Varsity Football · Personable Wagaman solid, steady sophomore for Wildcats


When people talk about the 2018 Temple-Belton football game months and years and even decades from now, if there’s one kick that gets brought up most prominently it probably will be the 51-yard field goal by Tigers junior Logan Smith that sent the back-and-forth rivalry showdown into a third overtime period.
