HOUSTON – David Raffield didn't know when it would happen.

When Bridgeland football would be a force to be reckoned with. When the Bears could contend for a playoff spot. When the program that has its first senior class in 2019 could be in the conversation for a district crown.

Apparently, 2019 was the year.

Bridgeland has stormed out of the gates to a 4-0 record overall – setting a new program record for wins in a season after going 3-7 a year ago – and on top of that 2-0 in District 14-6A.

"It's been one of those things, yes we thought we could get here," Raffield said. "When? We didn't set a timetable. We said we are taking no shortcuts and just going to work hard. We're really seeing the kids grow and develop at a very rapid rate in the last few months. It's exciting."

The most recent of those two wins in district play is one that Raffield would consider a program-defining victory.Beating reigning District 14-6A Champion Cypress Ranch 48-14 on Saturday.

"It's definitely a huge program win," Raffield said. "For three years this group of kids has been working to get to this point. This group of seniors, for them to go out and defeat the district champs and send notice that we're a team to be reckoned with is huge for the longevity of this program."

The success of the Bridgeland Bears has sent the community into a frenzy.
