As the Breckenridge High School football team prepares to kickoff the regular season this Friday, the community showed up for last week’s Meet the Bucks event to show its support.

In addition to the varsity football team, the crowd also had the chance to meet the junior varsity teams and the cross country and volleyball teams, whose seasons are already underway, as well as the cheerleaders and the Pride of Breckenridge Buckaroo Band.

The Lady Bucks Varsity Volleyball team plays mostly on Tuesdays and Fridays, and they will start district play on Sept. 13 against Brock. The Cross Country team will run in a meet at the Haskell Country Club today, Aug. 28, with meets continuing throughout the fall.

The Buckaroos football teams will play Jacksboro this week, with the JV teams playing in Jacksboro on Thursday, and the varsity team taking on the Tigers in Breckenridge on Friday, Aug. 30. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. in Buckaroo Stadium.

Reserved seat tickets for the 2019 football season are on sale from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the BISD administration office. Tickets will be sold only to last year’s ticket holders through Thursday, Aug. 29. Any remaining reserved seat tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, Aug. 30.
