    Spartans Begin New Year 2-0

    The Boyd County Spartans basketball squad started the new year out with a win against the Santee Warriors on January 7th. The Spartans faced the quick, shooting team and happened to trail the Warriors at halftime by 4. The Spartans gave up 8 three-pointers in the first half, causing them to fall behind. After the break, the Spartans came out with a lot of energy and were able to force a high number of turnovers and capitalize on unforced errors by Santee. The primary source of the scorning efforts came from Colby Hansen who contributed a career-high 40 points. Jory Zeisler also added 12 and Joseph Hiatt 10. Hansen was also strong in the rebounding category, recording 10 while Hiatt had 8 while also pitching out 6 assists. The aggressive Spartan defense that forced Warrior turnovers was led by Hiatt, Kannin Ellwanger, and Cory Koenig as they earned 4 steals apiece.

    DeMoine Adams Visits Boyd County Students

    DeMoine Adams is a motivational speaker and artist who inspires others to be greater, to be leaders, and to be winners in the game of life. The staff and students at Boyd County were able to meet DeMoine and listen to his message.

    DeMoine is originally from Pine Bluff, Arkansas, and has accelerated much of his life as an athlete, both collegiately and professionally, so much that his experience became an example for others to develop a Game Plan for their success!  DeMoine was a three-year starting Blackshirt Defensive End for the Nebraska Cornhuskers who led the team in quarterback sacks during his time on the team.  DeMoine played an instrumental role in helping the Huskers win a Big 12 conference championship in 1999 and helped lead the Huskers to the National Championship Rose Bowl in 2002. 

    Off the field, DeMoine received Academic All-American honors, First-Team Academic All-Big 12 honors over the course of three years, Arthur Ashe recipient, the Brook Berringer Citizenship team award recipient over the course of three years, the 2002 Lifter of the Year, and was named the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) Nebraska Athlete of the Year. As a first-generation student, DeMoine received his Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science in three years with minors in English, History, Communications, Ethnic Studies and African Studies and went on to receive his Master’s degree in Educational Psychology.  DeMoine is currently pursuing his Doctorate degree at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and his research includes Leadership, Motivation, and Sociology. 

    From being a Professional football athlete with five years of Pro football experience in the CFL, NFL, and AFL to becoming a Professional Motivational Speaker, DeMoine emphasizes in his talks the importance of having a Game Plan to be winners and pros in life.  DeMoine motivates and challenges others to:

    • Maximize performance

    • Build positive relationships

    • Develop a strong focus

    • Create an environment of principles

    • Embrace the unique role of a leader

    DeMoine is always the one who has pushed himself despite the obstacles in front of him, the setbacks that pushed him back, and the odds that stacked up against him, DeMoine’s personal attributes and resilience influence others to form a relentless commitment in order to win in the game of life.  DeMoine speaks numerous times each year throughout the Midwest and has a true passion for people reaching their full human potential as leaders and winners in life.  DeMoine’s motto in life is: “Once you see where you’re going, everything you do must correspond with where you’re going.”
