Will Pekar made the most of his only football season at Shiner.

Pekar became a starter at tackle for the Comanches as a senior after transferring from Shiner St. Paul. Pekar helped Shiner win the District 31-1A championship and advance to the regional playoffs before finishing the season with a 10-3 record.

The 6-foot-5, 288-pound Pekar was a first-team selection on the Advocate's All-Area Team and was also a first-team selection on the Texas Sports Writers Association and Associated Press Sports Editors Class 1A all-state teams.

Pekar's performance caught the attention of West Texas A&M University and he has made a commitment to attend the Lone Star Conference school, which is located in Canyon. Shiner athletic director and head football coach Steven Cerny said Pekar would sign a letter-of-intent with West Texas A&M on Monday.
The Buffaloes ended their 2005 season with a 10-2 mark, the first season to end with 10 wins since 1950, and is WTAMU's first winning season since 1998. The Buffaloes had won a combined seven games in the last four seasons. In 2005, WTAMU went 8-1 in LSC winning not only the LSC South, but the LSC Championship, the Buffaloes' first LSC title since 1986. For the first time in school history, WTAMU reached the NCAA-II Playoffs, where they earned a first-round bye and lost to Pittsburg State University (Kan.) in the second-round. source: WTAMU Football Article
Pekar played alongside guard Dylan Hagens, who will attend Baylor on a football scholarship, last season. Pekar graded out at 88 percent. He had 38 pancake blocks and 56 knockdowns.
