The Jesuit football team decided to sport its camouflage pants for last Friday’s game against Coppell. The game was played two days before the tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

“We got them for Veterans Day, as well,” Jesuit head coach Brandon Hickman said of his team’s pants. “We decided this would be a great weekend to break them out with 9/11.”

It was a tough night for the Rangers, though. Jesuit not only lost to Coppell, 35-28, in a game that came down to the wire, but the Rangers also lost starting quarterback Jack Brezette after he suffered a broken leg on the final play of the game.

Brian Buell will start at quarterback for the Rangers when they open District 9-5A play against W.T. White one week from Friday.
