VYPE 4A TOP 10 -- #8 Montgomery Bears
July 13, 2012VYPE MAGAZINE - North Houston
Head Coach: John Bolfing
2011 Overall Record – 9-3
Postseason: Lost in the Second Round
By Matt Malatesta
The Montgomery Bears have been in the Class 4A playoff mix for several years under coach John Bolfing. A new den of Bears will claw their way to a postseason appearance in 2012.
Montgomery High School is one of the most prolific Class 4A programs in the state as their volleyball, girls' golf, softball and baseball programs are state contenders every season. Golf won another title last year, while softball and baseball reached the state tourneys.
Football is also close to breaking out. While the Bear program graduated several of their playmakers, the district's largest school will reload due to their large numbers. Bolfing will rely on son Josh Bolfing to carry the torch for the Bears at quarterback. He will do a heavy dose of handing off to returners Dedrick Linton and Jimmy Dominique. Receiver Bodhi Bell is the program's top returning receiver.
On defense, Alex Markos and Trace Mock will return at linebackers and Herbert House will lay the wood from his secondary spot.
The Bears run a balanced attack, which will help the developing Bolfing. Bodhi Bell could take some snaps in emergency situations. The backfield is set, but the offensive line will be rebuilding after the loss of Braden Meador, who is now at Yale. The Bear kicking game is solid, which will come in handy in close games.
