Hudgins named Academic All-State

Burnet senior, Zac Hudgins, was recently named to the 2018 Second Team Academic All-State team. Hudgins received this honor for the work he put into his senior campaign not only on the field as a Bulldog offensive lineman, but also in the classroom as a student athlete. The Texas High School Coaches Association takes many things into consideration including GPA, SAT/ACT scores and class rank when making their selections. Congratulation to Zac on this prestigious award.

Floyd brings home the gold medal

Former Bulldog athletes Grayson Floyd and Rod Corbin were all smiles as they posed for a photo with Floyd's new gold bling. Floyd, trained by Corbin, totaled 1,650 pounds at the annual Fort Worth Police Games to earn a first-place finish in the 275 pound class.

In case you don't recognize the two beefy former Bulldogs pictured here, they are 2011 Burnet graduate Grayson Floyd, on the left, and 1988 graduate Rod Corbin, on the right.

It only takes a glance to see they have spent lots of time in the weight room.

Corbin spends some of his spare time training a select few powerlifting athletes these days and he's getting real good at preparing those athletes for golden opportunities.

You may recall a story from last summer where a Burnet County officer, Jeremy Stewart, overcame some real tough odds to win the 2017 Fort Worth Police Games gold under Corbin's direction, well now there's a new chapter.

Corbin himself spent time in the powerlifting limelight winning gold at seven of seven meets that he competed in over the past years, but this article is more about what Mr. Grayson Floyd has accomplished lately.

The score to last Friday’s district opener between Burnet and China Spring may appear to be a runaway at first sight, but in fact it was a slow methodical process. The Cougars brought a quality team to Burnet, with a No.7 state ranking, but all things didn’t come easy for the boys in blue.

A scrappy Bulldog team showed up to play, and even captured the first lead.

Quarterback Chandler Galban found his big brother Sterling Galban on a deep middle ball during Burnet’s second series and the rest was history as the elder Galban turned on the jets for a 68-yard score with 8:14 on the first quarter clock. The PAT failed, 6-0 Bulldogs.

The Cougars answered with a nine-play drive; Cougar Erik Hart broke a few tackles and took it the final 15-steps to put the visitors up 7-6 with 5:34 in the first.

Burnet deputy takes gold against odds

Following his first powerlifting competition, just 16 months after suffering a fractured back, Jeremy Stewart shows off two first place medals he earned at the Annual Texas Police Games.

Burnet investigator Jeremy Stewart always knew he wanted to turn his everyday workouts into something bigger. He searched around and found that he had a love for the sport of powerlifting and it didn’t take long for his desire to compete to grow.

“Working out and staying in shape just comes with the job,” said Stewart. “Using that to compete makes going to the gym a little easier.”

So Stewart set his sights on competing in an annual powerlifting event featuring Texas police officers, but in February of 2016 lifting became the farthest thing from his mind.

During a police chase in Burnet County Stewart was involved in a terrible accident that left him with fractured vertebrae in his back. His plans of competing quickly changed to just recovering so he could return to his job.

It took the deputy six months to get his release and get back to his plan of action.

Seniors prevail in Powder Puff contest

Burnet senior Lexey Parker takes a quick toss and tries to avoid having her flag pulled by juniors Savannah McHam and Marissa Escamilla. Parker did a nice job running the ball for the Seniors in their 26-13 victory over the Juniors last Wednesday.

By Wayne Craig Bulletin Sports The very first football game played on Burnet’s brand new field just days after its completion was the annual Junior versus Senior Powder Puff game. The field itself looked great, but depending on who you asked it wasn’t necessarily a ‘level’ playing field. The Juniors felt slighted on a couple of occasions, by the all senior refs, including on a pick-six play that was never fully resolved, but it’s all in fun and when the one-hour time limit ran out the Seniors claimed the victory, 26-13. The Junior girls took first possession and after a good start with a deep pass from Lyndsi Woods to Beth Boyd the eleventh-graders were knocking on the door. They went back to the air on the next play but Senior Abby Bullock ended their hopes with an interception. Following a couple of short passes from Natalie Frank to Lexey Parker and Madelinne Deitrick, Izzy Ramon busted loose on a reverse and was stopped just short of a touchdown by Jayci Craig.
