To the Editor:
Hello, my name is Emilio Juarez and I’d like to make a plea to the community about getting sponsors for KMac Sports to come back next year for Friday Night Football for the Lockhart Lions.
Last year, I was deployed to Kuwait with the Texas Army National Guard and thanks to those who sponsored each game I was able to listen to every game through KMac Sports.
With many former Lions and residents of Lockhart either deployed overseas and those who no longer live in Lockhart, it was a way to come home for a few hours every Friday for Lockhart Lion Football.
That’s what KMac Sports, Chuck Licata and Randy Frye did for me every Friday.
I was honored to have been interviewed by Mr. Licata for the Lockhart Lion Homecoming Game versus Seguin and to hear the exciting ending to this game that ended in a Lion Victory was the highlight of my deployment.
So as a community let’s get together and start working on sponsors for next year’s games so that former Lockhart residents and service members from all over the world can tune in to hear their hometown team play next season on Friday Nights.
You can take the Lion out of Lockhart, but you can never take the HEART out of Lockhart.
Sgt. Emilio Juarez
