Northwest Bearcats

Press Release


Nov. 25, 2013

A letter from head football coach Adam Dorrel

To the Best Fans in the Nation:

Standing on the sidelines at Missouri Western last Saturday, there were a couple moments during the game where I had to remind myself that we were the road team. We’ve had some great fan turnouts throughout the years, both at Bearcat Stadium and on the road, but I can only remember a handful of times where we got so loud that it forced the home team to have a false start penalty. It played a huge role in us winning our program’s 25th MIAA title and it is one of the things that makes playing or coaching at Northwest so special.

Your support both at home and on the road means so much to our student-athletes and our coaching staff. Seeing a packed house at Bearcat Stadium at any point is an amazing experience, but the playoffs bring an entirely new level of intensity. I can’t really describe it but ask anyone who has been to a Northwest playoff game and they will all tell you the same thing. There’s something special about Maryville.

I look forward to seeing everyone here on November 30 as we take on Minnesota Duluth at noon.

From my family, our coaching staff and our entire team, please travel safe and have a wonderful holiday.
