One Step Closer
Your Tiger Football Teams took one step closer to winning another
District Title this week with wins over the Bush Bulldogs on Tuesday
night. Your 7th Tigers won both the A and B1 games while your 8th
Grade Tigers split the contest. Your 7th and 8th grade B2 teams
defended our home field and battled the Bradley Bears on Wednesday
night. You may view the football results here.
Please come out and support your Tiger Football Teams on Wednesday,
Oct. 12, as your 8th grade Tigers host Harris MS and your 7th grade
Tigers as they travel to Harris to face the Hawks.
Parents, please be advised that there will only be an A Team and B Team
game played for the remainder of the season due to a decrease in
numbers at several schools because of injuries and other factors. ALL B2
players WILL play during the regularly scheduled B Team game.

This week I would like to introduce you to Coach
Aaron Semper. Coach Semper was born in San
Antonio and is a NEISD product graduating from
Madison High School. Coach Semper participated
in baseball, basketball and football while at
Madison. He earned All District, All City and All
State honors for baseball. Coach Semper played
baseball at UTSA on an athletic scholarship where
he also completed his bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology. Coach Semper
has been a teacher and coach for 9 years in the North East School District.
Coach Semper is married to Lindsay Semper who is a school counselor in
the Judson School District. The couple has a son named Wade. Their
hobbies include fishing, hunting, traveling and enjoying the rivers in
Gruene. Coach Semper will be teaching 8th grade Social Studies along
with coaching Basketball at Tex Hill.
I would like to take a moment and thank the 8th grade football players that
came by to see me Friday morning and who displayed an overwhelming
show of love and support during this most difficult time for me and my
family. It was much needed and appreciated. We ARE one family.

October 27th for volleyball in support of the Side-Out Foundation for
cancer research. “Pink Out” shirts will available for purchase at the next
home game or can be purchased from our female coaching staff for

We are blessed to have great student/athletes at Tex Hill MS. It’s good
practice to often review the Respect/Proper Conduct expectations on and

to carry themselves with integrity and pride as they represent the Tex Hill
MS Athletic Program.
