Baker 2012 football team leaves foundation for future

Published: Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 11:01 AM.

Baker’s first loss of the season came in week three, when a ranked Holmes County team visited Doug Griffith Memorial Stadium, flexing its muscles. The Blue Devils beat the Gators 54-14 in what became Baker’s worst loss of the season.

Baker had another setback against Holmes County when Adam Crowson received a concussion that sidelined him for Baker’s week-four game against West Gadsden.

With both Adam and Ben Crowson sidelined, Brunson called on sophomore quarterback Jon Beck to make his first varsity start at West Gadsden.

Beck was up to the task of leading the Gator offense as Baker pounded out a 35-3 win over the Panthers.

The win over West Gadsden was followed by a loss at Bozeman, and Baker was 3-2 entering district play as the Gators hosted Freeport.

For the second straight year, the Gators and Bulldogs battled tooth and nail. For the second straight year, Freeport took a close — 41-34 — win.

The Gators stepped out of district play in week seven to host Sneads for Homecoming 2012. There was plenty to celebrate, as Baker beat the Pirates 28-14.
