Freshman trades in pads for paint

Kyler Bullard’s life revolves around sports, and in Texas, nothing matches high school football on Friday nights. Already six-feet-five inches tall, the freshman said he had big plans in this arena.
"I had dedicated my life to every sport I play to try and help win state championships for our school,” he said. "I planned on being on varsity in football one day, too.”
Unfortunately, a concussion he suffered in the Yellow Jackets first game against Wimberley—his second injury of that nature—ended those hopes prematurely.
"As soon as I got to the emergency room, the doctor said I couldn’t play football anymore,” he said. "It took everything I had not to cry.”
After considering how he could fill this gap in his life, Bullard soon found it close to the sidelines where he used to suit up.
Known as the "Tunnel Team,” Bullard is now one of several students that paint their faces and keep the Llano faithful engaged in the game.
