Dave Campbell TMs Texas Football is proud to announce that the La Feria High School Lions football team has been named the Army Strong Team of the Week for Division 3A.
The La Feria Lions were chosen for this honor because of their teamwork, dedication, discipline, personal courage and integrity, values shared by U.S. Army Soldiers.
La Feria earned a narrow 33-32 victory this weekend, knocking off one of the top teams in Division 3A by scoring 10 points in the final 43 seconds, said Adam Hochfelder, general manager of Dave Campbell's Texas Football. The win puts the Lions at 1-1 in district play and right back in the division race.
The award will be presented to the team at a time to be determined later this week by a representative of the U.S. Army.
"The U.S. Army is recognizing the student-athletes at La Feria High School for demonstrating qualities similar to those exhibited by its Soldiers. Student-athletes and Soldiers share similar values, but more importantly they must be mentally, emotionally and physically strong," said Captain Diana Garcia. "We expect to see some of these young men competing at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, the college level, or maybe even professionally in the future."
