2024 HoCo Football continues to make improvements as they prep for the upcoming season

The Houston County Bears’ football team held their annual Bear Hunt at Freedom Field earlier this evening and they are continuing to make improvements as they get ready for the summer and then, the main event which begins in August. The team lost a good number of skill players from last season’s team on offense but this season’s team looks to be pretty competitive but for now, they are in the early stages.

Last season started strong for the Black, Silver, and White up until the Lee Co game at Freedom Field back on September 29th, a game that got away from the Bears in the fourth quarter with two costly mistakes inside the opponent’s 25 yd-line to ultimately fall 44-35 and that loss was a devastating blow as HoCo was not the same team at times as they would notably get shutout to TCC and only beat Tift by 12 when they beat them by 59 in 2022.

HoCo would fall at Woodward in the Sweet Sixteen. This season, the Black, Silver, and White will return QB AJ Hill for his senior season and they have a very tough schedule to play most notably in region play as the new region 2-AAAAA has the potential to be one of the toughest regions in the nation as it will feature two state champions in Thomas Co Central and Coffee who both had potent defenses.

Then there is Lee Co who has possibly the best RB in the state in Ousmane Kromah who is an absolute nightmare to bring to the ground and then you have county rivals Northside and Veterans who are poised and hungry like the Bears are.
