    Certainly something for you guys to be proud of!

    Congrats, Matt and son!!!! I thought about you when I opened the paper this morning. Hope all is well down your way and that the fire didn't affect you---sounded like it was pretty nasty.

    Congrats, Matt. High fives to your son, too.

    To those unfamiliar with Hobbs NM, high school sports (especially basketball and football) are played and supported with the fervor generally associated with West Texas. (That's because it pretty much is in West Texas.) Hobbs always tends to have very good teams, or at least they did when I lived in the state.

    Hey Matt, a BIG Congratulations to You AND your SON. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to win on that level in these days and times, and that experience can really jump start those team members towards Many other Successes throughout life. I wish him many more successful endeavors.

    Personal accomplishments of our own are always nice, but to see our Children Succeed, is a hundred times more satisfying.

    It is nice to see kids play sports, it is the foundation for adult hood.
