The Ste. Gen Dragons football season came to an end after losing to undefeated Kennett. The Dragons finished the playoffs 1-1 and with that, we see not only the end of the season, but the last time some of these seniors will ever play. For senior Zach Burr, he may have laced his cleats for the last time.
Burr was a lineman for the Dragons and in 7 games he had 13 tackles and 2 sacks. For Burr, the individual stats and moments were not the most important things that occurred while on the field. It was playing as a cohesive unit and supporting each other that made the grind worth it. He does not plan on playing in college.
Q: How did you get started in football?
A: I got started my freshmen year. My dad played back in high school and kind of made it a tradition.
Q: Who have been your biggest influences in football, either directly or indirectly?
A: My biggest influences in football would probably be my dad and coach Weik. Both of those guys put so much time and dedication into this sport and they look at every player instead of one.
Q: What is one moment in your football career that stands out to you the most?
A: I didn’t have too many moments where I stood out too much myself alone but when we as a line are together, we really can put on a show at times.
Q: When football is over for your career, what do you think we’ll see you doing with your life?
A: After football I plan to go to State technical college in Linn, MO. I’m pursuing a career as an electrical lineman.
Q: What schools are you considering and do you plan to continue your football career in college?
A: I don’t plan on continuing my football career but I will really miss the sport and being together with the team.
Q: To all of the little ones that have dreams to do what you’re doing, what’s the best advice that you could give them?
A: For anyone that I would recommend this sport or any sport to in high school, I would highly suggest going into something. You’ll never regret it because you may never get that experience again in your lifetime where you are front and center of everyone and working as a team. The coaches take you on an amazing ride and without them, we would go nowhere.
