard, where the music and celebration will go on until midnight.  There will be no cover charge.

Here are details for the RVFD Steak Cookoff and Plowboy Mudbog:

Plowboy Mudbog

As always, mudboggers will be coming in from as far away as Hobbs, NM, the Panhandle, and several area towns to try their vehicles in Roscoe’s blackland mud, so competition will be fierce.

Registration for entrants begins at 9:30am Saturday morning at the northwest corner of George Parks Baseball Field at Second and Sycamore Streets.  The driver entry fee is $30.

Entries will be in six classes:

1.    Street: 35” tires and under with limited engine modification
2.    Super Street: 35” with engine vac under 13”
3.    Modified: 36” to 39” with limited engine modification
4.    Super Modified: 36” to 39” with engine vac under 13”
5.    Open: 40” and over.
6.    Tractor Wheels  

Since there’s an advantage in going last rather than first, each mud vehicle makes two runs, with the second run in reverse order from the first. Street and Super Street classes will do both their runs first, and then the rest of the classes will follow in order.

The public gate will open at 11:00am with the mudbog competition beginning at noon.  Admission is $5 for adults (17 and older) and $3 for kids (11-17), with free admission for children (10 and under).  Proceeds from gate and concession stand will benefit the Roscoe Volunteer Fire Department.

Time permitting, there will also be a Plowboy Mudbog “Dash for Cash,” an entertaining event featuring kids running through knee-deep mud.

Spectators are encouraged to bring sun block, canopy, and lawn chairs. For more information, see the Plowboy Mudbog Facebook page, or contact Felix Pantoja at 325-514-8384.

For more information, contact Gary Armstrong at 325-235-4110.

9:40pm – Fireworks Show
10:00pm – Event Ends



For the second week in a row, the Plowboys faced a weak team that was no match for them. They jumped out to a 21-0 lead over Roby in the first quarter and never looked back as they amassed a 45-0 lead at halftime, causing the coaches to agree to run the clock nonstop in a shortened second half.

It’s hard to fault Roby’s players. They do the best they can with what they have, but their high school enrollment is just a little over half of Roscoe’s (and less than half of Seagraves’ and Tahoka’s), and they just don’t have that many players to choose from. For the past two or three years, they’ve been hanging on, hoping for some increase in enrollment, I suppose. However, it’s just not happening, and, like Rotan did a couple of years ago, they’re going to have to face reality and go six-man if they ever want to have any future football success.

And it will be sad when it happens, just as it was with Rotan. Over the decades, the rivalries between the Plowboys and their Fisher County neighbors to the north have always been spirited, resulting in some great games—with the Plowboys winning some and the Lions or Yellowhammers winning others. But school enrollments are constantly changing, some growing while others shrink. And Roby is unfortunately one of the latter.

All three Plowboy TDs in the first quarter were pass plays, the first an 8-yarder from Brayden Beal to Diego Garza, the second a 27-yarder from Beal to Francisco Garcia, and the third a 64-yarder from Beal to Garza. In the second quarter, Garza scored on a 10-yard run, Clemente Aguayo scored on a 1-yard pass from Beal, and Garcia scored on a 2-yard run.

Then, Juan Garcia kicked a 35-yard field goal to make the score 45-0. That’s a pretty good distance for a high school kicker. Garcia was also 7 for 7 with his extra-point kicks, so it appears that the Plowboys now have a competent kicking game, which will be an asset as they move into more competitive games.

Francisco Garcia also scored in the third quarter on a 1-yard run to finish the Plowboy scoring, followed by Roby’s lone touchdown in the game.

The scoring by quarters was like this:

Plowboys          21        24        7          0
Roby                   0          0        8          0

For the evening, Brayden Beal completed 17 of 27 passes with no interceptions for 249 yards and 4 TDs. Francisco Garcia ran 11 times for 52 yards and 3 TDs, and Diego Garza ran twice for 20 yards. Garza led all receivers with 4 catches for 89 yards and 2 TDs, Junior Martinez caught 2 for 58 yards, Garcia 4 for 49 and 1 TD, Aguayo 4 for 46 and 1 TD, and Jose Ortega 2 for 6.

On defense, Juan Garcia and Tait Fullwood both had 5 tackles, Matt Buckley 3, Austin Willman and Jose Ortega 2, and several players had one.

The Plowboys are now 3-3 on the season and 1-0 in district play.

