Wood feels the parade and the activities
capture the true spirit of Aledo.
“Homecoming week is good, it’s neat, and to
me the Homecoming parade really says ‘Aledo,’” Wood said. “I was really taken
aback by the parade the first time I saw it. It is neat concerning all the
involvement by the students, and a lot of people come to the parade.
The 4-0 Bearcats are hosting the 1-3 Saginaw
Rough Riders. A lot of times coaches fear Homecoming activities will take away
focus from their team, but Bearcats head coach Steve Wood embraces Homecoming
week and all of its activities.
Good evening Bearcat Nation and welcome to
