Rockwall Jacket Backers select Athletes of the Month

(ROCKWALL ISD – October 19, 2013) The Rockwall High School Jacket Backers have selected Emily Drewery as the Lady Jacket Athlete of the Month and  Xavier Castille as the Yellowjacket Athlete of the Month.

Emily, a1 11th grade member of the Varsity Cross Country Team, was nominated by Toby Howell and chosen by the Jacket Backers board.

During the month of September, Emily twice finished in the top 10 in competitions. Emily is a 3 year letterman and is the team captain.  Her hard work and dedication show especially with her being one of the top runners on the team.  She has done a great job showing the freshmen the ropes.

“Emily’s leadership has been a great asset on the team this year.  This speaks well of this year and the future of Rockwall cross-country with her on board,“ said Coach Howell.

Also nominated for this month’s Lady Jacket Athlete of the Month award was Jacqueline Ullmann.

Xavier, an 11th grade member of the Varsity Football Team was nominated by Rodney Webb and chosen by the Jacket Backers board.

During the month of September, Xavier was the 3rd leading receiver in DFW, tied for 9th in scoring, and since mid-September, his additional role as our free safety has led to a resurgence in the Jacket defense.

“During a season filled with injuries, Xavier has been a rock for our team, and has led us on both sides of the ball each and every week of the season,” said Coach Webb.

Also nominated for this month’s Yellowjacket Athlete of the Month Award was Spencer McKee.
