Gator football team ready for big spring

BAKER — Matt Brunson enters his fourth spring as Baker School's football coach with high expectations.

Baker won the District 1-1A title and was undefeated in the regular season before losing in the first round of the playoffs.

"Last year, we were very fortunate to win the district, but we exited out of the playoffs a little earlier than we would like to," he said. "We've had a great off-season. This year, our goal is to get in and make a run in the playoffs."

The good news for Brunson is rising junior quarterback Jon Beck returns with a season-and-a-half of starting experience.

"Jon knows what we are trying to accomplish and knows how to manage the game," Brunson said. "We are looking for him to have a great year.

"He did a great job last year and threw for a little over 1,000 yards. He's had some great years and we are looking for two more great ones."
