In 2013, the Summerville Bears football program was planning for the future. 11 sophomores were brought up to play varsity, and all of them saw significant playing time. They won two games.
In 2014, those 11 players helped lead the Bears to the first round of the Division V Sac-Joaquin Section Championships. Now, those 11 players are seniors and look to use their experience to bring the Mother Lode League Championship back to Tuolumne for the first time since 2009.
