For Brian Beasley, the Madison County Youth Association is a memory maker.
The youth football coach played for the MCYA Bulldogs as a kid. Now, he coaches his son, Hunter, on the Bulldogs. The elder Beasley chuckles, thinking back on one fond gridiron memory with Hunter, a game a couple of years back when the team held a big lead, and Hunter got some time at tailback.
“I’ll never forget he was turned this way (telegraphing where he was going to run), waiting to get the ball,” said Brian. “The first time he got the ball, he took off running and he ran backwards and they sacked him for a 10-yard loss. So he got back up there again, he turned sideways just like he did before. And that time he actually turned the corner and ran for like 20-something yards and got a first down. That right there is burnt into my head.”
