The Clark Cougar annual All Sports Banquet, hosted each year by the Clark Athletic Booster Club, was the scene for a good time and a “hot” evening (see: A/C). Athletes and their coaches had a chance to review their seasons with parents and other athletes.
The highlight of the evening was the scholarships awarded. This year, thanks to Booster Club members and sales of sports program ads, t-shirts and other spirit items, $16,000 was awarded to student athletes going to college. The money awarded set a new record for number of students and amount of money given back by the Booster Club (see: IMPORTANT TO SUPPORT AND JOIN!).
Congratulations to all the athletes and coaches for their efforts this year and special good luck to the Seniors who have contributed to the Pride of the Northside. It’s a Good Day to be a Clark Cougar!
2011 Clark Booster Club Scholarship winners:
Senior Joe Vasquez was this year’s winner of the annual Clark Texas Football Club scholarship. President Jeff Schorr announced the award at a team meeting. The scholarship is given out every year to a senior headed for college by the club, which is made up of former Clark Cougar football players.
The scholarship is now named in honor of retiring head coach Lloyd Alexander. This year’s award was for $3000 and the funds are raised by the Clark Texas Football Club through their annual golf tournament and other activities.
Former students, players, parents, coaches and friends gathered together for a night of memories and thanks to honor Athletic Coordinator and Head Coach Lloyd Alexander at a casual retirement party organized by the Clark Athletic Booster Club.
Several former players, including the Clark Texas Football Club, were able to give thanks and share memories of the coach who began his career at Clark the first day the doors opened.
Dressed in a Hawaiian shirt, Coach A thanked those in attendance and spoke briefly to the crowd about his appreciation for the Clark community and especially the expectation by Clark athletes and fans to win, which, he said, made his job easier.
The highlight of the evening was an announcement by Jeff Schorr, the Clark Texas Football Club founder, that their annual scholarship (this year – $3000) would from here on out be named the Lloyd Alexander scholarship. This year’s recepient will be named in a few days.
The Clark Texas Football Club is an organization of former Clark coaches and players.

A great article from David Flores of KENS5 on Coach Lloyd Alexander and his coaching career and early years.
Athletic Director and Head Coach Lloyd Alexander announced to his team today that he would be retiring at the end of the school year. The following is a brief bio of the man known as “Coach A.”
He says his favorite moment at Clark is not a single game or event, but a patchwork of many small moments when former players come back to visit and tell him how much the lessons learned in the Clark athletic program have meant to them in their work and family lives.
For Coach Lloyd Alexander that’s real success in Clark, Texas.
When Clark High School opened its doors to students 31 years ago, it also welcomed young Lloyd Alexander to the athletic staff.
