Badgers can do good job, coach warns

March 11-14, 1958 You can throw the book away this week, for this is the Brady-Lampasas game, and anything can happen. Size, weight and season records don’t mean much when these two squads get together. “We’d be all right if we could depend on them to play us like they do everybody else,” said Brady coach K.Y. Owens. But he knows’and the Bulldogs ought to know’that the Badgers are always at their best for Brady. “They’ll be ready for us all right,” Owens added. The Badgers began the season with some of the best material in District 18-AA, but a wave of illness and injuries has been dogging them all year. They now have a 3-5 record. “They’re big. They’re capable of playing good football. They look like Baylor running out on the field,” Owens said. Last week in Fredericksburg the Badgers held the Hillbillies in the first series and took a punt on the Lampasas 39. From there they marched right on down for the first touchdown of the game, but when they got behind they seemed to give up and Fredericksburg went on to win, 40-8. Around Brady this week Owens had noticed that everybody is still playing Llano, talking about the officiating and Hammons’ “I just hope the boys aren’t that way Friday night,” said Owens. * * * Doran Lemke heads Rochelle FFA Chapter The Rochelle FFA Chapter met Tuesday morning, Oct. 25, for the purpose of electing officers for the coming year and selecting a chapter sweetheart.
