Graupe, 50, disappeared from his northside neighborhood in Austin some time on the afternoon of November 24, 2009. The slightly-built, dark-haired man’s features may be familiar to many in the community because his family has continued to post his likeness on yard signs and in buildings, hoping that someone, somewhere may know something that will allow the family to bring Paul home.

Bramble rumbles for six touchdowns against Providence, FC wins 49-21 PDF Print E-mail

Floyd Central senior quarterback Kyle Bramble ran for 312 yards on 21 carries, and scored six touchdowns Friday night against the Providence Pioneers at Floyd’ Ron Weigleb Stadium. The Highlanders won the contest 49-21. It was the first time new Providence coach Larry Denison had coached against the Highlanders.
Bramble got the Highlanders off to a 7-0 start in the 1st quarter, when he scored from 54 yards out. The Pioneers knotted it up at 7-7 after Jared Griffith scored a TD from 15 yards out.
Bramble continued to do damage in the 2nd quarter, scoring three more touchdowns.
The first of the three was off of a 31 yard pass from Highlander quarterback Bryce Smith. Bramble then proceeded to score the remaining two off of runs of 13 yards and 39 yards.
Jason VanBuren provided the extra point kicks for the Highlanders all night, never missing a kick
“We’re excited about being 2-0,” said Floyd Central coach Brian Glesing. “(But) they’re (Providence) still a solid football team. We have Kyle Bramble. It’s hard to stop him. He’s pretty good.”
Glesing also said that the turnovers that his team committed will have to be taken care of, but he thought that they recovered nicely on defense during the contest. He also said that the errors will have to be eliminated for them to have any chance to go anywhere in the post season.
After leading 28-7 after the first half, Bramble ran in another TD with 5:13 left in the 3rd quarter, this time from 52 yards out.
Josh Hack scored for the Highlanders next, off of a 22 yard pass from Bryce Smith. That put the hosts up 42-7, but neither Providence nr Kyle Bramble were done for the night.
Jared Griffith scored for the Pioneers wioth 11:44 left in the contest, 22 yard run.
Bramble then scored his final TD of the evening when he scored form 67 yards out with 11:32 left, putting the Highlanders up 49-15.
Zach Johnson scored a late touchdown for the Pioneers with 6:46 left in the game.
While he was glad to get the win, Glesing was simply hoping that his team could improve offensively over the coming weeks.
“We’ve got to get back to the drawing board,” he said. “We need to be more crisp and sharp offensively. We’ve got to do the right things offensively.”
The Highlanders rolled up a total of 532 yards, with Providence racking up a composite of 214.
Floyd had 21 first downs, to 14 for Providence.
The Highlanders will be back next week when they travel to Madison to take on the Cubs.
