While the temperatures are screaming it’s still summertime take a quick drive around the BHS Campus and you will be able to spot fall all around. At just about anytime from early morning to late evening you can find a group of Bulldogs or Lady Dawgs preparing for their upcoming season, and some of those have already begun to play.



Battle for Burnet County still simmers the blood



Call it an old flame I cannot put out, but going into last week the rivalry between Burnet and Marble Falls simmered in my blood.

Ever since I can remember, the battle for Burnet County has been buzzing between our two towns for centuries.

Now, no one who came into the Burnet County area after the mid 1990s will understand how bad this rivalry has been.

Anyone reading this that showed up after that, is probably thinking “this lady is crazy,” “we have not played Marble Falls in a million years except for the scrimmage games,” and the rivalry isn’t that bad.

However, anyone like myself who grew up a predominate part of their life in this area knows how much bad blood has been between Burnet and Marble Falls.


Good openers for sub-varsity



The JV and freshman Bulldogs opened their 2016 football season on Thursday with games in Austin against Reagan. No extended stats were available for the freshman game but it was known that Burnet shutdown and shutout their opponent, 24-0.

In the JV game Austin Reagan scored in the first quarter on an 11-yard run. They took an 8-0 lead after successfully cashing in a two-point conversion.

Burnet answered in the second quarter with a 1-yard touchdown run by Ryan Jackson, but the conversion failed leaving the Dawgs trailing, 8-6.

The second half produced no scoring by either team. A late Burnet drive had team green moving quickly down the field but a questionable penalty put them in a big hole and they were unable to score. The game ended in Reagan’s favor, 8-6.

Despite the outcome it was a well fought battle by the JV. Many expect good things from this team moving into the season.


The storm after the storm, 55-12



The Burnet Bulldog football team opened the season in dramatic fashion Friday night with a 55-12 victory over the visiting Reagan Raiders. Skies were ominous but the game began as scheduled.

The rowdy Bulldog crowd was more than ready for some Friday night football, little did they know they would get some early Saturday morning football too.

After trading punts early the Dawgs struck first. Burnet running back Tyler Ford raced into the limelight early and often and proved to be built Ford tough as he busted through tackles again and again to help set-up Burnet’s first touchdown.

Quarterback Koby Edwards found the birthday boy Sterling Galban for the first score of the game on a 12-yard toss. There were more gifts to come for Galban. The drive lasted seven plays and covered 68-yards putting Burnet up 7-0 after Tyler Torres hit the mark on the kick after with 5:07 left in the first.
