TJC reveals Friday Night Scoreboard scholarship winners

During this past football season, Harlen the Sports Guy and Pigskin Bob from the Friday Night Scoreboard radio show (KYKX 105.7 & 104.1 The Ranch) crashed high school pep rallies across East Texas.

They announced winners of “Future Apache of the Week,” sponsored by Tyler Junior College; “Cheerleader of the Week,” sponsored by Baylor Scott & White Texas Spine & Joint Hospital; and “Drill Teamer of the Week,” sponsored by Doug’s Paint & Body in White Oak.
