Back Page Friday, July 31,2015 By Benny Rogers TVCC Sports lntbrmation The hall of fame's eighth class is scheduled to be in- ducted on Saturday, Oct. 24, at 11 a.m. "First and foremost, l think it is extremely special that a small East Texas community college such as our can have such a rich tradition of successful ath- letic programs and ath- letes," said TVCC athletic director Brad Smiley, who also serves on the selection committee. "Trinity Valley is the premier j unior college athletics program in the nation today, and this year's hall of fame inductees, as well as their predecessors who have already been in- ducted, are some of the greatest in their respective sports that have ever par- ticipated at this level. Inductees this year are: Ron Baugh, Special Contributor (1983-2008). When Bangh began his 25-year tenure at the col- lege (the last 21 as presi- dent), the athletic program was without a national championship. Upon his retirement in 2008, the to- tal was 13. He oversaw the most successful era of the college's athletic program, which produced eight na- tional championships in cheerleading, five in women's basketball and two in tbotball. Baugh approved the hir- ing of six national champi- onship coaches -Kurt Budke, Michael Landers, Randy Pippin, Scotty Conley, Shannon Davidson and Lucy Strom. He joins Budke, Pippin and Conley in the Cardinal Hall of Fame. Shannon Bobbitt, Women's Basketball (2004-06). Though she stood just 5- 2, Bobbitt authored a sto- ried career that included big numbers and accomplish- ments. In her two years as the floor leader for the Lady Cardinal basketball teanv, she put together an impres- sive resume, at the top of which is having been se- lected the WBCA Junior/ Community College Player of the year as a sophomore in 2006. When she left the col- lege, she had established a school record for career assists with 372. Winning didn't stop for Bobbitt after her TVCC career. She went on to star at the University of Ten- nessee, where she was the shortest player ever signed by the Lady Vols and helped hall of fame and leg- endary coach Pat Summitt to a 70-5 record and back- to-back national champion- ships. She was the 15th overall pick in the 2008 WNBA draft by the Los Angeles Sparks. She also played for the Indiana Fever and Washington Mystics and has played in professional leagues the past several years. Nell Derrick, Men's Basketball (1988-90). After a freshman year in which he averaged 15.0 points per game for the Cardinals, Derrick burst onto the scene in a big-time way the following year. As a sophomore, he average 27.0 points per game and was an All-American. He was also an all-re- gion and all-conference performer for NJCAA Hall of Fame and Cardinal Hall of Fame coach Leon Spen- cer. Derrick continued his playing career at Washing- ton State University, where he continued to score in bunches. As a junior he was the team's second-leading scorer, having been the top scorer in 14 games with 20 points or more. He also had the second-most steals on the team that season. Erik Flowers, Football 0996-97). As the anchor of the Cardinals' defensive line at end as a sophomore in 1997, Flowers helped produce the college's second na- tional championship. Winning and lofty na- tional rankings were the name of the game when he played for the Cardinals, coached by Cardinal Hall of Famer Scotty Conley. During his two years, the Cardinals posted an 18-4 mark. In the Cardinals' national title run, Flowers and the defensive unit allowed just 163 points in 12 games (13.6 average). He was named first-team NJCAA All-American that season. Flowers was the 26th pick in the first round of the 2000 NFL draft by the Buf- falo Bills. In his six-year NFL career, he also played with the Houston Texans and St. Louis Rams. Yolanda Jones, Women's Basketball (2002-04). It was all about winning in Jones' two years as a Lady Cardinal. During that time, she helped the Lady Cardinals to a 66-1 record, including the second 36-0 season in school history in 2004, which culminated with a national champion- ship in Salina, KS. As a non-starter as a sophomore in the national championship season, she averaged 17.4 points and 6.8 rebounds. She was named first-team Kodak All-American as a sopho- more and also named MVP of the 2004 NJCAA Tour- Notice of Draft Federal Operating Permit and Acid Rain Permit Draft Permit No.: 057 Application and Draft Permit.

