It took the Rising Star Wildcats more than a century to land their first-ever college football signee. Wildcat fans didn’t have to wait nearly as long for their second.

Ethan Foster didn’t let playing football at a small school, on a smaller field with fewer plays stand in the way of accomplishing his dream. He just worked harder.
Gabby Herrera and Kyndall Scitern helped the Gorman Lady Panthers ring in the New Year with a bang. Both scored 14 points and helped carry the Lady Panthers to a resounding 61-6 romp over Bluff Dale in a key District 19-A showdown.
The Rising Star Wildcats find themselves in unexpected territory as they head into Week 6. The team that started the season with just six eligible players is the winningest team in the county.
