Congrats

I'll be back in a few hours with a My Town Monday post but in the meantime, I wanted to congratulate Amarillo's own Evander "Ziggy" Hood. Yesterday, Ziggy became the first ever graduate of an Amarillo High School (The Palo Duro Dons) to be drafted in the first round of the NFL draft. As a follow up to his gridiron days as a Missouri Tiger the 6'3" 300 pound defensive tackle is now headed to Pittsburgh to play on the defensive line for the defending super bowl champion Steelers.

It's always good to see a fellow Amarilloan find success.
