Coach Grady Burnett arrived in Wylie as the head football coach in 1964 and held the position until 1970, when he moved into administration. In his first season as head coach, the Pirates went 9-1 and earned a spot in the state playoffs.
Burnett stepped away from coaching in 1970 to become the principal of Wylie High School. At that time, the high school was housed in the building now known as Harrison Intermediate. A new high school was constructed on Hilltop Lane and opened in 1976. Burnett continued as principal there until his untimely death in 1980.
When the newest Wylie High School building opened on FM 544 in 1996, the old high school became Wylie Junior High. In 2003, that school was renamed Burnett Junior High in his honor.

The District Opener Friday Night will be a good matchup between your 1-2 Wylie Pirates and 2-1 McKinney Lions.
The Pirates came to the game on September 11th against the Richardson Eagles and they knew what they wanted. They were a cohesive force dominating the field. The defense wanted a taste of the scoreboard so on a fumble recovery, they scored a TD. The Pirates had a goal, they executed the plan and they were successful. The Pirates have been working hard the last two weeks and are sure to show the fans what they are made of.
Kick off is at 7:30 at Ron Poe Stadium, McKinney, TX.
