Rosters announced for Chicken E All-Star Classic

Local stars highlight All-Star teams for both girls and boys



Wimberly was a force for the Lady Rabbits in their district runner-up season, averaging 14.1 points, 6.1 steals, 0.8 blocks, 4.2 assists and 7.6 rebounds.


Johnson average 12.3 points, 4.8 steals, 2.2 assists and 7.7 rebounds in the 2013-14 season.


On the boys side, Santo is also well-represented with point guard Cooper Barling playing for the East and 6-foot-4 post Zarmorris Cannon suiting up for the West. 


Barling posted an average of 11 points, three steals, 6.1 assists and 2.4 rebounds last season, while his teammate Cannon was dominant in the paint, averaging a whopping 21 points, 1.3 steals, two blocks, 2.2 assists and 12.05 rebounds per game.


Representing the regional finalist Graford Jackrabbits is forward Dylan Hart. Hart averaged 11 points, 1.5 steals, 0.2 blocks, 1.2 assists and 6.7 rebounds per game en route to a memorable 27-4 district championship season. 


Hart and the Jackrabbits fell just short of a trip to state, losing to Water Valley in the Class 1A-Division II Regional Finals after a thrilling, double-overtime victory over Ira in the regional semis. 


The girls' all-star game is set to begin at 2 p.m. with the boys' game to immediately follow. According to a press release, each player is guaranteed four minutes of playing time per half. Tickets will be $5 for adults and $3 for students with children under school age receiving free admission. 


As an added attraction, the Mineral Wells Area Chamber of Commerce and Chicken Express will have a three-point shooting contest during halftime of each game after which Chicken Express will award the winner of each a $1,000 scholarship. 


In order to comply with the NCAA rules, the finances will be sent directly to the school of the winners’ choice to be used for their education only.  Only those players who intend to go to college are eligible to participate.

  • FB Gordon at Strawn b8.jpg FWIW: Good, clean hate – Ranking the area's best rivalry games of the 2014 football season


    Football season is fast approaching and with it those glorious games between teams that love to hate each other, which we call rivalries.

    I'm speaking, of course, about sports hate – the only beautiful kind. It's the stuff built on history and tradition that inspires simply the fiercest and most entertaining games of every season.

    Palo Pinto County and the surrounding area have no shortage of fierce football rivalries.

    The University Interscholastic League's realignment often causes new rivalries to be born and old ones to be rekindled. But which rivalries are the area's very best for 2014? The one's you circle your calendar for and make sure you don't miss.

    I can think of at least 10.

    So, for what it's worth, here's my list of the area's best, can't-miss football rivalries of the upcoming 2014 season.
