State honors 'Speedy' Gallardo


Over the holiday break elite football honors were released including All State recognitions and All CenTex selections. Burnet’s quick and shifty junior receiver Steven Gallardo earned a spot on both teams with an outstanding 2015 campaign. Gallardo tallied 1,212 yards receiving on 84 receptions and found the endzone on 12 of those catches. He also added 120 rushing yards and three more touchdowns on the ground. His efforts caught the eyes of many and earned him a spot on the All State team with an honorable mention selection. Gallardo also reeled in a First Team All CenTex honor. Neither of these are easy to come by and you can bet Bulldog fans are excited to see more of this young man’s talents in 2016.

Relax, worry, celebrate...

From the Dawg House

By Wayne Craig

 

I had very little sports coverage over the past two week and it was almost a shock to the system, but there were a variety of emotions in my downtime.

It was Christmas time, so of course there were lots of reasons to be joyful. My family celebrated six birthdays in the past few weeks, from the newest members, a few teenagers and a few wiser women in our group. Needless to say lots of candles were blown out.

It’s usually fun when the family gets together as it was for a few Christmas light tours and a large Chinese gift exchange, but there was also some worry in my time off.

My Dad spent one week, including Christmas day, in Round Rock Seton Williamson Hospital. After many tests and much worry he was eventually released to come home, and there’s now a plan in place, along with many prayers that will hopefully make for a healthier year in 2016.
