Sulphur Springs Athletic Director Greg Owens wants local businesses to know that a group is soliciting merchants’ money to sponsor an ad on a baseball poster that does not support our students of benefit SSISD in any way.The group is identified as Elite Designs Advertising Sales.
Wildcats Baseball Coach Jerrod Hammack said he didn’t know anything about the poster. Coach Owens says if someone wants to support our students, they should contact him at the High School. He adds most of the time a school person will contact a business to ask for their support. Athletes sell Wildcat Cards that benefit their sports team. Football coaches solicit ads for a football poster. Softball and baseball coaches sell advertising signs for stadium fences. The tennis coach sells signs for fences as the tennis complex. Basketball coaches sell signage for the SSHS Gym. Cheerleaders sell ads for football programs. Cheerleader sponsors also accept, shirts, balls and other items for use at sporting events.
Again to local businesses, the current baseball poster solicitation does not support SSISD or its students.
