Buffalo Overpowers Groveton 46-36

TACKLE -- Jamaul Randle tackles a Groveton Indian ball carrier in the Bison 46-36 win over the Indians. Buffalo is now 2-1 on the season.

The Mighty Buffalo Bison loaded up and travelled to Groveton for their third football game of the season with the undefeated Indians.

The Groveton Indian nation , their fans and supporters, and the football media already had the final score tallied before Our Bison departed the city limits of Buffalo – they had already posting the results in their win column.

Not so fast geniuses ….Our coaches, players, parents, supporters, and this reporter did NOT agree with this analysis and had other plans for the outcome.

This Friday the 13th contest and results would be etched in Groveton’s bad memories like the ending to a Freddy Krueger horror movie.

Captains Jamaul Randle, Roberto Garcia, Brett Hoffman, and Dustin Morgan won the toss and wisely deferred reception to the 2nd half. Bison coaches and players chose to play defense to start this non-district contest.

The game started with Groveton on offense and after a quick 3 and out the Bison cranked up their offensive attack on their own 37. Buffalo drove the length of the field but a turn over inside the Indian 5yd line stopped the drive. This event angered Bison defensive standouts John Vaughn, Asa Henson, Reese Boyd, and the Mighty Herd stopped Groveton on the Bison 40.

Nucor Steel/ Willy 103.5 offensive player of the game Bison quarterback Brett Hoffman calmly took the field and quickly launched a 60 yd pass and run play to Jamaul Randle. The speedy Buffalo receiver raced into the Groveton end zone. The score with 5:40 left in the 1st quarter – Buffalo 6 Groveton 0.

Nucor Steel Plant Tour - A Leon County Success Story

NUCOR -- Clay Dodgen - Rebar Fabrication Manager, Jason Morris - Controller, Ross Simmons - Melt Shop Manager, Caleb Strother - Sales Manager, Travis Greene - Maintenance/Engineering Manager, Roger Young - Roll Mill/Shipping Manager, Cari Box - Cost Analyst, and Al Behr - VP/General Manager.

A team of Leon County Economic Development Association members led by President Tommy Neyland and Buffalo Mayor Jerrod Jones travelled to western Leon County to learn more about the success story of this Nucor Steel Jewett Texas plant built in 1975.

Upon arriving at the front entrance, it was clear to this reporter that the theme of this highly successful/employee driven manufacturing operation was “No One Gets Hurt on Our Shift Today.”

The tone was set from the beginning when our motor caravan was greeted professionally and swiftly by the Nucor guard station and we received paperwork and permission to enter the 700-acre facility.

Our group walked into the meeting area and was professionally greeted by 31-year Nucor veteran tour guide Johnny Greene and 9-year Nucor veteran cost analyst Cari Box. After a brief informative Nucor video, we received our safety gear – hard hat, safety glasses, protective jacket, head phones, and ear plugs. Theme understood!!!
