The Bland County Bears will not play varsity football in 2019, according to assistant athletic director Kevin Pauley.
The program was forced to cancel the season due to low numbers on the varsity roster. The Bears finished last season with a record of 2-8, picking up wins over Craig County and Northwood.
This decision comes just a few weeks after the county was forced to cancel the youth football season.
Pauley confirmed that the Bland County middle school football season will be played as scheduled.
