Dear athletes, parents/guardians, and community members:

It is my privilege to serve as the head football coach for Basha High School.  I look forward to being another member of this great school and community.  Basha High School excels across the board in many endeavors and my job is to make the football program another positive asset for the school.  My program’s motto is “Engineering Champions Forever” in which we will create a platform for young members of the team to learn championship skills both on and off the field that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.  We expect our student-athletes who successfully complete our program to have the utmost capability to make a positive impact in our society and the lives of everyone they meet.  This philosophy will act as the basis for our program.

Another main goal for the program is to create a strong bond and/or extended family within the program. It is our belief that creating this is more difficult than teaching football or developing specific skills.  The hard part is teaching kids how to cooperate with other people or to make young men/women understand that they need to be “self-less” in order for a team to thrive.  Our focus is on the commitment to a team and program. I want players to understand what it means to sacrifice for a team and achieve team-related goals.  I am committed to this approach because I truly feel this is how you build a “championship culture.”  Again, I look forward to working for Basha High School and creating a positive experience for all current and future Basha Bears!!

Well, this last week of football for the Basha Football program brought about blowouts, no matter which game you observed or was interested in. For the most part, the same happens from earlier in the season were found to be the case against Hamilton.

The Varsity Bears were run over by the Huskies and couldn’t find a break so change the momentum of the game whatsoever. The Huskies scored early and often, in route to a 55-0 victory over the Bears. The Bears are now 2-7 heading into the bye week.

Our JV Bears however, did keep up their winning ways by blowing out the Hamilton Huskies at home 54-14. Per the coaching staff, this was only the second time that a Bear football team (at any level) had beaten the Huskies. Congratulations to the JV team on that stat and the big win. The JV Bears are now 8-1 moving into the bye week.

Like the Varsity Bears, the Freshman Bears suffered a similar loss 50-0. The team is trying hard, but just not able to create much success. The Freshman team moved to 2-6 on the season heading into the bye week.

The Basha Bears football program has a bye week this upcoming week of the season. The Bears next action will be against the Perry Pumas the last week of the season, the schedule then will be as follows;

10/25/2017; @ 6pm- Freshman, Basha at Perry

10/26/2017; @ 6pm- Junior Varsity, Perry at Basha

10/27/2017; @ 7pm- Varsity, Basha at Perry

The first week of fall break seem to provide some needed relief to the Basha Football Program. This week brought about play against Brophy Broncos and Senior Night for the Varsity team. Thank you to ALL of the 2018 Seniors, you have provided some magnificent memories and highlights for this program. We all hope that the next chapter of your lives are great to you and your families.

This Varsity was able to flip what had been happening to them in the past weeks and do that too Brophy. The Bears jumped on the Broncos early and kept the pressure on all evening. The Bears played a very good game and beat the Broncos 47-13, sending the Seniors out on high note at home. The Bears improved their record to 2-6 on the season.

Like the Varsity, the Junior Varsity Bears held the JV Broncos to just 13 points at Brophy Sports Complex. The JV Bears were not without mistakes, they committed a couple of early ones that Brophy was not able to take control of the game. However, when Brophy committed like mistakes, the JV Bears jumped on them and seemingly took control of the game, winning 30-13. With another victory in the win column, the JV Bears are now 6-1, with the last two games at home.

The Freshman Bears were run over quickly on Wednesday night, as the Freshman Broncos ran rough shot over them. The Freshman Bears lost 36-13. The Bears record is now 2-5.

The Basha Bears football program will be playing the Hamilton Huskies next week, the schedule is as follows;

10/11/2017; @ 6pm- Freshman, Basha at Hamilton

10/12/2017; @ 6pm- Junior Varsity, Hamilton at Basha

10/13/2017; @ 7pm- Varsity, Basha at Hamilton

Basha Gridiron Club – GO BEARS!!!

The week 7 highlights marked several aspects to the calendar for the Basha Bear Program.  First and foremost, the beginning of league play and the Chandler Wolves were on the schedule.  Second, the conclusion to the first quarter of the school year and fall break beginning.  Third, probably what most of us do not want to hear and that is that we are quickly nearing the end of the high school football season.

The Varsity Bears hosted the Wolves in a Thursday night game due to the Friday evening observance of Yom Kipper.  The Wolves took control in the first half and never let go.  The beginning of league play for the Bears ended in a 58-21 loss at John Wall Stadium.  Unfortunately for the Bears, it marked their sixth straight consecutive loss on the year putting them 1-6.   However, through this losing streak, they are not giving up on any game and are continuing to fight to the final whistle.

The JV Bears played Wednesday evening at Chandler High School.  The Bears tried hard but were unable to get the breaks to go their way before losing 35-7.   For the JV Bears, this was their first loss of the season and I’m sure a tough one to swallow considering their success this season.   The JV Bears are no longer undefeated and fall to 5-1 on the season.

The Freshman Bears ran into a buzz saw Wednesday evening at home.  The Wolves came out strong and put it on the Bears beating them 56-0.   The Bears tried hard but were just no match for the Chandler Wolves Freshman team.  The loss by the Freshman Bears brings their record to 2-4. 

The Basha Bears football program will be playing the Brophy Broncos next week, the schedule is as follows;

10/4/2017; @ 6pm- Freshman, Brophy at Basha
10/5/2017; @ 6pm- Junior Varsity, Basha at Brophy (at Brophy Sports Complex, 4800 N. 7th Street, Phoenix AZ, 85014)
10/6/2017; @ 7pm- Varsity, Brophy at Basha (Senior Night)
