There was a good turnout of fans at the Gause Junior High football game in Rogers on Sept. 16 to watch the Bears win 28- 26. Wayne and I didn’t get there until soon after the second half started, but what an exciting half. The team played a great game. The GJH cheerleaders did a great job leading the cheers. The team will travel to Waco on Thursday to play Texas Christian Academy.
