BAINBRIDGE, Ga. (WTXL) — The Bainbridge Bearcats are two years removed from a state title, and as team that played a lot of young guys that are now experienced seniors, those seniors want to get back to Atlanta.
We're checking in with the Bearcats for our Friday Night Overtime Camp Chat.
Bainbridge doesn't open their 2020 campaign until next week and head coach Jeff Littleton says the guys are more than ready to hit the field.
The Bearcats are young up front and look to replace four offensive linemen, but the Bearcats' leading receivers are back. They're two-deep at running back and Quayde Hawkins is back at quarterback.
Defensively is the same story, a lot of experience coming back.
The Bearcats are hoping their veteran leadership pays off at the end of the season.
"I'm really excited about the leadership of our senior class and they've been doing a good job during practice during the summer," said Littleton. "We've been beating the heat practicing in the morning, but we're still, it's been a long summer because we've normally had a game. We've usually played three games by now. They've handled it really, really good and we're really proud of our leadership stepping up and putting that aside. We're treating this as a game week and ending with a scrimmage so we have something to look forward too."
Their scrimmage is on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. Bainbridge opens against Coffee next week.
