It was like being in New York City on New Year's Eve.

That's how former Allen coach Tom Westerberg described the scene in Nashville a week ago when the country music capital of the world became center stage of the 2019 NFL Draft.

"It is one I'll never forget," Westerberg, who now coaches Barbers Hill, said. "Once in a lifetime deal, great memories and just a lot of fun to be a part of it."

The entire NFL Draft experience was a first for Westerberg, who was invited to attend through the NFL's Thank You Coach program.

Westerberg, of course, was the high school head coach of eventual No. 1 overall pick Kyler Murray, who went to the Arizona Cardinals.

AUSTIN – Dalton Holland didn't know if he'd be able to get back to state in 2019.

At the beginning of the season, the Barbers Hill senior sprained his ankle badly, which forced him to be in a boot for two to three weeks and miss the first half of the track season.

"I had some doubts, I didn't think I'd be able to come back," Holland said.

Battling his way back through the therapy, Holland was able to qualify for state for a second-straight year and on Friday the senior left it all on the track.

Holland posted a time of 14.19 to claim the silver in the Class 5A 110-meter hurdles.

"Makes it a lot sweeter victory," Holland said about coming back to get the win.

In 2018, Holland came to state for the first time and ended up finishing fifth overall, fueling him to come back better this season.

"Last year I was pretty nervous coming in my first year," Holland said. "This year, I was more calm and under control. I knew what was coming."
