Football is just around the corner, and we at BigCountryPreps.com are committed to bringing you the information you need to prepare for your favorite team’s season.
We’ll be releasing our Big Country Preps Preseason Football Preview, the most comprehensive look at the upcoming Big Country football season anywhere, on Wednesday, Aug. 17. But you won’t have to wait until then to sate your gridiron appetite.
Leading up to the first day of fall football practice on Aug. 1, we’ll be spotlighting each 11-man team in the area and posing some of the key questions they’ll face in 2022 as part of our annual “Countdown to Two-a-Days” series.
We move to Class 3A Division II with the Ballinger Bearcats. On Tuesday we will take a look at the Brady Bulldogs, followed by the Early Longhorns on Wednesday.
LAST YEAR’S RECORD
- 7-5 overall, 2-3 District 2-3A Division II
ONE KEY STAT
- Ballinger enjoyed its fourth winning season in a row last fall. That matched the same number of winning seasons the Bearcats had from 2008 to 2017.
TWO NAMES TO KNOW
- Junior RB/LB Nathan McDuffee (Had 437 yards and seven touchdowns rushing in 2021)
- Sophomore RB/LB Zach Canada (Had 66 tackles, including 37 solo, in 2021)
THREE BURNING QUESTIONS
- With just nine lettermen returning, including six offensive and five defensive starters, can the Bearcats continue their streak of winning seasons?
- What changes will Ty Lang institute in his first year as Ballinger’s coach?
- Who will emerge as the Bearcats quarterback this fall?
