Bearcats running backs coach Larry Cosby, who coached the junior varsity game with Bearcats defensive coordinator Brian Hill, said he the thought the team played well both sides of the ball Thursday.

“Offensively, our line blocked well, and Lerone Broadnax and our other backs ran hard” coach Cosby said.

The junior varsity Bearcats will conclude their season next Thursday, Oct. 15, when they host Early County High School.
