Terrazas ran for over 1,100 yards during the Eagles' 2000 football season

year in row to win the Craig Woods Award, which goes to the outstanding football

a linebacker during the past season, and for academic achievement; while
Marquez' was honored for her participation in he most sports during her four
years at Pecos High School. Dominguez received her award for her efforts
during the Eagles' 2000 volleyball season.
Also receiving separate awards on Thursday were three Pecos Eagle senior
swimmers, Randall Reynolds, Jo Ann Wein and Grant Holland, who earned Academic
All-America honors for the 2000-2001 season. Other all-district certificates
and other team honors were handed out by Pecos coaches during the three-hour
Before the awards were given out, guest speaker Dr. Mary Ann Weinacht,
Chairman of the Education Department at Sul Ross State University, talked
about the support Pecos teams received this year and the results during the
2000-2001 school year.
"This has been a great year for the Eagles and their followers," said
Weinacht, who added she has followed Pecos teams for the past 34 years and
whose son, Bill, was the Eagles' quarterback as well as a regional qualifier
in the pole vault 20 years ago.
"I told coach (Gary) Grubbs I always see something new at a football game,
and that night (in Fort Stockton) I saw my first overtime game," she said,
while talking about how Pecos overcame three overtime losses this season
to reach the playoffs.
Pecos-Barstow-Toyah ISD Athletic Director Bubba Williams told the non-senior
athletes in the crowd they should strive to improve on this season's efforts.
"This is an opportunity for all of you to go a step farther next year,
but you've got to want to do it," said Williams.
Along with swimming, volleyball, track and football, other teams honored
during the banquet were basketball, tennis, golf, power lifting, cross country,
rodeo, softball and baseball.
