(MENA) The Mena Bearcats football team has been tapped to do well in the upcoming 2019 season, according to one sports publication.
Hooten’s has given the Bearcats the opinion of making a deep playoff run in 2019.
The prediction may have came just as two integral parts of the coaching staff has moved on to other opportunities. Former head coach Tim Harper moved to Oklahoma, to coach a Tulsa area team and just late last week it was announced that former Offensive Line Coach Aaron Pennington will be leaving to coach at Malvern.
Mena should be in good shape for whomever the new coach will be with All-Purpose Athlete Zane Stephens and Junior Division 1 Tight End prospect Mason Brotherton.
The Bearcats will have a veteran Offensive line returning, led by Sophomore Nose Guard Logan Yang, Linebacker Jayden Castillo and on defense with Senior Safety Marc Wilson.
