Cats and Cards broke bread Monday night at the Bayou Bowl Scholarship Banquet. Josh Shores is pictured speaking to a captive audience of both Bridge City and Orangefield players and fans.

The banquet begins a week of Bayou Bowl activities that has become a tradition among high school football fans in the annual get-together.

The finale comes on Friday, Nov. 4 when the Bridge City-Orangefield Rotary Club awards the Buzzie Gunn Trophy immediately following the game.
