The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers closed the Pier 36/Lake Belton Marina on Friday because of health and safety issues caused by weather damage, Fort Worth District spokesman Clay Church said in a news release.Jeff Lagow, marina owner, was responsible for notifying tenants about the closure, but Church said the Corps had no confirmation Friday as to whether or not he received the served documents. Regardless of whether Lagow notified them, barricades and signs were scheduled to be placed at the marina beginning Friday afternoon, Church said.
There are two things that Temple coach Mike Spradlin and defensive coordinator Scott Stewart never have to worry about with senior cornerback Vaderik Grayer.One of them is knowing whether the Wildcats’ jovial, talkative two-year team captain is in the room.“We know when Vaderik walks in and when (senior wide receiver Davion) ‘Que’ Curtis walks in,” said Stewart, who performed his impression of Grayer’s high-pitched laugh. “We have a little running joke that when Vaderik goes off and does his laugh, I’ll say, ‘Hey, is Vaderik here?’”Said Spradlin: “It’s a good energy. We don’t try to squelch him.”The other thing is the consistency of Grayer’s work ethic and positive, team-centered attitude.“He’s learned that intensity, and he’s chosen to be that intense,” Spradlin said of Grayer, who begins his third varsity season when third-ranked Temple plays at Round Rock at 7:30 tonight at Dragon Stadium. “We’ve got a team full of them, and it’s hard to say he outworks everybody, but he ain’t getting outworked. Nobody’s going to outwork him.”Stewart, in his second season at Temple, agreed that Grayer’s work habits are unsurpassed.
