St. Joe Bears winning games and Spirit Awards!

It has been a banner season thus far for the St. Joseph Bears.

Two weeks ago, the Bears defeated arch-rival Lakeshore for the first time in 17 years. They are a perfect 7-0 so far this season.

Apparently winning is contangious in St. Joseph.

This week, St. Joe became the first school to ever win two Spirit Awards in one season.

The Bears receive a plaque and check for $100 courtesy of Pizza Hut.

"I think it's great for all our players, our community and the school," head coach Elliot Uzelac said on Thursday.

"I just can't imagine a better way to start a school year than to have a football team go out there and represent you the way our kids have represented St. Joe High School," Uzelac explained.

"I'm very proud of them and I know the community is also."

With two games left in the regular season, the Bears are looking to finish a regular season undefeated for the first time since 1988.

That year, St. Joe didn't lose a game until the Michigan State Championship.

St. Joe is on the road at Mattawan on Friday.
