Nothing came easy for Shelbyville Golden Bear football in 2018. A new coach, new system, new players all over after a strong graduating class and it was known that the program was entering a rebuilding mode. A 1-9 season was the result.
Its now second time around for Mike Clevenger as head coach as the Bears prepare for Rushville in the scrimmage this Friday and then travel to Greensburg next week for the season opener. He admits last year was difficult enough. Then, the injuries began.
Even the Bears lone win proved costly. A game-winning TD run by quarterback Landon Watson ended his season with a serious concussion.
The Bears head coach says competition continues for a number of positions.
Shelbyville will scrimmage Rushville Friday at 7:00 pm.
