I lost an aunt Sarah Townsel-Plair of Starkville, and an uncle Peter Townsel of Milwaukee, WIsconsin. I would love to find the connection before another member of our family passes away.  From what I see, we are very spiritual (ministers), athletic, and business minded individuals.  And not to mention, handsome and beautiful.  Thanks for your concern, keep us in your prayers.

I am thrilled to announce that the little boy who dreamed of becoming a pilot is now on his way.  Kendon Townsel is a freshmen at Middle Georgia College majoring in aviation management. Thank God this school immerses students in flight training immediately. Kendon already has made several solo flights! He is on track to earn his first pilot's license next semester! While this is a great accomplishment I am most proud that he has associated himself with a campus ministry and has become quite involved. He is one of the student leaders! Please continue to pray for him as he is well on his way to becoming a real Mighty Man of Valor!  Praise God! "

" Family,
We were very proud watching Derrick perform on Regional television last night. As you are aware Derrick is a freshman receiver on the Murray State Football team.You may not be aware that he is a starting receiver on the team and  also a kick returner.
Last night Murray State's game against Jacksonville State was broadcast via Comcast cable and even though Murray State lost 49 - 17 Derrick was outstanding with 5 receptions for 71 yards and great downfield blocking (as noted by the broadcast team ).
He received many compliments during the broadcast along with one of his teammates.The announcers called Derrick's name at least four times for outstanding play and noted that this freshman laden team should become a force in the future in the Ohio Valley Conference. Keep it up Derrick.

Think they might want to switch Derrick to defense.They gave up 260 yards
and two TD's in five plays while averaging 52 yards per catch.That's okay,
the Dolphins were not much better Saturday. Which of Derrick's games are you
going to? Maybe we can join you.

" Murray State University’s football team spent a significant portion of practice No. 9 going 11-on-11.  Both units, offensive and defensive, played well throughout.  In addition, the team continued to give attention to special teams work.

The first portion of practice saw punt blocking drills, station work and kickoff return drills.

During 7-on-7 play, freshman quarterback Zach Barnard completed a 35-yard pass down the left sideline to fellow freshman Sam Hensley.

In 11-on-11 action, Barnard hit Rod Harper down the right sideline for a 60-yard touchdown completion.  On another scoring drive, Barnard connected with Lee McGinnis for 50 yards before freshman Josh Jones took the ball in from the 2-yard line.

Freshman DERRICK TOWNSEL made a spectacular one-handed catch of a Ryne Salyer pass over the middle and accelerated past the defense for an 80-yard touchdown play.  Salyer later completed a 35-yard pass to freshman Mike Sweat.

Practice ended with work on field goals.

The Racers will return to the practice field on Sunday at 3:35 p.m.

Murray State opens its 82nd season of college football on Sept. 2 when the team travels to Columbia, Mo., to face the University of Missouri at 6 p.m.  The Racers' first home game of the Matt Griffin era will be on Sept. 23 when the team faces Illinois State at 6 p.m. at Stewart Stadium.

Murray State Football Announces 2006 Recruiting Class
(Feb 1, 2006) -- Murray State University Head Coach Matt Griffin was very happy today as he announced the signing of 26 football players who will become first year Racers in the fall.
"We are very excited about this year's group of signees," said Griffin. "The staff did a great job of identifying and recruiting these young men. Griffin's first recruiting class at MSU consists of six student athletes each from Georgia and Tennessee, five each from Kentucky and Ohio, three from Missouri and one from Wisconsin.
Griffin's will begin his first spring practice at Murray State on March 29.
Today is national signing day, the first day for potential football recruits to sign with the program of their choice, and some outstanding talent chose Murray State.

Derrick Townsel, 5-9, 170, WR, Memphis, Tenn. (Overton HS) Townsel caught 34 passes for 657 yards and eight touchdowns as a senior. He finished with 26 receptions, 541 yards and four touchdowns as a junior. Townsel was named all-region following his senior year and was twice named OHS Offensive Player of the Year. "Derrick is a joy to watch on the football field," Cahill added. "He is an unbelievable athlete with great hands as well."

