Abilene, Texas – September 15, 2009 – Dave Campbell’s Texas Football is proud to announce that the Wylie High School Bulldogs football team has been named the Army Strong Team of the Week for Division 3A.
The Wylie Bulldogs were chosen for this honor because of their teamwork, dedication, discipline, personal courage and integrity, values shared by U.S. Army Soldiers.
“The Bulldogs topped the number eighth ranked team in Division 4A, Wolfforth Frenship, 21-7, with a dominating defensive performance,” said Adam Hochfelder, general manager of Dave Campbell's Texas Football.
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 Wylie 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 Captain Adam Drybread. "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."
