Four Rangers Football Players Dismissed From The Team

Four members of the Kilgore College football team have been dismissed by head coach Jimmy Rieves for an undisclosed violation of team rules.

Sophomore Erick Hatchett, mid-term signees Tyson Kirksey and Greg Payne, and redshirt-freshman Anthony Spoon were all projected starters for the 2005 Ranger squad.

Hatchett was not only KC’s leading rusher a season ago, but also ranked fourth among running backs in the Southwest Junior College Football Conference.

Kirksey has seen extensive playing time with the first team at linebacker during fall workouts, as has Payne at defensive back. Spoon, a tight end, has also been working out with the first squad and was projected as an impact player for the defending SWJCFC champions.

“Winning is important but winning with character is more important,” Rieves said. “The Kilgore College football program has rules and violating them has consequences. We don’t waiver on our stance of upholding discipline.”
