Bulletin Staff Report

TexasFootball.com selected the Bangs Dragons as Class 2As Army Strong Team of the Week after their upset of three-time defending district champion Early in the 8-2A opener.

According to a press release, Bangs was chosen for the honor because of its teamwork, dedication, discipline, personal courage and integrity, values shared by U.S. Army Soldiers.

The U.S. Army is recognizing the student-athletes at Bangs for demonstrating qualities similar to those exhibited by a U.S. Army Soldier, who is mentally, emotionally and physically strong, said Captain Marcus Brooks. We expect to see some of these young men competing at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, the college level, or maybe even professionally in the future.
