Spencer Phipps ran in Bell’s second touchdown and Burnett completed the extra point conversion with a pass to Ethan Buell. North Laurel’s lone touchdown came on a run by their quarterback.

Bell County’s head coach, PJ Burnett, said he was extremely proud of his team this year.

“We started out in July, and the heat has been relentless throughout the season,” said Burnett. “To have such a successful season over some very good teams is a credit to our players, coaches and parents who dedicated themselves to attending practice every day.

“With the players we have in our youth league, community support, facilities and dedication by our Bell County school administrators, Bell County football will continue to be exciting and successful on all levels.”
