The Caddo Bruins finished up their season Nov. 8 with a 56-14 loss to Strother High at home.
Though the Bruins finished the season 2-8, both those wins came at home and the Nov. 8 loss was only the second of the season at home, meaning they finished at .500 when playing in Caddo. The Bruins did not have an easy season on the road , dropping all six of their road games, including a 44-0 loss on Nov. 1 to Weleetka High.
The losses meant Caddo ended the season on a three-game losing streak after getting their second win of the season Oct. 17 against Maud. The team’s Oct. 25 road game saw Wetumka win 22-8.
Sophomore Eli McKimmy led the Bruins with 78 yard rushing on 10 carries, including a 48 yard run and a touchdown.
