What does being a Kearney Bulldog mean to you?

      Being a Bulldog means that you work as hard as you can to become the best player and person you can. On the field or court KMO is known for giving it our all every time we play and representing our school and community in the best possible way. We are so lucky to be apart of a community that supports our athletes and school with so much pride. 

The saying is true Once a BULLDOG Always a BULLDOG.


Who is your favorite bulldog football player of all time?  WHY?

Kearney has had lots of great players play here, but one of my all time favorites is Jake Gassman. He was one of the hardest working kids I have ever seen and had the pleasure of coaching. On the football field he was a beast.

If Coach Gray would let you call one play on Friday night, what play would you call?

The fly route Acosta to Stevens and let Stevens outrun people for a TD.


What does the honor of being selected Teacher of the Week mean to you?

The honor of teacher of the week is awesome that the players of the football program think of you a positive influence in their lives. Keep up the hard work and good luck the rest of the season.
