As Expected Several South Mountain Inductees into the Phoenix Union Spots Hall of Fame this Year

As usual, there were several South Mountain inductees into the Phoenix Union Spots Hall of Fame this year (December 19), including former Minnesota Vikings tight end Steve Jordan and 1976 Olympic medalist Dwayne Evans, who coaches at the school, but the biggest applause may have been for special inductee Rudy Sanchez, the first-ever athletic trainer to be inducted.  Sanchez, the trainer at South Mountain, is the longest tenured trainer in the District.  A West High graduate, he starred his career at North in 1984.  After a stint at Grand Canyon, he returned to South as a teacher and athletic trainer.  Currently on the State Board of Athletic Training State Licensure, he has served on numerous committees and has written curriculum and policies for athletic training.

The Single Guy Blog

My New Dream Girl

Well it has been a while since I posted. I guess after finding out my dream girl was having a baby by another guy I just wasn’t in the mood to post. But I’m back folks! So I have a new dream girl. It is a bit of a long story so sit back,pour a cup of coffee and relax. So I have been stalking the Facebook page of the bar I use to work at-ya know how a single guys does when he has no life. I saw some pictures of a beautiful girl that bartends there. Blond hair,beautiful smile…just perfect. Of course I figured I would never have a chance with her-specially since she is about 20 years younger. But a guy can dream right? So a couple days ago I was looking around seekingarrangements to see if anyone new had signed up and who do I see? Yep that girl! We will call her…Tanya…So I figured hey send her a message who knows what might happen. She sent me a message back and we sent a few more messages back and forth. I gave her my number and SURPRISE she sends me a text! So we have been talking for a couple days now. She even says she likes older guys and not the young military guys that come into the bar where she works. We are planning on meeting this week. So we will see what happens…I have my fingers crossed and won’t be surprised if she disappears before we actually meet….but I might just actually have found my future wife-or she may just “ghost” on me like so many flakey girls do. Stay tuned..maybe the Single Guy won’t be single much longer!
