A message from our Athletic Director

The Bonham Students and Community as Servant Leaders

Servant leadership is a philosophy and a set of practices that enrich the lives of individuals, build better organizations and ultimately create a more just and caring world. There are many servant leaders in our community. To be a servant leader there are several traits that one must possess:

Be True to Yourself
A leader is a person who others naturally gravitate to and through this connection, improve the leadership and productivity of others towards completing the organization's goals.

Put People over Processes
No organization will be successful until the leader surrounds the organization with talented and committed employees.

Have a Plan
Once others believe in your convictions and commitment to the organization they need to know you have a plan

Communicate and then Communicate Again
Communication is the key to getting all the moving parts working in synchronized fashion.

The role of a leader can take on a life of its own and should be prescriptive and not descriptive.

The beginning of this 2018-2019 school year has given us many examples of servant leadership not only from the administrators and coaches within our school district. But more importantly from the students and community who have shown great examples of servant leadership. Our students and community have taken the traits above along with the examples of servant leadership shown by our administration, faculty, staff, and has begun to help each other. From the beginning of another great school year with all of the flexibility needed to move into a new building to the challenges that have been put before our students and their families. The school district and community of Bonham work together as servant leaders!!

Warriors move to 4-1 overall and 1-0 in District

By Allen Rich

The Bonham Warriors improve to 4-1 on the year and 1-0 in district 5-3A after another explosive performance that resulted in a 49-26 win over the Howe Bulldogs.

There were plenty of superlatives to pass around.

Bonham senior quarterback Tyler Rodriguez threw five touchdown passes. Noah Shellman snagged three of those scoring strikes and also electrified the crowd with a 70-yard kickoff return for another TD. Jerrell Stewart and Nick Rhinehart each had touchdown receptions. The defense got in on the fun, too, when linebacker Ryan Robinson scooped up a fumble and raced 25 yards to pay dirt.

But it was the defense that got this all started. Howe took the opening kickoff and methodically drove 60 yards to the Warrior one-foot line. However, on fourth-and-goal from the one-foot line, the Bulldogs ran right at 6'6", 350-pound Chris Wilson and the middle of a Warrior defense that refused to budge.

The only score in the first quarter would come on a 26-yard touchdown pass from Rodriguez to Shellman. Rhinehart booted the first of his seven PATs on the night and Bonham was up, 7-0.

Howe got on the scoreboard early in the second period when Howe quarterback Layton Elvington froze the Bonham defense with play action and then found Arturo Lowder behind the Warrior secondary for a 32-yard TD pass. Elvington went back to Lowder on a successful two-point conversion that gave Howe an 8-7 lead.

Twenty seconds later Rodriguez hit Stewart for a 30-yard touchdown pass.

Elvington scored on a 10-yard keeper to tie the game, 14-14, when the two-point conversion failed.

Rodriguez lofted a screen pass to Rhinehart that went for a nine-yard touchdown that put Bonham back on top, 21-14.

Howe running back Cameron Blesi earned his spot on the highlight reel with a 77-yard sprint down the hometown sidelines, but the PAT failed and Bonham took a 21-20 lead into the locker room at halftime.

In the third quarter, a long scramble by Rodriguez set up an 11-yard TD pass to Shellman as the Warriors stretched their advantage to 28-20.

Early in the fourth quarter, it was Rodriguez connecting with Shellman again, this time on a six-yard screen pass that went for six points as the lead ballooned to 35-20.

Elvington scored on a one-yard dive but the Shellman took the ensuing kickoff 70 yards to the house and Bonham had breathing room with a 42-26 lead.

Ryan Robinson iced the win with a 25-yard touchdown on a fumble return and Bonham put a 49-26 win in the books.

Howe will travel to Emory-Rains next Friday.

L.H. Rather Junior High Football

Indians vs. Blue Ridge

Thursday night the L.H. Rather Grey Team traveled to Blueridge and came home with a 20-6 victory! Behind an aggressive offensive line who never let up on their blocks, a number of guys got to get their hands on the ball. Jesse Kountz, Logan Thomas, and Jacob Gorden all had long runs for positive yardage and helped set the Indian offense up to score. Keaton Russell was a stand out player this week. As the total yards leader, Keaton scored three touchdowns.

