‘Be Heard’

‘Be Heard’

After victorious outings against Northwest Eaton and Fort Worth O.D. Wyatt Nov. 24, Azle wrestlers – wearing “Be Heard” t-shirts  –assembled outside the gym to release balloons in remembrance of former Hornet Dammion Heard. After a prayer, Azle Coach Chris Allen spoke, mentioning the importance of not taking anyone for granted. Heard died under mysterious circumstances last April in Colorado where he wrestled for Western Colorado and was a rising star. After the brief ceremony at the high school, green balloons were released and floated away on the stout south breeze.                     Photos by Mark K.Read the rest

Upon arrival, firefighters discovered it wasn’t the dumpster at all, but recyclable material inside a Moore Recycling truck that was burning. The truck had to dump most of its load onto the parking lot of the school so the fire could be extinguished.                                            Photo by Carla Noah Stutsman… Read the rest
