Sullivan: Be careful where you use fireworks

December 26, 2012

District 4-1A recognizes Forsan Buffaloes

FORSAN — The Buffaloes will be losing some gridiron stalwarts this year, including quarterback Marcus Cervantes, safety Trevor Burchett and runningback Brendan Roman.

Luckily for Head Football Coach Jason Phillips, he has more all-district selections expected to return next year than are graduating.

“We had a good senior class this year,” Phillips said. “Especially with all the injuries — most of them were to seniors — but they were a big part of our success and helped us build our program. I am proud of those guys.”
