Justin athlete Micah Sherman recently committed to play college football for McMurry University next school year in Abilene.The three year varsity starter competed for HSSA and maintained a 3.6 grade point average throughout his high school career.According to a news release, “Micah’s self-motivation and trust in the recruiting process has rewarded him with the opportunity to play football as a McMurry War Hawk and earn a meaningful degree that will help him succeed in the future.”Sherman said in a news release that the road to playing football at the college level did not come easily.“I have only played football since my sophomore year in high school,” Sherman said. “I came to the U.S. from Russia very underweight. I needed to catch up to my peers before my parents would let me participate in sports. I am also a home-schooled athlete, and I played for a private team in out of Dallas, consisting of all home school athletes.“Teams have learned to take us seriously over the last couple of years, but we rarely get the credit or attention of mainstream athletics. Getting looked at or taken seriously by recruiters has been said to be difficult.”Keller Central and Fossil Ridge battle it outKeller Central and Fossil Ridge High school battled it out on Friday night in high school soccer action.The Central boys defeated Fossil Ridge 3-1 to improve to 6-1-2 on the season.On the girls side, Central defeated Ridge 2-0 to improve to 7-5-1 on the season.GNWSA to host monthly board meetingThe Greater Northwest Soccer Association will host its monthly board meeting at 5:30 p.m. on March 24 at the Roanoke Fire Department at 201 Fairway Drive in RoanokeAll association members are welcome to attend.Those wishing to attend are encouraged to RSVP.
