Even though it’s not quite September, high school football season started last night in Texas.
My sons’ former school began its campaign towards another district title and playoff berth against a smaller yet talented nondistrict rival. Although my kids have graduated, I still support our mighty, mighty Bulldogs . . . both with my cheers and my Nikon equipment.
There was a spirited crowd for the opener. Expectations are high for another great season.
Of course, the band and Angels started out strong with new uniforms and a terrific routine. In the past, they’ve often been the best part of the action . . . especially during an awful, two-year stretch when the football team won very few games.
But despite many highlights on offense and defense, our opponents took advantage of two interceptions run back for touchdowns and an amazing running game. Our Bulldogs finished up on the short end of a 38-21 score.
Fortunately, this game doesn’t count in the standings. I’m looking forward to lots of district wins, and, hopefully, lots of better photos of outstanding plays in the weeks to come.
