DE-FENSE! This famous chant was shouted many times during the 6th Annual Texas FFA Spurs Night on December 10th. More than 600 students, advisors and parents were present for the home game against the Atlanta Hawks. Among those present were many FFA chapter officer teams, the state FFA officers, national FFA champions from Texas and the Texas FFA Ford Leadership Scholars. The Ford Leadership Scholars and the Texas FFA State Officers enjoyed the game in luxury from box seats provided by Ainsworth Trucking, Ford Motor Company and the San Antonio Spurs! Needless to say, it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for both the officers and the scholars.
During the game, students had a great time cheering for the Spurs and dancing to music during time-outs. The state officer team was even shown on the jumbo screen showing off their crazy dance moves! The announcer commented, “And these are the students who will control our food supply…”

The national FFA champions from Texas were taken onto the court during half-time where they were honored for their prestigious achievement. In the end, the Spurs, just like Texas FFA, came out victorious! In fact, the Spurs have won every game in the six-year history of Texas FFA Spurs Night.
After the game, FFA members got the chance to go down to the court for “Chalk Talk” with Spurs player George Hill. Members were able to ask Hill questions and learn more about his experiences as a basketball player and a leader. Overall, the night was a definite success for not only FFA members, but also the San Antonio Spurs!
