    Building a Champion

    Willie Fritz is an optimist. When his first preseason camp as Sam Houston head football coach opened in August, 2010, Fritz handed each player a T-shirt with “OPPORTUNITYISNOWHERE” emblazoned across the front.

    It Only Gets Tougher From Here

    The further along in the playoffs they get and the smaller the number becomes of teams remaining alive, the Bearkats know that it won’t get any easier.
