HEARTBREAKING LOSS BRINGS THE SEASON TO A CLOSE

 

Last Saturday afternoon, the Cowboys fought hard but came up short in what turned out to be their final game of the year when they were defeated by the Louisiana College Wildcats 42-35.  The Cowboys at one point had a 14-7 lead but then the Wildcats rolled off 28 unanswered points.  Most teams would have called it a season by that point but not our Cowboys.  They clawed back out of that hole and scored 21 points in the 4th quarter and had a chance to tie the game but their last opportunity fell short. 

The Cowboys suffered three losses this season but they were never beaten.  Every team we played was happy at the end of the game.  The teams we defeated were happy that they didn't have to play our team any more and the teams that defeated us breathed a sigh of relief that the game was over.  Six wins (7 if you count Southwestern) gets the team back into winning season mode and this will be a great launching point for next year.  There are a lot of returning starters coming back on both sides of the ball so next year will be fun to watch. 

 

Parents Group News

This will be my last update of this web page.  I have passed the torch to our new President, Jill Paschal and you will be receiving updates on next season after the first of the year.   I want to take a second and thank all of my fellow officers; Vice President Beth Harris, Treasurer Carol Footer, Secretary Jill Paschal and members at large Jenean Mills and Kay Raspberry.  We would not have been as successful as we were without all the help they provided.  We also had a lot of help from members of the HSU staff.  The support of Chad Grubbs, Kim McPhail and Athletic Director John Neese was invaluable.  I also want to thank Coach Burleson and his staff for helping us.  Our goal for this organization was to provide parents with updated information on the football program and without Coach Burleson and his staff, that wouldn't have taken place. 
On behalf of the Parents Group I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas and a happy holiday season. 
We will see all of you down the trail and as always, remember to STAY PURPLE.
