Mike Moritz- Police work can be mentally and physically stressful. The officers unwind from work and relax through physical fitness. John- "It is nice to get off work and go to the gym. It helps you wind down and feel good." Mike Moritz- The athletes were proud to represent San Angelo in the state games, and appreciate support from their hometown. Brian- "That is who we are here for, the people of San Angelo. Our foremost job is for the court, and i thought about the people at the municipal court." Mike Moritz - Officers Albertson and Gonzales are not resting on their laurels. They are already training for the national competition.
