Brent Wicker is a competitor.

The soft-spoken ag teacher, in his 12th year at Peaster High School, says one his favorite things is watching his students compete and win.

“We have some pretty amazing kids,” Wicker said. “That’s why we do what we do, it’s because of [them] that makes it so enjoyable. Getting to watch them grow and succeed is a bonus.”

And succeed they have. In the last year his Ag Mechanics group has walked away with some pretty lofty prizes while educating some of the larger schools on how it’s done.

“I had a really talented bunch in Ag Mechanics this year,” Wicker said. “Some of the kids partnered together to build a 32-foot Goose Neck Lowboy trailer.”

The trailer materials, funded by the parents of one of the young men working on the project, was designed to haul a pair of vintage cars. The trailer had all of the “bells and whistles,” including a hydraulic lift located in the last 8 feet of the trailer that would lower for easy loading of the cars.

As a result, their creation won first place at the Houston Livestock Show, in the Lowboy trailer division.

“That was competing against more than 400 other projects,” Wicker said.

He said another one of his teams built a traditional 20-foot Goose Neck stock trailer and took home the Reserve Champion Gooseneck Trailer award at the San Antonio Livestock show.

“These were some of the nicest projects we’ve every built,” Wicker added.

Both trailers went on to win at the Parker County show, the 32-foot' Lowboy was the Grand Champion, and the Gooseneck Stock trailer was Reserve Champion.

Peaster FFA has approximately 154 members with more than 50 competing at the show. See below for results of this year’s show.