The Plowboys play their second district game this week with Plains in Plains. Why we’re in a district with Plains is beyond me because it’s 158 miles from Roscoe, so it will be a long trip for the players, band, and cheerleaders, as well as Plowboy fans making the trip. The Cowboys are 2-4 so far this year with victories over Smyer and San Jacinto Christian Academy (Amarillo). They are 0-1 in district, coming off a bad loss to Hamlin in Hamlin last week 55-0.

As with all district games this year, kickoff will be at 7:00pm.



City Manager Cody Thompson reports to the City Council.
At its monthly meeting at City Hall yesterday evening, the Roscoe City Council heard City Manager Cody Thompson report that the bidding schedule for sanitary sewer line improvements has been set. He also reported on other current City projects, and Roscoe Police Chief Felix Pantoja gave the Police Report for the month of September. The Council then passed some routine action items before adjourning.

Thompson has set the schedule for obtaining a contract for the sanitary sewer line improvements. As required by law, public notice will be given twice, once on October 14 and once on October 21, in the Sweetwater Reporter. Bidding will open on November 3, and the City Council will award the bid at its next monthly meeting on November 8.

Thompson reminded the Council that with the new fiscal year beginning on October 1, the $8 monthly raise for City water will be reflected on the November bills. Tax statements and cemetery donation requests will also go out.

City workers have mowed the cemetery and clean-up there is ongoing. Someone has volunteered to paint the gateway to the entrance to the cemetery. City workers are also making an extra effort to clean up the town this week for Saturday’s Tenth Annual West Texas Wind Festival.

Police Chief Felix Pantoja reported that the Department received 116 calls during the month of September and had two vehicle crash reports, as well as a report of an attempted kidnapping. The Department also managed to recover two shotguns stolen from a break-in at one of the Pecan Street Apartments.

Pantoja also reported that on Monday RHS alum and ex-marine Damian Deleon graduated from the West Central Texas Law Enforcement Academy in Abilene. He has now been employed to a full-time position with the Sweetwater Police Department.

The City Council then approved the 2015-16 fourth quarter investment report. They also granted a fireworks permit for the West Texas Wind Festival and approved the closing of downtown streets for the same event.



The Roscoe Police Department is placing on inactive status the alleged attempted kidnapping case reported September 28 by an Elementary student of RCISD.

Thanks to the help and quick response by the Department of Public Safety, Nolan County Sheriff’s Department, Sweetwater Police Department, and TSTC Police Department, extreme efforts were made to apprehend the purported suspect.

There have been no witnesses nor additional information to substantiate the student statement. RCISD appears to have sufficient security to prevent such an occurrence from taking place.

Felix Pantoja, Chief
Roscoe Police Department



Clear skies at dawn this morning.
The mild, dry weather from last week continued into this one, and we have had some beautiful, sunny days. There hasn’t been a cloud in the sky for two days, and today should be no different. Weekend temperatures were mild with a 73°F high on Friday, 71° on Saturday, and 76° on Sunday with lows around 50°. On Monday the high rose to 81° and yesterday to 88°. Today it should reach 90° before a front moves through dropping tomorrow morning’s low to 51° and tomorrow’s high to only 70°.

The heat will return on Friday, however, with a projected high of 85° and 90° for the Wind Festival on Saturday. Sunday’s high should reach 93° and Monday’s a blistering 95°. Lows will be in the upper sixties.

There is a 20% chance of showers tomorrow and Friday, 0% otherwise.



Gaynell (Cleckler) High, 83, passed away in Sweetwater Saturday, October 8, 2016. Services are pending with McCoy Funeral Home in Sweetwater.

Menard No Challenge for Plowboys, 62-0

Francisco Garcia races into the end zone for a TD in the first quarter.
This is a game that probably shouldn’t have been played. Last year, Menard and the Plowboys were both undefeated in district when they met in Menard to decide the championship. And, although the Yellowjackets were a pretty good team otherwise, they couldn’t cover the pass, and the Plowboys beat them handily, 49-13. But that was last year, when they were a senior-heavy team. This year, they are rebuilding and came into Roscoe with an 0-5 bunch that might be a good match for our JV boys. In short, it was no contest.

