ALEDO — Yes, the Burleson Elks lost their District 5-5A Division II football game to the Aledo Bearcats Friday night, 46-6. But don’t tell Elks coach Gary McElroy that his team got embarrassed.
Hank Meyer’s first play as a varsity quarterback still gives him nightmares.
As a freshman last season, Meyer fumbled the snap during Centennial’s playoff loss to Mansfield.
One mistake can swing a football game.
And in a rivalry game like Friday night’s “Hall of Fame/Boot Game” between Burleson and Centennial a turnover can be monumental.
ARLINGTON — Each week, Burleson’s defense steps things up to another level.
