Burleson ELKS Minor 1 team Coached by Bobby Martin ended the season with only one defeat 10-1, solidifying them as one of the top two teams. Burleson Elks played the Crowley Eagles on December 3rd at Cowboy Stadium, Losing a hard fought battle to earn the title of Brazos Valley 2017 Runner Up.
We are so proud of each of these teams the grit and determination they showed through out a long season. Good Luck in 2018 ELKS.
No Minor Accomplishment
Burleson Minor 2. Head Coach Bobby Martin
The Boys and Girls Club Minor 2 team had quite a year. Losing only once during the year, being knocked off early by Whitney, the team rattled off 8 consecutive victories to reach the Brazos Valley Football League Superbowl. Coach Bobby Martin's Minor 2 team took out Joshua in round 1 of the playoffs with a lopsided 50-0 score. In round 2, a tough Alvarado team was bested by a score of 22-12. In the Championship game, the Burleson boys played tough defense to notch their second shutout in 3 games and a berth in the Minor Division Superbowl by defeating Midlothian 1 12-0.
The Minor Superbowl was a defensive battle all the way. Burleson scored early to take a 6-0 lead and then hung on to that lead for the next 3 quarters. Shutting out the high-powered Crowley offense was something that no other team had been able to accomplish during the year. This was a heartbreaker for Crowley who would lose in the Superbowl with a 6-0 score for the second consecutive year. The victory would give the Burleson2 team a 12-1 record on the year. Congratulations to the boys on a great season!
The Burleson Boys and Girls Club had a lot of success this year in the Major(5th and 6th grade) division, but one team made it
all the way to the Brazos Valley Superbowl! Coach John Mueller's Major 2 team went into the playoffs with a head of steam knocking off Cleburne 34-8 in the first round. In the second round, a re-match with Crowley that went into overtime the first contest took place. A 32 point offensive output proved too much for Crowley to overcome and they fell 32-22.
The Conference Championship featured two teams from Burleson; the Major 5 team led by coach Trevor Bissell and Major2.
The Championship game proved to be everything you'd want out of a big game. The Major 2 team prevailed with a narrow 14-12 victory and earned the right to compete for the Brazos Valley Football League Major Superbowl. The game featured a rematch with Joshua who defeated the Burleson squad earlier in the year. The first half was close as the Burleson Boys played great defense and ball control offense. In the end, the Joshua team came up with the victory. Hats off to the boys for fighting hard and making it this far which in itself is an amazing accomplishment!
Burleson Boys and Girls Club Major2. Head Coach John Mueller
Another team that found itself with a trophy on Superbowl Saturday was the Major 4 team led by coach Wes Tatum. The Major 4 team was competing in the Challengers Championship game. This game featured teams that lost in the first round, but continued to battle until the end. With a 14-6 victory over Midlothian 4 and a 12-6 victory over Cleburne 2, Coach Wes' boys found themselves matched up with Midlothian 2 for the Challengers Championship.
Down 12-0 at halftime, Coach Wes rallied the troops for a second half comeback! In a very exciting finish, a touchdown pass with seconds remaining sealed the 14-12 victory for Burleson Major 4. What a great way to end the season!
Burleson Boys and Girls Club Major4. Head Coach Wes Tatum
For the first time in Burleson Boys and Girls club history, we will be sending not1, not 2, but 3 teams to the Brazos Valley Superbowl!!! In the Bantam Division, coach Andy Barrett's defending Superbowl Champion team puts their undefeated mark up against an undefeated Crowley team. The Minor Division will feature a matchup between coach Bobby Martin's team
who will also face Crowley, looking to redeem themselves after a 6-0 defeat in last year's Superbowl. In the Major Division, Coach John Mueller will challenge Joshua for Superbowl glory.
It is very special indeed to have a team from each division representing your town in the Superbowl. To celebrate this special occasion, a pre-game party was held with all 3 teams to get the boys pumped up for the big game. The teams will be riding to the Brazos Valley Superbowl, held in Kennedale High School, in style. A Hummer Limo has been rented to transport the players and cheerleaders to the big game. The games will take place at Kennedale High School Stadium with the Bantams playing at 4pm., the Minors playing at 6pm., and the Majors playing at 8pm. Please come out and support these teams as they try and take home Superbowl Championships!
The Bantam 1 Elks capped off a great regular season with a Brazos Valley Superbowl victory! The team finished the season with an 11-1 record. The one loss came from Kennedale who lost the rematch in the American Conference Championship Game. The Superbowl game featured the Hillsboro Eagles who came into the Superbowl on an 8 game winning streak The game's first touchdown was scored by Elk's quarterback, Landon Whitley. The Elks took an 8-0 lead into the 2nd quarter when Hillsboro struck with a 30 yard td run. The Elks had an opportunity to extend their lead before halftime, but ran out of time on the 3 yard line. The second half was all Burleson as the Elks controlled the ball for the entire 3rd quarter and then Whitley scored about a minute into the 4th quarter to extend the Elks lead to 16-6. After a 4 and out, the Elks once again scored making it 24-6 with less than 2 minutes remaining. That's how the game ended leaving the Bantam 1 Elks as the champions.
Coach Andy Barrett's Bantam 1 Elks were joined by coach Curtis Mickey's Bantam 2 and Chad Freeman's Bantam 3 teams as playoff teams. The Bantam 3 team won their 1st round game over Midlothian but lost to Burleson 1 in round 2. The Bantam 2 team advanced to the National Conference Championship game after defeating Midlothian 2, but were defeated by the Hillsboro Eagles for the right to play in the Brazos Valley Superbowl. With all this success in the Bantam division, the future looks bright for the Elks.

Don’t Rain On Our Parade!!!
The annual Burleson Elks Homecoming Parade was a victim of the stormy weather we have been experiencing. A lot of work went into the floats and, unfortunately, the many Burlesonians that gathered for the parade didn’t get to see them. The Pee Wee Elk football players and cheerleaders still managed to have a good time! Below are some pictures taken before we were soaked.

Bantam 1 goes to the Super Bowl!!!
Congratulations to the Elks Bantam 1 team on making it to the Super Bowl. That's 3 out of 4 years that Burleson was represented in the Brazos Valley Bantam Super Bowl!!!!!!!
The Brazos Valley Football League Bantam Division crown belongs to Burleson for the second consecutive year! Unlike last year when the team scratched and clawed its way to the Superbowl, this team mowed down every team in the league with ease. Going into the playoffs undefeated, coach Andy Barrett's Burleson squad started off with a first round bye. In round 2, a 32-0 rout of Alvarado marked the first time that team had been shutout
