Younger Elks drawing praise
Each spring, Burleson football coach Gray McElroy preaches the need to get his younger players as much playing time as possible.
The Elks will close out spring football drills with their annual spring game at 7 p.m. Friday at Burleson ISD Stadium.
Monday morning, McElroy talked about some players on defense and offense that have already made impressions on the coaching staff and will have one final chance to show their talents on Friday night.
“Spring is all about getting to evaluate the younger kids,” McElroy said. “It’s the same thing every spring. You want to get your young players more reps in hopes of seeing what they can do.”
