Per Lionathletics.com, Softball Coach Richie Bruiser had his contact extended through the 2021 seasons. For sure, a deserved extension. Again, you have to give kudos to Tim McMurray and the athletic administration for how they are not only hiring quality coaches but retaining them and keeping them winning. In 4 seasons, the Lions under Bruister have compiled a 142-75 record with 2 NCAA National Tournament Appearances and a South Central Region 1 Title to go along with a 42-12 record. He also coached the great Mariah Jameyson was named national play of the year in addition to various All-Americans that the Lions placed on the All-American team. This program made a strong run for a national title in only their 4th season, so the future looks brights. The Lions also notched a final ranking of # 9 for the year.
I wanted to apologize for not covering the softball squad as much as I would have liked, especially during the home stretch of the season. Next year will be different and nothing will undercut the great season you all had this year and the coverage will be better next year.
Perez LSC Male Athlete of The Year.
I really do not know what to say about Luis except this guy just won’t stop winning. In all seriousness, I believe this shows what the LSC wants in an exceptional athlete. A great player, a great student, a devoted husband and good citizen. Luis will no doubt continue to make us proud.
The Wire staff would like to wish a very happy birthday to Bobby Wolfe, a Lion of the early 1980’s. A native of Mesquite, Texas, Wolfe was a member and a key player on the 1980 National Semifinalist team on the offensive line and was All LSC in 1982 and is currently working on his Ph.D, which he (should) be awarded this December. He has been a great friend to the site and to me personally so I wanted to give “The Wolfe” a shout on his birthday. Happy Birthday my friend!
