GAME PREVIEW: Ailing Chieftains face another major obstacle in surging Arrows

A bruised Bellefontaine football team has been staggered by four straight losses, but the Chiefs have no plans to throw in the towel.

Tecumseh has been one of the top rushing teams in the Central Buckeye Conference for years. The Arrows are at it again this fall, averaging 267 yards per game on the ground.

Bellefontaine is coming off a 41-10 defeat at the hands of Springfield Shawnee last week. While there have not been a lot of joyous moments in Chieftain camp this fall, the coaches and players are doing their best to remain upbeat.

“It has been tough,” said BHS head coach Chris Schmidt. “It is a long season and it can be a grind. When you struggle to have success, you feel that even more. But the reps you are getting in practice now are no different than the ones you were getting earlier in the season. You want to approach your reps in practice as an opportunity to get better, and for our seniors these are the last opportunities they are going to get as Chieftain football players. You want to take advantage of those moments.”
