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.
