Santa Anna Mountaineers Fall in Opener to the Meadow Broncos
Four first quarter turnovers, plus two others, led to a 14-46 loss to a very physical Meadow Bronco football team in the Zephyr Bonanza Classic. A lack of continuous blocking, plus turnovers, resulted in the Mountaineers playing defense much of the night.
Two missed early opportunities to score took away any chance the Mountaineers had of catching the Broncos. It seemed that the Mountaineers could never catch their second wind.
Coach Norris felt that the effort wasn’t bad, they just didn’t finish the plays on either side of the ball. He said, “We will take this game and learn a lot from it”.
The Mountaineers were led by Sophomore Jacob Herrod rushing for 100 yards and a touchdown. He also ran a kickoff back for another touchdown. The leading tackler for the Mountaineers was also Jacob Herrod with 13 tackles and one fumble recovery. Colby Nelson added eight solo tackles.
Next for the young Mountaineers will be the very talented Mullin Bulldogs at 7:30 Friday in Santa Anna.

Blood drive in Coleman on September 4
All blood types needed
A community blood drive will be held at the Senior Citizens Center in Coleman on Thursday, September 4. The Meek Blood Center bloodmobile will accept donations from 1:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. A record thirty five donors participated in the blood drive that took place on July 10.
“We are asking donors to please remember that the need for blood is constant. Even the regular of blood donors get busy in the summer with vacations and other activities and forget to donate blood. Blood donation only takes about an hour, and that hour could give someone else a lifetime,” said Frances Baker, donor recruiter for Meek Blood Center.
Changes have been made to streamline the screening process and some previous restrictions regarding medical conditions and medications have been lifted. Those who have eligibility questions can speak with the Meek Blood Center supervisor at 325-670-2880.
Each donor will receive a T-shirt and a complimentary total cholesterol test.
