Football – Triumphs, Teamwork, and Togetherness

Football is more than just a game, it brings together students who share a common passion for the sport and strive to represent BCS with school pride.  Our season is one for the books, filled with unforgettable moments, remarkable achievements, and lifelong memories.  As we take a look back at the incredible journey, we celebrate the triumphs, teamwork, and togetherness that defined this season.  Like any competitive season, our athletes faced their fair share of challenges, from injuries to tough opponents, as well as obstacles encountered that tested resilience and determination.  However, they refused to let these setbacks define them.  Instead, they embraced them as opportunities for growth and rallied together to find solutions.  While victories on the field are undoubtedly rewarding, what truly made this season memorable were the moments of celebration. Whether it was a game-winning touchdown, a crucial interception, or a perfectly executed play, each triumph was a testament to hard work and dedication.

The shared experiences, both on and off the field, brought the athletes closer together.  From team dinners to team-building activities, they laughed, supported each other, and created a bond that will extend well beyond the football season.  These friendships will undoubtedly stand the test of time, serving as a reminder of the incredible journey that was shared.  As our Eagles anticipate the upcoming playoff games, we witness what they have trained for, the power of unity, and the incredible achievements that can be accomplished when they come together as a team.

BCS Eagles Football Players Huddle

“This year our team is young and very talented. We started the year off with a team bonding retreat at the Pineywoods camp. The team attending this was everything a coaching staff could ask for. We got a chance to see our players in a different light outside of football. The organized team bonding exercises came in a close second to the unorganized exercises, if you can catch my drift. Haha

Even though we are young, the team is filled with experienced players. It also helps to have the reigning TAPPS 1A Male Athlete of the year on our roster, in Elijah Burris. Outside of Elijah, the team is filled with outstanding players such as Luke Coburn, Kole Calhoun, Kane Knighton, Heston Magallanes, Tyson Sullivan, David Kier, and a handful of Freshman that are ready to build their legacy and position themselves to be an important part of this team.

On Monday we held our All District meeting, and BCS was represented well.

Offensive All District Selections

1st Team All District

Wide Receiver – Kane  Knighton (2nd overall pick out of 2 picks)

Running Back – Kole  Calhoun (2nd overall pick out of 2 picks)

Utility Back – Elijah Burris( Unanimous selection)

2nd Team All District

Kicker- Josh Simmons

Hon. Mention

Offensive Lineman – Luke Coburn

Quarterback – David Kier

Defensive All District Selections

1st Team All District

Defensive Lineman – James Moore (3rd out of 3 selections) 

Defensive Back – Kane Knighton (Unanimous 1st pick)

Defensive Back – Tyson Sullivan (2nd out of 4 picks)

2nd Team All District

Defensive Lineman- Heston Magallanes

Linebacker – Luke Coburn

Defensive Back – Aiden Rodriguez

It is very important that we keep the momentum and keep ascending in the postseason moving forward. The further we go, the better our All District players have a chance to move up when it comes to All State selections. Their names will be presented in the same order as their All District selections. 

Our team has been working hard everyday on strengthening our bond and confidence in our gameplay. These boys are ready to shake up the state competition and receive the recognition they deserve.

Of course, behind every great team is an unbelievable coaching staff. Coach Danny Martin the Offensive Coordinator, also an Alumni, is the longest tenured coach on the staff and has been a major part of the team’s success. His balanced-aggressive offensive play calling is also a mirror of his coaching style and demeanor which I think plays a great balance for the team. Coach Chad Sims is our other Offense assistant and Head Junior High football coach. This is Coach Chad Sims’ second year coaching with Brazosport Christian School and he adds his own flavor to the team, especially when the mood needs to be lightened. Then there is Coach Pop aka Billy Sims. He is also 2 years into coaching with BCS. He was my coach as a young teenager and it is an honor to have him coaching on the defensive side with me. Every team needs a Coach Pop. Someone that is going to keep it real and say what’s on their mind. He’s our motivational speaker and really enjoys coaching the boys. Coach Pop is also our Junior High football coach.

