Lions take third in state pool

Dublin took third in pool play June 29 in the seven-on-seven state football tournament but was eliminated by Lorena, 33-14, in the consolation bracket. 

“[The] kids learned we can compete well with larger schools,” coach Greg Hardcastle said. “I could really see a difference in our defense understanding the coverages Coach Kent has introduced from the first tournament in May until now. 

“Offensively we had some boys that really stepped up and showed that they are ready to step up and contribute in the fall.”
Dublin beat Liberty, 20-19, fell to Rockdale, 27-20, and lost to San Augustine, 27-21. 

“All three pool games were very close and we had a chance to win the two games we lost,” Hardcastle said. “[We] had a chance to win both at the end of each.”
Summer conditioning will resume next week as the Lions prepare for another difficult football season this fall.

Linemen line up at state

Ethan Price earned his third consecutive top bench presser award at the Texas Lineman Challenge on Saturday at Hardin Simmons in Abilene. 

Joined by seven other offensive and defensive linemen from Dublin, Price competed against 3A and smaller schools from around the state in the strong-man competition, taking ninth as a team. 

“I was proud of our guys, who may have been undersized compared to some teams there, but you would have never known it by the way they got out and competed,” coach Jason Clark said. 

“This is our third year of doing these events, and you can see a major difference from where we started.”

The team took second in the farmer’s walk contest and fifth in both the tire throw and power drive push. 

Clark said many schools were from the Big Country, including Clyde, Merkel, Hawley and the winner of division 3.

Lions in state lineman challenge

The Dublin Lions will be competing in the State Lineman Challenge, hosted by Hardin-Simmons University, on Saturday at 9 a.m. The offensive- and defensive lineman-type athletes will be competing in a strong man-style competition with eight events, such as tire flip, sled push and obstacle course.

Teams will earn points to take the team championship. There will also be a tug-of-war that teams compete in for points. 

At the qualifying event, also hosted at Hardin-Simmons, the Lions placed fifth overall, had the fastest time in the sled push and the second fastest time in the tire flip and power drive. Ethan Price has the most bench press reps for an individual in the whole qualifying event, benching 185 pounds 31 times.

Teten named All-State shortstop

Dublin Lion Tim Teten was named a shortstop for the All-State third team. 

“He is more than deserving of this award,” baseball coach Kellen Cervetto said. “We are blessed that he wears Dublin across his chest because there are only a few players that get all-state.”

The junior was honored at the all-district level as well for his contributions to Dublin’s defense. 

“Tim is one of those players that makes coaching simple,” Cervetto said. “He comes to practice with a work ethic that is contagious to the other players. Tim is a very humble individual, though. He will gladly take a team award rather than an individual award just because of who he is.”

Cervetto said Teten is only the second player in Dublin history to earn a place on the All-State team. 

“We are very proud of Tim,” he said. “He is a true talent and  very gifted individual.”
