360° – Will Adcock faces physical challenges

During the football season, senior kicker Will Adcock injured his right leg’s quadricep by partially tearing it, and this caused Adcock to miss many games and opportunities.

“I was on a path for most field goals in a season and career in Shreve football history,” Adcock said. “I believe I would have broken the record for the longest field goal [50 yards].”

Adcock has gained many achievements and believes the injury is a set-back.

He has gotten 1st team all-district defender twice. He was an overall district MVP and was on an all-metro team last year. He was also 2nd team all-district in football last year. Adcock was selected for the Louisiana Football All-Star Game and plans to play in December.

He said he sees the injury as a learning experience.

“I am definitely more humbled now and realized how much sports mean to me,” Adcock said. “I realize now that you must take advantage of every opportunity you have and not to take what you have for granted.”

360° – Mary Beth Tinker talks to Captain Shreve students

Mary Beth Tinker, of the 1969 Supreme Court case Tinker v. Des Moines, spoke to The Enterprise staff and Barbara Doughty’s first-period American history class on Oct. 4 in an online video chat.

Students were able to virtually see Tinker and ask her questions about her opinions, experiences and views on past and present-day issues.

In 1965, Mary Beth Tinker, along with four other students, wore black armbands to school in protest of the Vietnam War. Because the school district had banned the wearing of armbands, Tinker was suspended. This First Amendment case went to the Supreme Court, and they ruled that public schools and their teachers or faculty could only censor a student’s speech if it caused a material and substantial disruption to the operation of the school.

“It was very inspiring because she was telling us about all her stories about the armband, and I felt that was very inspiring because she was at such a young age and able to do something with so much courage,” junior Demetrius Thompson said.
