The GRHS Athletic Booster Club has created a new mobile app for GRHS sports teams. It will become your single source for sport team rosters, schedules, event locations/directions, social media feeds (Facebook, Twitter), Live Audio (GRHS I-Radio), video (YouTube), etc. There is a lot of data in this app and it will continue to be expanded for additional GRHS sports teams throughout the year. You can download it now for your Apple and Android devices for only $1.99 per download using the links below.
White Out shirts for the GRHS Varsity Football game against Foster will be sold this Thursday and Friday during all GRHS lunches for only $10. If any shirts are left over after Friday’s lunch, they will be sold at the football game. These shirts sold out last year during the Friday lunch periods. Get your shirt early before they are all gone.

I find myself drafting this letter the morning after the GRHS Baseball team captured the District Title in an extra inning thriller with a 5-3 victory over rival Foster. In fact, it has been a very exciting year for all Longhorn Athletic Programs. Many of our teams earned District Titles, UIL State Playoff Berths, and advanced deep into state playoff brackets, and we are still not done as our spring sports programs begin post-season play.
The GRHSABC would like to extend their congratulations to all our Coaches and Athletes for a very memorable year as well as our Best Wishes to those teams still competing. It is very exciting to see these young student-athletes building a legacy for future Longhorn generations. That is a testament to the entire GRHS community.
Like our sports teams the GRHSABC has accomplished much during this school year. As our sports programs increase in numbers so does the need for equipment, uniforms and training aids. Ensuring all our athletes and coaches have appropriate resources is a primary mission for the ABC. Through the hard work and dedication of the GRHSABC Board of Directors, Parent Reps, and numerous volunteers and through the generosity of our Corporate Sponsors and all of you who contributed to the ABC through membership and donations, I am pleased to announce the following highlights.
In 2013-14 the GRHSABC:
Provided over $20,000 in financial assistance to Longhorn Sports Programs.
Will award in the coming weeks, 7 scholarships worth a total of $12,000.
We would like to thank our outgoing Board Members; Chad Yeaman, Kevin Duesterhoft and Jason D’Ambra and to congratulate and welcome our new Board Members; Lisa Watson, Jeff Galvan and Stuart Rimes.
Our Booster Club’s ability to assist Longhorn sports programs depends solely on our members, sponsors, and volunteers generosity. We encourage everyone to get involved, please feel free to contact any of our Board Members should you have questions or comments. Volunteers are always needed and appreciated.
Have a great summer and see you next Year.
