The signs of high school football were in the air this morning at Bearcat Stadium.

The defending Class 5A, Division II state-champion Aledo Bearcats finished the first of 18 spring practices this morning at Bearcat Stadium.

With the customary music being played over the public address system, whistles blowing, coaches yelling instruction and quarterbacks barking signals, the Bearcats began their title defense under head coach Tim Buchanan, who has returned to the Bearcats’ sidelines.

Aledo will practice two more times this week – from 7:15-9 a.m. on Wednesday and Thursday.

For a complete spring practice schedule and for a preview of spring football see the April 26 issue of The Community News.
