Taylor, Carter salute BHS’s staunch effort despite playoff setback

Bearden’s Bulldogs went out growling in 2009 with a special defensive effort.

“I think our whole defense played outstanding,” BHS head coach Brad Taylor said after his team’s 10-3 loss at Farragut in TSSAA Class 6A second-round playoff action Friday, Nov. 13. Bearden ends the season 9-3.

“I think our seniors were tremendous leaders tonight, all across the board.” Taylor added. “I think we had a good plan, the best plan we could have for it. Our kids just fought, battled.”

Cisco Carter, BHS senior defensive back, said one key to holding Farragut to 10 points was “getting pressure on their quarterback, Reese [Browning], he’s a good passer. We wanted to shut down their run with linebackers and man up on their wide receivers.

“It was a good year. We all came together at the beginning of the year and made sure to say, ‘be family,’” Carter added. “I can honestly say that we’ve come together to be a good family. We’re always there for each other.

“We’ve had a lot of injuries in the senior class, and we’re always the first ones there at their house with gifts and stuff.”

About senior Davis Tull, standout defensive end/wide receiver who broke his leg earlier this season, Carter said, “Sure enough, 12 of our players were there. Four of us stayed overnight. The next day we had our whole football [team] there.”
