McALLEN – Mcallen Rowe’s Patrick Tarbutton came alive when his team needed him most.
The Warriors faced a tough McAllen Bulldogs team in a district battle without Senior Leader Louie Yebra out for discipline reasons.
A win would allow the warriors to keep pace with District Leaders PSJA North. A loss would make a district-title run very difficult.
Down one point in the closing seconds of the ball game, Tarbutton hit a three-pointer to put the Warriors over the top, keeping them alive-and-well in the district title race.
His heroics have earned him the right as this week’s DHR Health Athlete of the Week.
