NOSES SLANTED BACKWARDS
The Bulldogs of Kearney Missouri were nothing short of legendary this season. Each member of the 97 man squad played their part and truely showed what it means to be a Bulldog. Coach Jones often says, "A Bulldog is a unique animal its nose is slanted backwards, so it can bite and breath at the same time." Thus, the Bulldog never gets tired in a fight. In the 2015 Season these Bulldogs never tired; they battled injuries, outstanding opponents, family loss, referees, and in the end came out of an epic 17-14 battle with the Webb City Cardinals to be crowned Missouri Class 4A State Champions.
As a team these boys accomplished the highest accolade in the land and with the motto of "Get In!" they played as a team all year long. As the season has come to a close and coaches are checking equipment, finalizing statitistics, and preparing for the All State meeting the individual accolades are starting to role in for the Bulldogs as well.
