Generation Z and the World of Tomorrow

It is a whole new world out there and success starts here! Generation Z and our future are building a new and exciting lifestyle for themselves. Navigating this new frontier takes courage, fortitude, persistence, and courage. This fun, energetic and interactive session is designed to update parents about the 21st Century workplace needs of the employer and the future employability needs of their child (ren). Parents will walk away with a better understanding of how they can empower their child (ren) to be the very best they can be and to build the skill sets to “sell” themselves as the best “products” on the market for any and all employers in the world.

Friday Night Lights: 2019 Season Recap

The Bandera Bulldogs finished the season with a 21-14 loss to the Hondo Owls in the first round of the playoffs. Rather than concentrating on that particular game, I would like to take you down memory lane...to remember how special this 2019 football season was for Bandera.


Week 1 - Bulldogs won the home opener vs. SA Memorial 20-13.


Week 2 - Bulldogs won the 2nd home game vs. SA Christian 42-28.


Week 3 - Bulldogs won the first road game vs. St. Anthony 40-12. Bandera got to play at UIW (a nice college stadium - with a playoff type atmosphere)


Week 4 - Bulldogs beat a very good Comfort Bobcat team 35-12. Comfort went 3 rounds in the playoffs (losing to the #2 ranked team in the state). They finished the year 10-3.


Week 5 - Bulldogs pull their first BIG upset with a road win vs. Crystal City 24-7. Harris Poll had us picked to get beat by 20 points. Bandera had other plans as we upset Crystal City at their Homecoming game.


Week 6 - Bulldogs travel to Cuero (home of the defending State Champions). Bandera shocks the State of Texas with a 16-15 win over the Gobblers (bagged ‘em up some turkey). It was the first time Bandera beat Cuero. It was also the first time Bandera had started the season 6-0 in 25 years!!! Dave Campbell’s awarded Bandera the “4A Team of the Week”.


Week 7 - Bulldogs fall short for the first time - losing to Wimberley. The Wimberley Texans were a strong team...evident by the fact that they are still playing. They are currently one of only 8 teams left in the hunt for the 4A-D2 State Championship.


Week 8 - Bulldogs win a come from behind thriller at home vs. Llano 28-21. This game clinched the first playoff appearance for Bandera in 10 years!


Week 9 - Bulldogs take care of business with a road win over Austin Eastside 49-6.


Week 10 - Bulldogs take on Navarro with a chance to clinch the District Championship. Very few people thought we even had a chance. Harris Poll had us picked to get beat by 35 points. Somebody forgot to tell the Bulldogs. Bandera played scrappy and with passion...falling short 41-38 in the last minute. It was probably our best played game. Navarro was ranked #1 in the Region and they are still playing. They are currently one of only 8 teams left in the hunt for the 4A-D2 State Championship. Navarro and Wimberley play this week for a chance to be a Final Four team in the State.
