You are reading The Community News’ ninth State Championship Magazine, and our first online State Championship Magazine! This is a commemorative publication celebrating the Aledo Bearcats’ 2019 state championship season, the ninth in school history and a Texas 11-man football state record.

This publication contains a week-by-week account of all 16 games, including the state championship game, and weeks 1-15 will include a short wrap-up article, scoring summaries, and comments from the players and coaches from each contest.

There is also a full article on the Bearcats’ 45-42 victory over Fort Bend Marshall in the Class 5A, Division II state championship game.

I have published a column where I sat down with head coach Tim Buchanan to discuss this past title and the eight before it — all under his watch — and he has some very interesting takes on how and why the Bearcats dynasty is where it is today.

There will also be feature articles on the senior class, offensive line, and the defense, along with other sidebar articles and plenty of photographs by Cynthia Llewellyn. 

We hope you enjoy this as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
