Bruins Crist Back for 39th Season at Blacksburg

Posted: Updated:

     Continuity is something Blacksburg High can claim over all others in Southwest Virginia. David Crist enters his 39th season at the home of the Bruins---most of any area coach. The Virginia Hall of Famer says he still enjoys being around young people, and that is what keeps him going. He called this year's version of the Bruins more athletic than in recent years, so he feels like they should be able to run the football better. He questions the VHSL's new system where schools aren't playing for District titles anymore--every game is for power points and the playoffs now. He wondered allowed how communities would respond who have grown accustomed to and fond of the rivalries that meant so much on the path to District titles. The Bruins will play rival Christiansburg in a benefit game before opening on the 30th of August with Giles HS.