Jones continued her play- ing career at the University of Loui siana-Lafayette, where she averaged 17.9 points and 10.5 rebounds in two seasons She signed as a free agent with the Phoenix Mercury in the WNBA. Chavis McCollister, Football (1999-2000) McCollister was the ulti- mate playmaker. When he .touched the ball, chances were very good it was go- ing to result in a touchdown, if not then, at some point. He was named first- team NJCAA All-Ameri- can and the Southwest Jun- ior College Football Confer- ence Offensive MVP as a sophomore. That followed a freshman season in which he helped the Cardinals to a conference title and win in the Red River Bowl. McCollister rushed for 2,71'2 career yards, which was third all-time in the SWJCFC. He also scored 24 rushing touchdowns, in- eluding 17 as a sophomore. He ranks sixth all-time in the SWJCFC rushing touch- downs and established the conference's record for longest rushing touchdown with an 85-yarder against Cisco as a sophomore. Shauna Tubbs, Women's Basketball (1991 - 93) In the history of women's basketball play- ers at the college, Tubbs stands among the greats and becomes the first from the Joe Curl coachin era to be inducted into the Car- dinal Hall of Fame. Tubbs was twice named All-American and MVP of the Texas Eastern Confer- ence, having helped lead the Lady Cardinals to back- to-back conference cham- pionships. She averaged 26.0 points, 16.5 rebounds and 3.2 steals per game as a freshman and 22.9 points. 14.5 rebounds and 3.2 steals as a sophomore.

She also played several seasons for the club teams Houston Flight and Houston Jaguars. Continued from Page 1 the City of Malakoft, along with Chief Mitchell, were li- able for failure to properly screen, train and supervise Fierro. Dismissing that claim, Judge Payne wrote that "the training and supervision claims also require deliber- ate indifference to the known or obvious conse- quences of the failure. Fur- thermore, the plaintiff must show a pattern of inad- equate training over time to multiple employees, rather than a one-time negligent administration of the pro- gram or factors peculiar to the officer involved in a par- ticular incident." The federal judge's order to dismiss continued: "Plain- tiffs' best claim here is on the hiring claim. It is nndis- puted that Fierro had been disciplined in the past while employed with the police departments in Dallas and Ferris. However, Plaintiffs have no evidence to show that Chief Mitchell was aware of all of the details that Plaintiffs offer in their brief, based on their lengthy investigation. The summary judgment evidence shows that Chief Mitchell did con- tact both previous employ- ers and received only a mo- dicum of information. The fact that he could have ob- tained more information by digging deeper is simply ir- relevant under the case law set out above. While there was much evidence to cast doubt on Fierro's likely suc- cess as an officer for Malakoff, the evidence does not come close to meeting (the U.S. Supreme Court's) requirement that "the plainly obwous conse- quence of the decision to hire the applicant would be the deprivation of a third party's federally protected right.'"' The order also stated: "The training and supervi- sion claims are even weaker. The summary judgment evidence shows that the City of Malakoff required its officers to meet the continuing training re- quirements of the State of Texas to maintain a peace officer's license. There is no showing that the City or the Chief engaged in a pat- tern of deliberate indiffer- ence to the training needs of the officers. The cases make clear that it is not suf- ficient to merely allege that they should have required more training or closer su- pervision on the particular subject at issue in the case." :ion Continued from Page 1 Q that money belongs in the community, not spent by bu- reaucrats on big-government programs in Austin." Spitzer also said he will reintroduce legislation to pro- tect children in small towns from sexual predators. A loop- hole in the law does not allow small communities to regu- late where these predators live after they are convicted of heinous crimes. "We moved that measure along last year, but it died in the waning days of the session." he said. "1 will return with even more dedication to make this protection a law for the sake of our children." "There is much more to be done and I am looking for- ward to getting it done. I am asking for the voters to continue to support me during this campaign and on elec- tion day."
