After a season ruining injury for his junior season, Blake Green is back to handle kicking for the Bearcats. Blake has been a part of the Bearcat football team since his eighth grade year, playing his freshman and sophomore years before sustaining an injury that sidelined him for his junior year.

Blake’s favorite memory as a Bearcat was sending the Sandy Creek playoff game into overtime his sophomore year in the second round of the playoffs. Blake nailed the extra point to tie it up 7-7- before the Bearcats went on to win 14-7.

Blake says what he looks forward to the most out of his senior season is getting better and having a good year with his team.

Benjamin Farish Mulkey: Wide Receiver #11

Ben Mulkey has been playing football at Bainbridge High School for four years.  He currently plays the position of wide receiver. Some of his favorite memories over the past four years include playing at home in the playoffs and winning nail biter games against Sandy Creek from Tyrone, Ga. (14-7 in overtime) and St. Pius X Catholic from Atlanta, Ga. (18-17) in 2015. This year Mulkey looks most forward to being able to come together as a team and win some more of the exciting football games the town looks forward to.

Darius James Adams: Defensive End/Fullback/Linebacker #4

Darius has been a member of the Bearcat football team since his ninth grade year. Darius plays three positions and can play both offense and defense. His favorite memory as a Bearcat is the first time he got in on Friday night under the lights at Centennial Field.

For his senior season, Darius just wants to play at the highest level he can, and be the best he can be to help his team.

Markell Rodricous Broadnax: Outside Linebacker #8

Markell Broadnax has been playing football at Bainbridge High School for four years. He currently plays the positions of running back and outside line backer. One of his favorite memories from the past four years was when the team went undefeated 13-1 in 2016. This year Broadnax looks forward to going undefeated again and making it the Bearcats best season yet.
