Burrises publish football history

 

 

 

by Charley Robinson, contributing writer

Legendary Sabinal football statistician and Yellowjacket gridiron historian, Ross Burris, and his son Randy have co-authored a book, “Sabinal Yellowjacket Football History, 1919-2014.”

It’s a lifetime labor of love for the senior Burris, who was the Yellowjacket statistician for 42 years.

A few copies of the publication have been sold at Gabriel’s Loft (the old Ross Theater) in Sabinal, and there will be a table at the homecoming football game Oct. 16. The book will also be available at Gabriel’s Loft on Saturday morning, Oct. 17, during the homecoming parade. In the afternoon, there will also be a booth set up at Sabinal High School during homecoming activities.

Copies may also be obtained by accessing the website www.sabinalfootball.com. The book will remain on sale at Gabriel’s Loft when it is open.
