BRONC FOOTBALL - The Sheridan Bronc football team, parents and supporters all met last night to celebrate the team's 11-1 season and State Championship during their season-ending banquet. Senior Quarterback Austin Woodward says they won a few weeks ago and the excitement and satisfaction is still fresh in his mind.
Going back to last summer and through preseason practice, all the preparation and hard work paid off. They had dozens of great moments during the title run; Woodward has his favorite -- at least for right now.
Head coach Don Julian says it was a fitting way to end a season which will go down as one of the best ever in Bronc football history.
