Garrison, Texas – October 18, 2010 – Dave Campbell's Texas Football is proud to announce that the Garrison High School Bulldogs football team has been named the Army Strong Team of the Week for Division 1A.
The Bulldogs were chosen for this honor because of their teamwork, dedication, discipline, personal courage and integrity, values shared by U.S. Army Soldiers.
"Garrison had an unbeaten record heading into Friday's game against Alto, but this was the Bulldogs' chance to make a statement against a quality opponent, and they took advantage. Garrison's Dustin Strahan ran for a 5-yard TD run with 5:28 left, and an extra point by Nathan Burkhalter gave Garrison a 28-27 victory," said Adam Hochfelder, general manager of Dave Campbell's Texas Football. "Garrison improved to 7-0 on the season and 2-0 in District 10-1A DI competition."
The award will be presented to the team at a time to be determined later this week by a representative of the U.S. Army.
"The U.S. Army is recognizing the student-athletes at Garrison High School for demonstrating qualities similar to those exhibited by its Soldiers. Student-athletes and Soldiers share similar values, but more importantly they must be mentally, emotionally and physically strong," said CPT Anthony Whittaker. "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."
