NH promotes Tucker to athletic director post

Hop, skip and a jump — just a few of the skills Coach Larry Tucker teaches students at North Hopkins ISD, but on Aug. 5, Tucker took a leap of his own into the athletic director position.

The school recently promoted coach Larry Tucker to fill the vacancy of long-time coach Tim Menke.

“I feel fortunate to be here at North Hopkins and appreciate the opportunity given to me by Mrs. George, Mr. Wilson and the school board,” said Tucker on his recent promotion. “We have a solid coaching staff. Each one of our coaches is more concerned with our students' well-being than they are just winning, and that is important to me. We want our kids to be successful human beings when they leave us.”

Upon further review: Wildcats had many positive performances despite losing 28-14 in football opener

Despite dropping the opening game of the season, fans of the Sulphur Springs Wildcats can be optimistic about the upcoming football season.

Losing 28-14 when you were an underdog by 14 points is about right. But I am not sure that tells the entire story.

Turnovers. Woe to the poor Wildcats for turnovers. I think if Sulphur Springs holds on to the ball and plays mistake-free football we could be talking about an upset by over Denton Ryan to start the year.
