Keystone combination of Kolinek, Ellinger was unstoppable

by CHARLEY ROBINSON

CONTRIBUTING WRITER
Good baseball teams are usually strong up the middle, meaning great defense from your catcher, center-fielder and – most importantly – the shortstop and second baseman. Add a strong-arm pitching staff and you should have a contender. The 1977 Uvalde Coyotes, who captured the Class 3-A state baseball championship, had such a nucleus. Since the majority of batted baseballs travel through the centerof the diamond and are grounders, good defense in the center of the infield is imperative.

He earned All-District honors at Uvalde High School in both sports, lettering all four years in baseball. Baseball scouts folowed him because of his powerful bat and speed. During his senior year, Inman batted .343, had 18 extra base hits, and was 35/35 in stolen bases.

Former Coyote is now Sunday school teacher

by CHARLEY ROBINSON

CONTRIBUTING WRITER
Don Laffere’s former coaches, teachers and even teammates might never have envisioned him as a Sunday school teacher, but the lay leader is spreading the good news in more ways than one. When one of his former coaches heard Laffere was teaching Sunday school, he was shocked. It just goes to prove what God can do. Laffere is a bona-fide Uvalde native, born and raised in Uvalde, graduated from Uvalde High, and except for a four-year hiatus in San Marcos to obtain a college degree, has lived in the area all his life.
