The Sherman Bearcats are picking it up at just the right time.
The Cats are 2-2 heading into this weeks marquee matchup with Denison, and are 1-0 after a big district opening win over the McKinney North Bulldogs.
"It was extremely important, it gets us rolling," said lineman Christian Hunt.
They were paced by running back Tre Mask's seven scores in that one, and after suffering offensively early in the season, head coach Gary Kinne thinks they may have turned a corner.
"i think we're definitely headed in the right direction," said Kinne.
If the Bearcats are clicking on all cylinders, we may see them hoist the Axe for the 4th consecutive year Friday night.
