Basketball Accolades Don’t End on the Floor

Rob Stewart’s War Eagle basketball team’s run to the third round of the state playoffs was a magnificent feat. The memories generated will be remembered by the students, faculty, administration and town for many years to come.
 
As is usually the case when teams are this successful, the academic accolades of the players get overlooked. In addition, you will also see two Honorable Mention All-District players that some outlets did not report.
 
Also going unmentioned year in and year out is Coach Rob Stewart’s players academic records in his tenure at Oak Ridge and previously during his stint at Iola high School. There are no academic all-district awards for coaches. However, had there been any, Coach Stewart would be an annual winner.

Doug Sarant, Oak Ridge Now

Born and raised in New England, Doug promises he got to Texas as fast as he could. He earned the much needed "piece of paper" from Sam Houston State, proving to himself he could start and finish something. Doug's interests include coaching and playing any sport and still plays lacrosse competitively. He also enjoys going to dinner theaters, though he complains there just aren't enough of them in the area. Doug was brought up in a cultured environment, having suffered through dozens of symphonies and operas with his way too over-educated mother. At the end of the day, Doug is just a dad and husband and claims to be good at both.