" Dear Family,

We need to start planning for the next family reunion which we have had every
two years. Following that tradition the next reunion should occur in the summer
of 2007.We did not have a meeting at the 05' Reunion to discuss the logistics
of the 07' Reunion.We have had however suggestions from family members as to the possible locations of the 07' reunion. Those suggestions have included New York, N.Y.,Las Vegas, Nev. Grand Bahama,Bahamas, South Carolina(Hilton Head-Charleston), Savanna, Ga. and Florida (Orlando-Daytona-Tampa-Jacksonville).

I am going to ask the Florida Family Reunion Team to assemble within the next month to start the planning process for 07' and we all can decide afterward which family group takes on the major responsibility for the planning thereafter.

In the meanwhile if you have suggestions for the location of (and time of ) the next reunion please respond so we have your input. Suggestions can be in support of any of the locations above or some place else. I Will send out a survey but your e-mail response would be quicker and cheaper. Using the Family Connection website will be the best medium of all as a form will soon be added to the site to allow you to give your input.  LET'S GET IT STARTED IN HERE!!

" Derrick had 1 catch for 76 yards and a TD. They only threw to him once. He was also named to the All Metro Team. Only 11 players were named. I'm waiting for it to come out in the papers with a photo. His one catch was viewed on the local nightly news sportscast. I'm getting all his highlight films for the year. Will send some to Sonny to see if he can get it on the family website. See this week's www.commercialappeal.com for additional Derrick updates. "

" Thanks everyone for your support during my senior football season. Unfortunately we didnt make the play-offs; we only missed it by one game which was decided by a field goal in overtime. But I am glad to let you guys know that yours truly has been selected to play in the city-wide all-star game! My coach gave me the good news today. He also said that during these practices for the big game, about a dozen college scouts attend the practices each day, searching for recruits. So this is a big opportunity for me.

Hopefully, some family members here will  watch me play lol. The game is at MUS High School on Sunday, December 10th at 2 p.m. Again I thank everyone for their support. "

" Norman,
Don't think you are out of the title picture yet. There will be a lot of one loss teams free falling from the top ranks before the year is out. As for the future of the Hurricanes, they need to get by Virginia Tech(Nov.5th) in Blacksburg, where we are guaranteed to have five turnovers. Get past that and we'll talk in December. "

" Uncle Al, Mark, Nate & Derrick, Bobby, Roy...the Buckeyes looked good in defeat against Texas.  If they'd started that brother, we'd be in the Natl. title hunt.  As it is, we're probably going to play a Florida team in one of the bowls (after we beat Michigan).  Anybody want to make a bet, call me in December.

" Overton 18, Bartlett 15; Overton hangs on

Derrick Townsel caught a 31-yard pass from Ron Sampson in the fourth quarter to give Overton (2-2, 1-1) a Region 7-5A victory over Bartlett (2-2, 1-1) at Halle Stadium.

Bartlett, which scored the game's first touchdown on Craig Jones's 56-yard run, but trailed 12-7 at the half, had taken the lead in the fourth quarter on Antwan Jackson's 3-yard run and his two-point conversion run.

" NORMAN,
THE RESULTS OF KATRINA WHEN SHE CAME THROUGH OUR YARD AS A CATEGORY 1 HURRICANE GAVE US A LITTLE PECK, LIFTED HER SKIRT COMPLETELY OVER HER HEAD AND WENT TO NEW ORLEANS AND THE GULF COAST AS A FULL GROWN 5. WE WERE NOT PREPARED ( NO SHUTTERS UP) AND IT WAS PRAYER TIME ( DELIVERED BY LOREINE ) WHEN THE BRANCHES CAME DOWN AND I LOOKED OUT THE WINDOW AND SAW THE WIND TAKE THEM UP AND PLACE THEM ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE HOUSE.
