Dave Campbell’s Texas Football has announced that the Blanco High School Panthers football team has been named the Army Strong Team of the Week for Division 2A in Week 13.
The Panthers were chosen for this honor because of their teamwork, dedication, discipline, personal courage, and integrity, values shared by U. S. Army soldiers.
In week 13, the Panthers avenged an earlier loss to district foe Lago Vista, getting a pair of TD passes from Tanner Rogers and holding off a furious Vikings comeback to pull out a 14-11 win.
“The Army is recognizing the student-athletes at Blanco High School for demonstrating qualities similar to those exhibited by its Soldiers,” said Major David A. Tolleson. “Student-athletes and Soldiers share similar values, but more importantly they must be mentally, emotionally, and physically strong.”
