Team Summary

Coach Paul Orlando and his Bridgeland Bears come into 2021 with a roster full of talented returners. They will have high hopes of returning to the Playoffs and making a deep run after an early exit in 2019. Leading the way on the mound is 2021 LHP Kyle Dickey (TAMUCC Signee), 2021 3B/RHP Liam Koleci (Blinn Signee), and 2022 OF/RHP Murphy Brooks (TCU Commit). Returning in the lineup for the Bears is 2022 SS Conner Weigman (Texas A&M Commit), 2021 1B/ RHP Josh Phillips (NCTC Signee), 2021 OF Tripp Cromer (Hill Commit), and 2022 C Ryan Williams (Miss St. Commit). Coach Orlando will need his team to work toward a higher level of consistency this season, but with options on the mound and plenty of quality players behind the Bears are in a position to make this season count. Look for Bridgeland to make some noise in the 6A Playoffs this season.
