It’s the first time Bainbridge has started its football season 4-0 since 2009, according to the Georgia High School Football Historian’s Association. The 2004 Bearcats also started 4-0, and the 2011 Bearcats started the season 3-0 and finished 8-3. The 1986 Bearcats started 7-0 before its first loss.
With the win, Bainbridge jumped up from No. 7 to No. 6 on the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s list of the top 10 teams in Class AAAA. Going into Friday night’s game, Bearcats were at No. 9 on the Georgia Sportswriters’ Association Top 10 poll for Class AAAA.
The sportswriters’ poll will be updated later this week–you can hear both polls in their entirety by listening to the Countdown to Kickoff high school football show with Tommy Palmer, aired on all of our Flint Media stations at 6 p.m. on Friday nights.
This Friday, Bainbridge will host Crisp County, which is 1-3 so far on the season, at Centennial Field in Bainbridge. BHS Coach Jeff Littleton will be a special guest on the Jesus and Jammin’ morning radio show on Thursday morning to discuss the TCC game and look forward to the Crisp County game. You can hear Jesus and Jammin’ every weekday morning from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. on all of our Flint Media stations, or stream the show live on sowegalive.com
