FOOTBALL WEEKEND REPORT: Tello leads Burbank to win over McCollum

Knights post second-straight shutout

AREA TEAMS INCLUDED: Burbank, East Central, Holy Cross, McCollum.




The Bulldogs (2-2, 1-1) picked up their first District 28-5A win Sept. 26 at the SAISD Sports Complex with a decision over McCollum (1-4, 0-2).

Senior quarterback Daniel Tello (110 yards, 21 carries) scored Burbank’s first two touchdowns on runs of 6 and 91 yards. McCollum’s Mike Ramirez (146 yards, 15 carries), who returned from a hyperextended knee and tibial fracture, responded with a 76-yard scoring run.

“Mike was only in there for a short time, but he definitely made a big impact,” McCollum coach Juan Hinojosa said. “We still weren’t able to win but, hopefully, it’ll be a big boost for our team.”

Rubyn Salazar (119 yards, 14 carries) capped his career-best rushing day with a 48-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Holy Cross 48, Cornerstone Christian 0

The Knights (3-1, 1-0) recorded their second-consecutive shutout in their TAPPS District 3-II opener against Cornerstone Christian (3-2, 0-1) Sept. 27 at Harlandale Memorial Stadium.

Greg Scott ran for 77 yards and two touchdowns. Nazario Coleman passed for 103 yards, including a 78-yard touchdown to Steven Villela. The Holy Cross quarterback also ran for an 18-yard score.

East Central 34, Del Rio 24

The Hornets (2-3) won its final non-district game Sept. 26 at Del Rio (2-2), erasing a 10-7 halftime deficit as Justin Upshaw-Mendoza threw for 209 yards and two touchdowns.

Senior Wanya Ward (155 yards, 4 receptions) was the recipient on East Central’s first two second-half scoring passes. Upshaw-Mendoza clinched the victory with a five-yard run with 4:14 remaining.
