No one really famous as ever come out of mine. We did have a girl win miss teen Dallas one time. And we did have a girl that made **** movies. I dated both. The one had some talents...........HSPS in Dallas AKA the health magnet. It no longer exist so any chance we had is dead. It did produce a lot of Doctors.

Carrizo Springs has a 2 time Super Bowl winner (John Ayers), Emmy winner (Lance Gordon, behind the camera guy), and a Grammy winner (Boyd Chisum). Maybe not household names, but pretty amazing for a small SoTex town.

Bishop was Willis 94 and DUNN was New Caney 98. They didnít play against each other, but those teams hated each other in all sports for many years. Bench clearing in 1993 basketball game at NC gym was epic. I have the video somewhere. Our head coach got blindsided by a Willis fan and knocked out cold. Dunn hit the first batter for Willis in just about every start during his career. Nobody was charging the mound on him. Those rivalries were great!

Yep. I was in middle school when they were there. Man to me that crew may as well have been the Yankees. Dooley, Hadley, Broussard, and they had a few pitchers back then as well. Used to go to every game!

Small world, haven't seen his name in years. Me and my dad went and watched him once when he was playing a game in Houston.

Edit: My wife doesn't know this but we named our daughter Hadley- and that's why haha. Hoping to convince her of a Dooley if another one happens.
