Bearcats taking 5A Division I playoff route; will face Fort Worth Trimble Tech Thursday

November 12, 2014 by Tony Eierdam

Just moments after the Aledo Bearcats defeated Cleburne last Friday in the District 8-5A finale, head coach Steve Wood issued a message to his troops as they gathered on the grass field for a post-game pow wow.

“Burleson just defeated Everman,” he told his team, “which means we are going Division I in the playoffs. That means you can be the first Aledo football team to win a Division I state championship.”

The positive message was well received by the Bearcats, who hooted and hollered after learning the direction they would be headed in Class 5A postseason play.
