A hot Waco day and a talented, speedy Baylor side were no obstacle for the alumni squad on Saturday. Depth and experience helped the old guys to a 32-21 victory.
Beautiful pop passes of the ground, some excellent ball movement, and powerful scrummaging all were key factors in the alumni win.
Baylor’s young side had some nice runs as well, with some good runs by Jon Hosket and Brent Jakubec that made the alumni look pretty foolish, but for being old and out of shape, we all held our own offensively and defensively. Props go out to Blake Rodgers, the BURFC Captain, for having his boys out there early to setup and playing solid, clean rugby this early in the season.
We appreciate all the hard work that went into this event, and all the donations of time and money from alumni, parents, friends, and players. This year was a huge success and we will only build on that success in future years.
