Appearing on the Jesus and Jammin’ morning radio show on our Flint Media stations Thursday morning, Coach Littleton accepted a check for $300 from First National Bank to go to the Bearcat Touchdown Club, which supports the football team with meals and travel. The $300 represents the six touchdowns the Bearcats scored last week against Thomas County Central, and is one of several ways First National Bank supports Bainbridge High School and its football team.
