Games attract 1000+ football fans

Over a thousand people packed Memorial Stadium on Friday, May 18 to watch the BCHS Wildcats in their first scrimmage. They also turned out for the BCMS Bobcat scrimmage and the Powder Puff football game won by the senior girls.

Coach Ryan Sulkowski was impressed. “If that doesn’t show you how ‘football crazy’ this place is, then I don’t know what would,” said Sulkowski.

The middle school kicked off on May 18 and Sulkowski was impressed with what he saw from the young Bobcats.

“They took some major strides in their development of grasping our offense and defense. There are so many kids to get excited about at the middle school level that our varsity staff cannot stop talking about where we should be in a couple of years.”
