Freshmen Bulldogs fight to tough loss against Wimberley
by Brady Keane BCC Sports
The freshmen Bulldogs football team battled in a
tight game with the Wimberley Texans last
Thursday night, eventually falling by a score of
The offense flourished all night for the Bulldogs as
running back Trevor Leggett continued to shine.
After the Bulldogs fell behind 14-0 to the Texans,
Leggett busted through the Wimberley defense
and showed off his speed for a 65 yard rushing
touchdown. The early score kept the Bulldogs in
the game, and Leggett continued to run over,
around, and right by the Texans all night on his way
to over 100 yards rushing.
"I had to keep reminding myself not to look back
on that touchdown run!" Leggett joked. "The
linemen blocked really well all night, and they did a
great job opening holes to run through."
The Bulldogs maintained a balanced attack as
quarterback Bryce Boyd continued his impressive
season both in the passing and running game.
Boyd connected with receiver Connor Chesshir for
a 5 yard touchdown and ran one in on the goal line
for his second touchdown of the night. Chesshir
added an 18 yard rushing touchdown later in the
fourth quarter for the Bulldogs final score.
"The offense played very well," Boyd said. "It was
probably the best game we've played all year. We
executed both dimensions of our offense very well,
and it gives us some momentum going into the
next few games."
After Wimberley opened the game with
touchdowns of 60 yards or more on their first two
plays, the Bulldogs settled down both on the
offensive and defensive side of the ball to outscore
the Texans 30-24 throughout the rest of the game.
Without those two plays, the Bulldogs would have
come out with a win over one of the top teams in
"We came out with the wrong mindset," Leggett
said. "As soon as we realized we could play with
them, we started playing the best game we've
played so far this season."
The loss puts the freshmen team at (0-1) in
district play, however the Bulldogs certainly
showed lots of potential in the running and passing
game behind Leggett and Boyd, as well as some
bright spots on the defensive side. Bandera will
look to bounce back tonight, as they host the
Canyon Lake Hawks immediately following the
middle school games.
"If we start playing the way we know how to from
the opening kickoff, we can beat any team in the
district," Boyd said.
