The Frank Phillips College softball team recently braved the cold weather to help a great cause. Earlier this month, the team spent the afternoon in front of the United Supermarket in Borger ringing bells for the Salvation Armyâ€™s Christmas Charity.
â€śThe â€śmiracleâ€ť of Christmas is repeated over and over again through the joy of caring and sharing. The traditional red kettle is an integral part of the Christmas scene, with millions of dollars donated each year to aid needy families, seniors, and the homeless, in keeping with the spirit of the season.
On Thursday evening, Borger senior Dustin Clark verbally committed to play football for the University of North Texas.
Clark had an impressive football career for the Borger Bulldogs as a defensive end where he was selected as the District 1-3A Defensive MVP and earned Second Team All-State honors by the Associated Press earlier this week.
Due to his impressive play, Clark had drawn interest from several division one programs, including Wyoming, Kansas, and Vanderbilt.
Clark will join a Mean Green program that went 5-7 in 2011 in Dan McCarneyâ€™s first season as head coach of the program.
