Gilmer 50, Liberty-Eylau 45


The Gilmer Buckeyes outlasted a very athletic Liberty-Eylau Leopards team at Jeff Traylor Stadium in Gilmer to kick off the 2015 Texas high school football season.

Demarco Boyd's 12-yard run for first down yardage on 4th and 1 from his own 49 during Gilmer's final possession allowed the Bux to run out the clock and preserve the 50-45 victory.

Gilmer hosts Pine Tree in its next game on Friday, Sept. 4.
