Burton's Vicente Veliz

Burton’s Vicente Veliz (8) deflects a pass during a non-district game against Brazos on Sept. 11 at Panther Stadium in Burton. The Panthers’ defense, including Veliz, who plays defensive back, has been solid this season, but the offense, which features both Veliz and freshman Colby Beck under center, has struggled en route to a 0-4 record.

Jason Hodde insists the Burton Panthers are doing everything right Monday through Thursday.

But Fridays continue to be his young football team’s achilles heel.
