Two CCSO deputies recognized, thanked for efforts following dog mauling of boy in May

Quick thinking on the part of two Coryell County Sheriff’s Deputies in May helped save the life of an 11-year-old following a dog mauling.

Since that day, the boys’ grandparents, Eddie and Alisa Sherman, have been looking for ways to have the deputies’ efforts recognized.

Coryell County Sheriff’s Deputies Stew Crossman and Gilbert Esparza, joined by the Shermans, were presented Texas flags flown over the state Capital during a recognition ceremony Thursday outside the Coryell County Sheriff’s Office.

Gary Kafer, district director for Texas House Representative J.D. Sheffield, presented the flags to the deputies and expressed appreciation on behalf of Representative Sheffield.

Gabriel Sherman, the boy who sustained the brutal attack, has mostly recovered from his injuries and now lives with his mother in South Carolina, but that day is something neither he nor his grandparents will forget.
