Here's an Associated Press photo of this past Saturday's scrimmage.

I haven't been able to get in touch with Brad McCoy today to get his thoughts, but CLICK HERE to read the AP account of the scrimmage, complete with comments from Colt.

HERE AND THERE

Colt McCoy, shown here signing autographs at halftime at the recent Jim Ned boys' state semi-final basketball game in Austin, will be the keynote speaker for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Victory Banquet on April 6 at the Abilene Civic Center.

Colt will also help introduce the all-stars, coaches and cheerleaders that have been selected to play in the 9th Annual Fellowship of Christian Athletes Myrle Greathouse All-Star Classic football game which will be held June 7 at Abilene's P.E. Shotwell Stadium.

There are only a few tickets left for the Victory Banquet (set for 4 p.m.), and they have to be purchased by Monday, March 17. You can contact the Big Country FCA office at (325) 795-0020. Individual tickets are $75.

P.S. Jim Ned lost in the finals the very next day. Back in 2005, Colt was a heckuva basketball player as well. His team of Indians made it to the state finals, too, but also lost.
