Boys Varsity Football · Junior receiver Oros emerges as key playmaker as Bearden prepares for Farragut


Though this year’s football season did not start off as initially expected, the Bulldogs have chosen to make the most of these unusual circumstances and play every game like it’s their last.

That mentality has helped propel Bearden to two straight wins, and one player who has emerged as integral to the Bulldogs’ success is junior Griffen Oros.

After a 44-20 win over Hardin Valley on Rivalry Thursday on Oct. 1, Bearden came from behind on the road to beat Jefferson County 33-24 a week ago. Against the Patriots, Oros had 169 all-purpose yards, three touchdowns, and an interception.

After their first two wins of the season, the Bulldogs (2-5, 1-1 Region 1-6A) are eager and determined to continue this winning streak.

“Dynamically, we are a very strong team with players that aren’t afraid to take the lead, and all of us are prepared to do what it takes to win,” Oros said. 

Despite the Bulldogs’ progression, the hard work is not over yet. The Bulldogs host rival Farragut (4-3, 1-2) on Friday night at 7:30. However, the team is hungry for their next win and plans to keep this winning streak alive. 

“We’ve already proven that we are capable of being a good team, and I’m excited to see how much further we can go,” Oros said.
