Bridge Creek opens season with two wins
By Jason Kersey
Bridge Creek continues to accomplish ground-breaking goals in its football program.
The team is 2-0 for the first time in school history, after reaching the playoffs and having a winning record for the first time last year. In Week 1, the Bobcats won 32-13 over Bethel and yesterday won 42-0 over Carnegie.
“I feel like we’re actually gonna do something this year,” senior receiver Michael Aska said.
Aska is a big reason why Bridge Creek just might make some noise in Class 2A.
He scored four touchdowns Friday night against Carnegie — two rushing and two receiving. Last season, Aska rushed for 723 yards and had 519 yards receiving along with 11 total touchdowns.
So what exactly is going on down in the little Grady County town?
“All of our players have gotten more aggressive,” Aska said. “We are doing what we need to do and working 10 times harder than we used to.
When Aska moved to Bridge Creek in the sixth grade, he was a water boy for the high school football team. At that time, talk of a state championship would have been preposterous. But now….
“It’s awesome,” Aska said. “We already have people saying we’re gonna take it to state. When in your first game you win 32-12, and your second game is a 42-0 shutout, you can’t do much better than that.”
