Crane, a Mena Middle School geography teacher, fought a long and courageous battle with cancer which took his life earlier this year. He will be posthumously recognized as the honorary Bearcat Captain on Friday night prior to kick off.
Mr. Crane was a graduate of the Mena High School class of 1987 and was an all-conference football player his senior year. He was always noted for his fierce competitiveness. His friends, classmates, and colleagues will stand in his honor at the ceremony which will begin at approximately 6:30.
