Appearing on the Jesus and Jammin’ morning radio show on our Flint Media stations Thursday morning, Coach Littleton accepted a check for $350 from First National Bank to go to the Bearcat Touchdown Club, which supports the football team with meals and travel. The $350 represents the seven touchdowns the Bearcats scored last week against Americus-Sumter, and is one of several ways First National Bank supports Bainbridge High School and its football team.
