COLUMBIA, SC - The Brookland-Cayce Bearcats are coming off one of their best seasons ever. They won 12 games and went 5-0 in their region. Those 12 wins were a program record for BC. They took a 9 game win streak into the playoffs and made it to the 3A state semifinals.
This season they return key weapons like quarterback Reed Charpia and Dominique Perry who will play DB and receiver in his senior season.
Head Coach Rusty Charpia is hoping that last year's success can become the norm for the Bearcats.
"Each year is a new year. It was a special year but we're hoping that maybe for a couple years in a row we can have that type of year. Yes we are pleased with last year at the same time no one cares what you did last year it's a new season," Charpia said.
"The number one concern is depth and trying to get some of the new kids; the freshmen and sophomores ready to play. So we got a chance-just don't have a lot of depth. So if we can stay away from injuries it could be a special year," Charpia said.
Brookland Cayce will take on Lake Marion at Lake Marion for their season opener on Friday night August 18.
