Hall is second in Region 1AAAA in passing. He has completed 77 of 142 passes for 706 yards with five touchdowns and has averaged 141.2 yards passing a game.

The leading ball carrier for the Bears is Ron Brown, who is sixth among Region 1AAAA rushers with 54 carries for 284 yards, a 5.3 yards per carry average and three touchdowns.

The Bears feature the fifth and sixth top receivers in Region 1AAAA. Travis Hunter is fifth with 21 catches for 179 yards, and an 8.5 yards per reception average.

The Bears’ other good receiver is Taylor Ring, who has 18 catches for 215 yards, an 11.9 yards per reception average and one touchdown.

Bearcats head coach Ed Pilcher says the Bears operate out of a spread offense and throw more that they run. They use an eight-man front defensively.

They are led defensively by Matt Stagg and Aubrey Mack, who are tied for fifth in tackles in Region 1AAAA with 43 each.

Stagg has 20 solo tackles, 23 assisted tackles and four tackles for loss and Mack has 29 solo tackles, 14 assisted tackles and two tackles for loss.
