Little Big Game Coming Soon

The Varsity Football team will play against Burlingame in the most important game of the season on November 12th at 11 o’clock. The game will be played at San Mateo High School, giving us the home-team advantage.

This game is important because we have had a rivalry against Burlingame since 1927, and we even have a special award that goes to the winning team called the “Paw”. Even though the Paw remains with the Panthers, our Bearcat football players will do their best to get the Paw back to its rightful home.

The rivalry games between Stanford and UC Berkeley is called the Big Game, inspiring SMHS to call our homecoming game with BHS the “Little” Big Game. SMHS has had 83 homecoming games with Burlingame. It has almost been a whole year since the last Little Big Game, and all the players are eager to take on BHS again and win back the paw.

At SMHS, our homecoming dance, Grid, pumps the football team up for the game the week after. The team players would pick their date to Grid, and sometimes in extraordinary ways.

Alex Strathearn is looking forward to playing the final game of the season and win. As tight end, he can contribute to his hard-working team, “I can make tackles on the defense, and catch the ball”.

One of the defensive backs, D’armon Collins, really believes in his team, “the defense will stop offense because the defense team is strong; I expect my team to try and keep BHS under 14 points”.

Trevor Brill, quarterback, says, “I am really looking forward to the big crowds in the stands, and us playing our rivals”. Even though this year’s score hasn’t been in the best shape, everyone on the team wants to try their hardest, and to win the paw.

“I plan for a victory this year because our team has been practicing hard every day since last winter”, Andrew Ho, wide receiver #3, explained, “I expect my team to not give up and play hard in the Little Big Game, even if we have a low score at first.”

The Bearcat football team not only has to practice hard for the games, but they also have to try hard to maintain their grades high, and study hard for tests. As the Paw being the ultimate reward for our Bearcats, the team will continue to work hard every day.
