The Battle for the Paw

 

img_7128The Varsity Football team will play against Burlingame in the most important game of the season on November 5. The game will be played at Burlingame, so the Panthers will have the home field advantage.

This year, the Bearcats hope to take back the Paw in the 89th annual Little Big Game and end the six year winning streak of Burlingame. After losing last year, our team is determined to win as they are currently first in the league.

According to senior Zain Barrios, “the team has been working very hard and put in a lot of work everyday preparing for the big game“. Leo Vieira, a junior, believes they “will bring the paw home and end the losing streak” as he watches from the sideline, out for the season with an ACL injury.

Along with practicing hard to prepare for the game, the players must maintain high grades to stay eligible to play. As they all want to win the Paw, the Bearcats must continue to work very hard all the way through the season.

The “Little Big Game” name originates from the rivalry between Stanford and UC Berkeley, which is called the The Big Game, thus inspiring our rivalry game. Before becoming Burlingame High school, they were known as “San Mateo High School Burlingame Branch”. This inspired the rivalry as they dropped the San Mateo Branch portion of their name.

The Little Big Game isn’t just about football, it’s also about the spirit that San Mateo High brings to the game, along with performances by the Dance Team, the Cheerleaders, the Band and many more. Come out to the Game on November 5th to support the Bearcats and fill the Burlingame stands with orange and black.
