Don’t tell La Cueva head football coach, Brandon Back, that his team has a repeat 6A football championship on its mind.
“We’re not defending anything. This is a new team with a new personality and a new frame of reference,” Back said. “We haven’t talked about anything that happened last year. Last year was a great story, but that’s all it is right now.”
Nonetheless, the Bears’ football story is still being written after dispatching Eldorado, 41-27, at Wilson Stadium on Friday night.
The Bears’ Austin Smith threw for 334 yards and four touchdowns, and receiver Brad Thomas hauled in three of Smith’s TD tosses and had 238 yards receiving on eight catches in the first-round playoff game.
