EUSTACE–Eustace Bulldog football standout Blake Ward has been selected to play in the annual Texas High School Coaches Association (THSCA) All-Star football game July 31 at the Alamo Dome in San Antonio. The game will be played at 7:30 p.m.
Ward is the first Eustace football player ever selected to play in the game.

Over the course of this season, Ward scored 12 touchdowns as a running back on offense, after gaining 1,211 yards.
On defense, he played middle linebacker and racked up 105 tackles, 16 tackles for a loss and seven quarterback pressures.
Over the course of the senior’s high school football career, Ward recorded more than 300 tackles, while helping the Bulldogs make the playoffs three straight years.
He was also named the 2011-12 District 6-2A Defensive Player of the Year. He was also named the 2011 All-Henderson County Defensive Player of the Year.
At the THSCA All-Star game, Ward will play outside linebacker for the North Team, coached by Abilene Wylie High School football coach Hugh Sandifer.
As for Ward’s future plans, he will report with the Air Force for basic training just less than a month after the All-Star game.
