‘Small Town, Big Game': 1993 ESPN Feature Spotlights The Carencro Bears Football Team

Subscribe to News Talk 96.5 KPEL on

Back in 1993, Carencro High School football was featured on ESPN for an episode of Scholastic Sports America.

Not only did the feature highlight the players, but the community and its fans were also front and center as they expressed their love for Carencro High football. Also, it seemed like our food and culture got just as much camera time as Kevin Faulk.

Speaking of Kevin, it was cool to see the early makings of a player that would go on to become a star on both the collegiate and professional level—and ultimately a Super Bowl Champion.

ESPN has also come a long way since they covered the town of Carencro; who still has love for their beloved Bears.

This will definitely be a nice little blast from the past for anyone who has sat under the lights of the “Cro-Dome.”
