HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: Ready to play

Brownsboro releases 2014 schedule

BROWNSBORO — Brownsboro athletic director Jason Hooker has released the 2014 football schedule and it is loaded for next season.

The Bears are now a member of District 9-4A, Division I as a result of realignment for the next two years.

Brownsboro will be in a district with the Chapel Hill Bulldogs, Henderson Lions, Carthage Bulldogs, Kilgore Bulldogs and Palestine Wildcats.

Brownsboro finished the 2013 season with a record of 2-8 and 0-5 in District 15-3A play in Hooker’s first year at the helm.

The 2014 season begins with scrimmages on the road at Mineola on Aug. 16 and then a home scrimmage against the Rains Wildcats.

The regular season begins on Aug. 29 as the Crandall Pirates — who finished 5-6 last season — come to Bear Stadium for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff.

The following week, the Bullard Panthers come to Bear Stadium. Kickoff for that game is set for 7:30 p.m.

BHS will head out on the road for the next two weeks with contest at Quinlan Ford and the Van Vandals.

The Bears will be looking to gain some revenge on the Vandals following a 40-12 loss on Oct. 25 of last year.

They will then wrap up the non-district schedule on Sept. 26 with homecoming against the Rusk Eagles.

Following a bye week, the Bears begin their toughest district schedule in recent memory.

Brownsboro will face the two state finalist from Class 3A last season in Carthage  on Oct. 24 and Kilgore on Halloween night. Both of those games are scheduled for Bear Stadium.

The contest against Kilgore will be senior night.

They will open district play on Oct. 10 with last year’s regional quarterfinalist in Chapel Hill at Bear Stadium.

Chapel Hill lost to Kilgore last year, 59-19, in the quarterfinals.

The Bears will then head out on the road against Henderson. The Lions finished the 2013 season with a record of 3-7 under coach Phil Castles.

The Bears will then wrap up the 2014 season with a road game at Palestine.
