Full Interview with Fairview Head Football Coach Robert Bernard

Fairview Yellow Jackets 2022 Record: 15-0

Key Returners: Jax Bernard, Reed Martens, Isaiah Burris, Boden Miller, Brant Strader

Key Losses: Austin Houk, Kaden Pettus, Blake Perez

District A-1: Hooker, Thomas Faye-Custer, Merritt Burns Flat-Dill City, Sayre, Merritt, Texhoma 

The Fairview Yellowjackets are coming off a perfect season and Class A State Championship victories. Despite losing their running back Blake Perez and key members of the defense Austin Houk and Kaden Pettus, the Yellow Jackets are still loaded. With duel-threat QB Jax Bernard returning with nearly all of his top targets returning this team will be ready for another run at the Class A State Championship Game.

Now that Perez has graduated Bernard may need to show off what he can do in the run game more often, but shouldn’t be any problem for the Junior. The real test for the Yellow Jackets will be their road game against fellow contender Hooker.
