The Battlin’ Bear Football team is currently 3-1 in district after their 32-27 win against the Cleveland Indians last Friday night. The Bears will face Navasota at home this Friday, Nov. 10 to compete for the District Championship. The Bears are 4-3 for the season, while Navasota boasts a 5-4, 3-1 record.

The Silsbee Tigers are also tied for first place in district, but the Bears have the advantage after beating the Tigers 58-38 earlier in the season.

Without a doubt, Hurricane Harvey has been quite the obstacle for the Bears to overcome this season. Practicing and playing around the new school schedule has also been a challenge. 

“Despite our setbacks, our goal as a team is first to win the district championship and then get into the state playoffs,” football coach Dwight Bickham said.

After the big win against Cleveland Friday night, senior Branden Dunbar said he and his team were on top of the world.  

“I felt like our team was just one more step closer to reaching our goal to become district champs,” Dunbar said. 

According to Bickham, some of the players that have stepped up and led the team this season are J’Lon Douglas, Truman Franklin, Chris Winters and Landon Alford. However, it takes the entire team to achieve victory and that is just what the Bears have done so far.

“We are extremely proud of our kids and the way they have fought through adversity and stuck together and put themselves in position to win the district championship,” Bickham said. 

Even though the players and coaches have their eyes on the prize right now, Dunbar said playing football is more than just getting wins and advancing to playoffs.

“The best part about playing with my brothers is the fact that we are creating memories and strengthening a bond that will always be remembered,” Dunbar said.

The Bears will kick off against Navasota at 7 p.m. this Friday at Battlin’ Bear Stadium. Senior Night festivities will also take place prior to kick off.
