I don’t have any news to report this week, but I can fill you in on what I’ve been working on for the newsletter.
I interviewed congressional candidate Matthew Lucci Saturday and published an article on what I learned from that interview Friday.
I’ve also interviewed Burleson Elks sophomore running back Nate Jackson, who is the only sophomore in 5A-2 Region II District 5 in the top 10 in rushing yards, Burleson head coach Chad Worrell and Jackson’s personal running back coach Brandon Williams this week for a feature on Williams I’ll be publishing next week.
I’ll also be covering Centennial’s potential playoff-clincher against Azle at 7 p.m. tonight at Hornet Stadium in Azle. Make sure you follow The Burleson Buzz on Facebook for live updates.
