Baileyville B&B hits the field for one final season as the school will combine with Nemaha Valley after this school year.
The Falcons enjoyed plenty of recent success. They’ve played in back-to-back state championships games and claimed the 8-Man Division II title last year.
“There’s always a few wrinkles you throw in,” Baileyville B&B head coach Justin Coup said. “Depending on personnel and things that you try, and you save some of that until you get to your district games and your playoff games so you always have something in your hip pocket.”
Baileyville capped off the 2012 campaign undefeated and look for similar results this season.
“We’ve got a lot of speed and strength and we’re going to use that to the best of our abilities this season and try to see what we can do and make a deep playoff run,” Baileyville B&B senior running back/defensive back Brendon Bergman said.
Baileyville opens the season at home against Madison.
“I think the main strength for us right now is our team speed,” Coup said. “Some of the little things we need to work on is our depth and our offensive and defensive lines, but we’re getting there.”
