Bears Open 2021 Football Season
Last week, the Butler County High School Bears traveled to Class A power Russellville and fell in the season opener 45-0. The Bears' low numbers of available players made for a challenging week both at practice and game night. The Bears offensively were shut down and never really got
untracked. The Bears were limited to only thirty-three offensive snaps on the night. On average, the norm is usually fifty offensive snaps on game night.
Quarterback Jagger Henderson on the night completed three passes in fifteen attempts for thirteen yards with one interception. Rushing the Bears were led by Colten Dunnells, six carries totaling seventeen yards.
Defensively the Bears were led by linebacker Josh Morris, seven tackles, and four assists. Dillion Hudnall had five tackles and four assists.
In week two, the Bears game plan has hit bumps as the Edmonson Co. Wildcats notified BCHS school officials it had to cancel due to Covid-19 issues as of late Wednesday night, August 25. The game was scheduled to be a HOME game for the Bears this Friday, August 27, and a 7 pm kickoff.
The Bears were able to find an opponent at the last minute - Louisville Waggener. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. The game will be live on WLBQ 101.5 FM with Nick Haught and Barry Frazier.
