“By the time home games are over, local restaurants are closed,” said Mueller. “The Fifth Quarter gives kids a place to be on Friday night, where they can get together and celebrate with a great meal.”

Born and raised in Mason, Mueller spent 24 years with the Arizona Highway Patrol, retiring in 2000. He and his wife Brenda returned to Mason, and Corky says cooking for the Fifth Quarter is his way of giving back to the community.

“To me, there’s no better way to pay back than with good food to the Punchers and to help these kids as much as I can,” Mueller added.

The Mason Punchers, one of the heavyweights in Class 2A football, kick off their home season on September 7 when they meet the Johnson City Eagles on the field. Who knows who will win, but one thing is for sure – the Fifth Quarter will carry on in Mason and other small towns as a Texas tradition of football, friends, family, and food.
