Nic’s Last Football Game


Nic Burrell in MWSC vs. NWMSU


Northwest Missouri State spotted Missouri Western a 16-0 lead but battled back to win Saturday’s NCAA Division II playoff tilt in St. Joseph. The Bearcats outscored the Griffons, 27-7, in the second half to advance to the region semifinals against #2 Midwestern State, out of the Lone Star Conference.

Gallatin grad Nic Burrell played every snap on defense for the Griffons and registered eight tackles, including one for loss. The MWSU senior linebacker also spent a busy afternoon dropping into pass coverage against the Bearcats’ best receiver, #4 Tyler Shaw.

 For every tackle #36 had this year you could hear some where in the audience, “YEAH NIC!!!”,  from his very proud momma.

We were blessed this year to get to go to every game, away and home.

Here are a few pictures of some of his fans.

There were many other fans there, too.  Tom, Alan, Brice, Bill, Steve, Bobby, Bob, Jimmy, Mitch, Bradley, Stephanie, Aaron, Justin, Gracyn, Dianna, Mike, Kelly, Michael, Tony, Nana, Bailey, Marty, and Marcus just to name a few.

 I’m pretty sure Coach Partridge is telling Nic what a great job he just did!!!

It was a great ride!!


More later………….Sally
