Summary: This is Coach Vicars’ 6th coaching stop in his long and successful coaching career. He has also coached at Delta, Genoa, Swanton, Ada, and Hilltop. He was a longtime teacher and school administrator. Now he's fully retired except for coaching Bedford's football team. Bedford begins the season with four straight home games. Christian Brown ran for 1,400 yards last season when the team used an option offense. Vicars says this year’s team will be more of a "mobile offensive unit" because the offensive line isn't as big. Three tailbacks will be on the field in various offensive sets. They’ll run less with their QB and throw a bit more than what Bedford has done in the past.