The Plowboys scored the first two TDs before many fans had found a place to sit. On their first possession, Francisco Garcia broke through the middle and ran 41 yards to paydirt, and after a Juan Solis extra-point kick, the Plowboys were up 7-0. After the kickoff, the Plowboys intercepted a pass and were right back in business. They quickly moved down the field, Garcia went over from the 5, and with another Solis kick Roscoe was up 14-0. Fewer than four minutes were gone on the clock, and the Plowboys had already made clear who would win this game. A short time later, they scored again on a 13-yard pass from Brayden Beal to Jose Ortega, and the first quarter ended with the Plowboys ahead 21-0.

The second quarter was no different. Garcia scored two more touchdowns, running through large holes and breaking tackles, and Diego Garza made two more, both on 13-yard passes from Beal. The defense held the Yellowjackets to only two first downs for the entire half, and the halftime score was 49-0.

The Menard coaches threw in the towel, and in the 11-man version of the mercy rule agreed to let the clock run without stopping for the entire second half. Consequently, the half was quickly over but not before the Plowboys scored two more TDs to make the final score 62-0.

Scoring by quarters was as follows:

Roscoe             21        28        7          6 – 62
Menard              0          0       0          0  –  0

Francisco Garcia led all Plowboy rushers with 135 yards on 12 carries, Jayden Gonzales had 58 on 4 carries, Nick Limones 1 carry for 31, Diego Garza 4 for 7, Brayden Beal 1 for 3, and Jose Ortega 1 for 2. Passing, Beal completed 11 of 15 passes for 228 yards, 0 interceptions, and 4 TDs; and Gonzales had 1 for 1 for 20 yards. Ortega led Plowboy receivers with 4 catches for 118 yards and 2 TDs, Garza had 4 for 81 and 2 TDs, Limones had 1 for 20, Garcia 2 for 19, and Junior Martinez 1 for 10.

On defense, Clemente Aguayo and Tristan Brooks led all tacklers, each with 6, while Tait Fullwood had 5. Several others had 2 and many others 1.

Roscoe is now 2-3 on the year.

Roscoe plays its first district game against Roby in Roby on Friday. It should be a soft opening because like Menard, the Lions are struggling this year. They are currently 0-5 and lost to Springlake-Earth 27-0 last Friday. Their closest game so far was a 34-32 loss to Ranger on September 9.

Kickoff is at 7:00pm. Please note that because of the distances between the schools this year, all district games will begin at 7:00 instead of 7:30.

The Roscoe Police Department is investigating an alleged attempted kidnapping that occurred at approximately 4:00pm on Wednesday, September 28, at Roscoe School. An Elementary School student stated to Roscoe Police that a skinny, white male with long, black hair in a ponytail attempted to carry the student away from in front of the school cafeteria area. The student said that the suspect was not in a vehicle.

Police Chief Felix Pantoja called in help from other law enforcement agencies, including the Nolan County Sheriff’s Office, Department of Public Safety, Sweetwater Police Department, and TSTC Police Department, to help locate the suspect and provide extra patrol for the safety of the community.

The student could not provide additional information nor have any witnesses come forward in this incident. The case is still under investigation.

Also, on Friday night, September 23, the Roscoe Police Department received a call saying students were on top of the school buildings. Upon arrival, Officer D. Summers located and detained four juveniles. He then contacted a school representative, who requested he arrest them and file charges.  He then contacted the legal guardians of each. The juveniles were cited and then released to their guardians.



The Charlie Daniels Band put on a great show for over two thousand people at the Lumberyard Saturday night. The weather was just about perfect, and Charlie Daniels, who will celebrate his eightieth birthday later this month, played his fiddle, sang, and performed with an energy that belied his age.

This video is of his signature song, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.” It was his final song of the show.

The Community Center will have its regular session board meeting this coming Monday, October 10, at 7:00pm at the Center. We still need volunteers!



A new day in old Roscoe.

When we got the big rain and cool spell recently, I heard several people say they hoped the sun would come back out and warm everything up. Those who did got their wish this past week—because that’s exactly what happened. Since Saturday, highs have been in the eighties and skies have been sunny. Yesterday afternoon, the high reached 89°F, today’s should hit 92°, and tomorrow’s should be around 89°. Lows will be in the sixties.

However, on Friday everything will change, and we’ll back into cooler and rainier weather as a cold front arrives. The high Friday will reach only about 65°, and there will be a 60% chance of rain on Friday morning. Once the front moves through, though, the sun will come back out and temperatures will once again rise to afternoons of 80° or more with morning lows in the lower sixties.
