Bears to battle Texans this Friday

 

The wait is finally over! After many months without football, the high school season in Texas is set to kick off this week, and the La Vernia Bears will be at home against the Wimberley Texans.

Last year, the two teams met in Wimberley, and the Bears dished out a dominating 28-0 victory. This year, the Texans will undoubtedly be looking for some payback, but it won’t be an easy feat.

By now, everyone likely knows that the Bears have a new Head Coach. Brandon Layne has taken over, and brings his title-winning ways to La Vernia. The offensive coordinator turned head coach brought Coach Joe Volentine along with him to the Bears, and they are looking to change the offensive for the better. Layne said the Bears will operate out of a multiple formation pro-style offense this season. Running back Matthew Montgomery will be in the backfield, and is the reigning District 15-4A DI MVP. Wide receiver Noah Wells is also expected to be an impact player for the offense.

On the defensive side of things, Coach Chris Taylor will call the shots for the Bears. Linebacker Koby Bullard will anchor the defense, and is sure to have a huge senior season. The Bears are picked to win their district, and should make a good run through the playoffs, but they can’t look too far down the road just yet.

On the other side of the ball this Friday will be a good team that went 8-4 last season. The Texans return a number of varsity lettermen, and have 10 starters back, with four on offense and six on defense -- including a trio of all-district linebackers. Wimberley also has an experienced offensive line returning, but will have many new faces in skill positions.

The smart money is definitely on the Bears, but given the great rivalry between these two schools, Wimberley isn’t likely to just roll over for the home team. Kick-off is set for 7:30 p.m. at Bear Stadium.
