Page 1B Burnet Bulletin I Wednesday, September 21, 2016 I I I II I I I I Wayne Craig From the Dawg House the winner isi I I'll start this week with a big congrats to the newest homecom- ing royalty. Jax Noah and Elyssa Martinez were crowned King and Queen just before kickoff of Fridaynight's homecoming game. There were some great moments in Bulldog sports this week as well. The varsity Lady Dawg vol- leyball team turned a comer with a confidence building win over district opponent, Taylor. As far as positions played, some were taken out of their comfort zones, but I, along with many others were proud of their response. Not that Taylor is a power- house team, but the way our girls won brought on lots of smiles and joy, and hopefully momen- tum builds from there. The 2016 Bulldog football team is drawing some large crowds and it was awesome to see a packed house for home- coming. The Bulldogs have fans all fired-up with a 4-0 record. Their latest victim was the Crockett Cougars who fell to the Dawgs 44-18 on Friday night. District play will bring incredible challenges but it will be fun to see how it all unfolds. For now Llano is on the J'or..boaa.-our girls.i Ttie Volleyball teams will begin play in Llano at 5:00 p.m. Friday followed by the varsity football at 7:30 p.m. also in Llano. There was added excitement last week with the parade and bonfire thrown in the mix, and now that junior high sports is in full swing there's almost no end to games that you can take in. For those of you who have been to the Friday night games you know the talent doesn't end with those who suit up in pads and helmets. The Burner Esprit de Corp has fine-tuned their 'Orbit' halftime show each week, and if you haven't stayed in your seat you're missing out. The choreography of it all amazes me, to have that many moving parts look so fluid is no easy task. Countless hours of practice have been put in and the results are spectacular. A big Attawaytogo to Highlandette director Caity Clinton and band director Jason Jones, you guys along with your assistants have done it again! I'll close with a lead into my 'I See You' for this week. Over the years as a huge Bulldog fan myself I've gotten to know many longtime Bulldog fans and I love seeing those faces in the crowd, year in and year out. They're the ones, rain or shine, good or bad teams, that are loyal to the end. On several occasions I've even written up my own all dis- trict selections, so to speak, of the best Bulldog supporters I've come to know over the years. I've never released it in print, because I'd surely overlook someone, but I'm going to men- tion two today, off my list of about 20 people. Let me say this, we have some great cheerleaders, but Robby Robertson I see you my friend, and the passion you always show up with on game dayl It was contagious at Friday's pep rally and your love for the Dawgs never goes unnoticed. My second I see you is to Mr. Marvin Adams. You have loved, cheered, and supported every Bulldog sport imaginable for many moons. You've never been afraid to let refs hear your thoughts when a bad call was made, nor let a Bulldog athlete hear your cheers for the smallest of victories. You my friend are on my short list of rain or shine fans. That's all for this week. Thanks for reading the Burnet Bulletin. i i Crockett no match for homecoming, 44-18 BY WAYNE CRAIG BULLErlN SPORTS It was a week of homecom- ing fun at BHS, from a lengthy parade of floats, to the bonfire, and the crowning of the king and queen. There was lots of fun to be had. There were many painted on smiles, and some spectacular mums, but when the action started Friday night it was back to business for the Bulldogs. The Crockett Cougars rolled into town Friday night and the Bulldog wasted little time post- ing points. In their opening drive the Bulldogs rattled off eight-plays before Tyler Torres put three on the board for Burnet with a 28- yard kick. Great defensive play by Kyle Cavender, Alex Gonzalez, and Rowdy Holmes shortly forced a Cougar punt. The Bulldogs next offensive series ended on a fourth down attempt, but another Holmes pressured pass soon forced a second Cougar punt. Tyler Ford started Bumet's next drive with an up-the-gut 60- yard run to the Crockett four, and from there Koby Edwards darted in untouched for the first touchdown of the game. Torres' kick after sailed true giving the Bulldogs a 10-0 advantage with five-ticks left on the first quarter clock.
