To the Editor:

I am writing the editor in response to a few things.

I was wondering why the nominees for Player of the Week include a player from Temple.

We have four local high schools in Killeen (and Harker Heights), and Temple has its own newspaper.

Not taking anything away from the kid, but can’t we find a Player of the Week in Killeen?

After all, it’s the Killeen Daily Herald, not the Temple Daily Herald.

Also, every article about Shoemaker High School football mentions former players. I get it — they’re not at Shoemaker anymore.

But can’t we give some recognition to the kids on the field now, without mentioning the players of old in every article?