The offense were not the only ones to show up ready to play Thursday night, The defense made a statement causing 4 turnovers to hold Blueridge to 6 points. Blueridge mad one long drive to start the game to put the first points on the scoreboard and the Indians shut them out for the rest of the game. Up front, on the defensive line, Bradley Carruth-Vega stood out for his ability to get into the backfield to make a few tackles for a loss including a sack fumble and recovery! Two other defensive players who really impressed the coaches were Osman Artega and Adolfo Ruiz who really showed an ability to find the ball carrier and bring him down with authority.

If Thursday night was any indicator of how much success our Grey Team may be, then it will be a fun season for us here at L.H. Rather.

The LH Rather White team had a great beginning of the season with an 18-0 win over Leonard. The offense put 12 points on the board while the defense put up 6 with a “scoop and score” by Payton Hayes. The offense was led by Alex Helms at quarterback and Austyn Herrington at running back. The offensive line, led by Braden Benson and Anthony Fields, did their job of opening holes for Herrington and Helms. The defense was outstanding while giving up zero points on their first outing. The defensive line did an awesome job allowing the linebacker crew, led by Hunter Hagland, to stop nearly every play. It was truly a team effort and show the work these boys put in at practice paid off.

The LH Rather Purple team had a struggle on their hands for the season opener. At half time, the score was 12-12. Coming out half time with a new energy, the new Warrior Offensive system took hold. Quarterback Jaren Ross was able to escape for two long runs and deliver a knockout touchdown pass to Fernando Delgado. The defense also did its job in the second half by only allowing one touchdown. With the defensive line anchored by Isaiah “Kool-Aid” Reynolds and Linebackers (led by Jackson Abbott and Canaan Farley), the Leonard Tigers couldn’t keep up with our high scoring offense as the LH Rather Indians win 30-18.

Indians vs. Howe

8th Grade Purple team won 34-22.

In the first quarter Jaron Ross scored early on a 30 yard run. 2 pt. conversion was good with Canaan Farley running up the middle. Howe scored in the second quarter on a pass. But the Indians quickly responded with Ross scoring again on long outside run. The Indians led at the half 14-8. The third quarter belonged to the Indians once again. With much attention being paid to the Quarterback Ross, Canaan Farley benefitted getting most of the carries and scoring twice in the quarter. In the fourth quarter, Jackson Abbott got 45 yards on three carried. Abbott was very versatile playing 3 positions on offense. The Purple Indian Defense was outstanding. They flew to the ball carriers very fast and played aggressive. Cameron Bush, Elijah Reynolds, Farley, Abbott, and Ross had multiple tackles creating chaos for the Bulldogs. Overall, the Indians played very well.

The LH Rather Indians Had a great night on Thursday night and it began with the Grey Teams 28-0 victory over Howe. The boys really came out ready to play and set the tone with a first play forced fumble to put Bonham in scoring position. The offensive line was doing a great job up front and which gave players like Keaton Russell and Jacob Gorden great opportunities to put the ball in the end-zone! This victory for the Indians was truly a team effort. Defensively the boys fought hard and kept putting the fast scoring offense in a position to add to the lead. The complete buy in to the program and desire to be great at their position is apparent, and their coaches are so proud of how they are representing our program. Great win Grey Team!!

The LH Rather White Team had a rough time with Howe Bulldogs losing 28-0. The offense had several good plays led by running back Austyn Harrington and receiver Hunter Hagland.

The defense didn't fair much better. Angel Esquivel was a standout that made several tackles and even prevented a touchdown on special teams. With the bye-week coming up, there will be extra time for improvement on our next game against Emory-Rains.

Lady Warriors move to 2-0 in District

by Allen Rich

Volleyball fans got their money's worth Friday when the Bonham Lady Warriors and the Leonard Lady Tigers battled for five sets before Bonham prevailed in the tiebreaker.

Leonard took the opener, 25-21, but Bonham responded with a 25-19 victory in the second set.

Leonard controlled the action to post a 25-14 win in the third set, however it was all Bonham in the fourth set as the Lady Warriors rolled to a 25-11 victory to even the match at 2-2 and send the teams back out onto the court for the tiebreaker.

When Leonard pulled in front, 4-2, Bonham called time out in hopes of regrouping before this important district match slipped away. The strategy worked when Bonham junior Averi Reeves knocked down three kills as Bonham took a 6-4 lead. A tough serve by Emma Bounds stretched the Lady Warriors' advantage to 7-4. Reeves and Raegan Shackelford put down kills to help Bonham put a 15-9 win in the books.
