Badger Football fans were treated to a wild, high scoring circus of a football game last Friday night. The Waco Robinson Rockets came to town with their high scoring passing game. Waiting for them was the Badger team, equipped with a new coaching staff in Troy Rogers and  team, that not only knew that game well, but considered it their new mission. The evening that ensued on Badger Field was a tit-for-tat aerial battle that saw every TD answered with another until time ran out on the clock. When it was over, the Badgers were unfortunately 2 points behind. It ended with the Rockets ahead 70-68, but the Badgers were reinvigorated with the knowledge that they can do this.

The Badgers will meet Wimberley, in another home game, on Friday at 7:30pm. Fans are ready for more of this exciting football.
