Aledo ISD School News
Aledo BearcatsIt was really no surprise that the Class 4A No.1 Aledo Bearcats defeated Azle, 73-0, in a District 5-4A contest Friday night at Azle.
Aledo all-state running back Johnathan Gray had his usual productive game with 183 yards on 19 carries and four touchdowns, and a Bearcats' 40-0 lead at the half also did not raise eyebrows.
But the Bearcat offense did show another side that may give future opposing defensive coordinators some sleepless nights as junior quarterback Matt Bishop connected on long touchdown passes of 45, 58, 40 and 39 yards, the latter to new varsity receiver Willie Gibson, a sophomore who was called up to varsity this week.