We believe this is our year to do something great and make history! We need the BCS fanbase to continue traveling with the team and showing their support. Buckle up your seat belts, we are going on a little road trip!!!”  ~Coach Ricky Austin

Volleyball – A Spiking Success 

A Reflection on our Unforgettable Volleyball Season

With a record of (16-13-1), our recent BCS Varsity Volleyball Season was nothing short of incredible and filled with exhilarating matches and unforgettable moments. Teamwork makes the Dreamwork – or so they say, and from the first serve to the final point, our Lady Eagles demonstrated the true power of teamwork. Each player brought their unique skills and strengths to the court that helped to forge a bond fostering friendships and a sense of unity that propelled them to success. Bo Coburn and Hannah Kimbrough were selected 1st Team All District, and JuliAnna Crews and Christy Essy were selected 2nd Team All District. Way to go Lady Eagles!

No season is without its challenges, and our volleyball journey was no exception. Adapting to strategies and supporting each other through grueling practices and tough opponents in turn fostered growth both individually and as a team. We won Bi-District Playoff Round vs. Victoria Faith 3-0 and then lost in the District Area Round to Living Stones (3-0). We placed 3rd in District with a Record of (8-4). From hard-fought matches to come-from-behind wins, each triumph was a testament to our hard work and dedication. The joy and excitement that filled the gym after every victory united our school community and fostered a sense of pride. The memories created, the friendships built, and the skills honed will forever be cherished, serving as a constant reminder of the remarkable season that was shared.

“This year we are graduating (6) Seniors – All starters: Hannah Kimbrough, JuliAnna Crews, Stevie Aguilar, Christy Essy, Brooklyn Sheffield, & Atley Luster. Our returning Varsity Players are: Bo Coburn, Carlie Martinez, Bella Newby, Calleigh Bowen, and Jillian Garrett. We will be looking forward to infusing our team with young talent from our JV squad and an 8th grade group that nearly brought home the First Gulf Coast Athletic League Championship in School History. We are moving up to 2A next year but we are looking forward to the challenge!“ ~Athletic Director Robby Crihfield

Cross Country – Running Towards Success

Cross country is a sport that challenges individuals both physically and mentally, pushing them to their limits and beyond. Our school’s cross country team has recently completed their memorable season filled with determination, perseverance, and triumph. From grueling practices with Coach Amanda to unpredictable weather conditions (especially at the state meet in Waco), our team faced numerous obstacles throughout the season. However, it was through these challenges that they grew stronger, pushing through barriers, developing resilience, and reaching new heights. They discovered the value of time management and the impact of a positive mindset that will help them far beyond the racecourse, shaping them into more resilient, determined, and focused individuals. The memories created and the friendships forged will forever be cherished, serving as a reminder of the incredible season shared.

“The 2023 BCS Cross Country program came to an exciting close at the TAPPS Cross Championship in Waco, Texas. This was a great and much improved season for all of our runners – not to mention our school which hosted the ‘1st Annual Brazosport Christian School Invitational’. Below are just a few highlights from this season.

The year the Middle School Girls team changed the game for BCS! Not only did they take home three 1st Place Team plaques, our girls now hold spots #1 through #8 for the best Middle School Girl’s time for the 1600M. Let’s not stop there, they also hold spots #1-#6 on the 1.5 Mile race. Did we forget to mention, they hold spots #1-#5 in the 3000M race. Both Finely Krsak and Scott Wilson set new school records in the 1600M and 1.5 Miles; respectively. We could not be more proud of these ladies and the work they put in this year.

The High School Girls also gave impressive performances all year long. In the 3200M, Valerie Gonzalez set a new school record with Julie Duran finishing the year in the #4 spot on the 3200M best times at BCS. Both girls did great at the State Championship and improved upon times from last year.

The High School Boys gained their first 1st Place Plaque this year. Although we didn’t see any school records fall this year, but Eric Pigott and Garrett Jones moved into BCS’s Top 10 5000M runs at #5 and #9; respectively. In the 3200M, this year’s team now holds 7 spots in the Top 11 times at BCS. And finally, the BCS Boys Team finished in 8th place at this year’s State Championship – our best showing to date.

As the season comes to a close, we hope everyone continues training and we’ll see these runners back in action for Track & Field!” ~ Coach Ressler

Cheer – Spreading Spirit and Unity

Cheerleading is more than just pom-poms and energetic routines. It’s a sport that requires dedication, teamwork, and a passion for spreading school spirit. The primary mission of our cheer team is to energize the crowd and rally support for our school’s athletes with their infectious enthusiasm, creative routines, and captivating stunts. Driven by a relentless pursuit of excellence, they continually challenge themselves to improve their skills, perfect their routines, and push the boundaries of what they thought possible. Cheerleaders are not just performers, they are ambassadors of positivity. They radiate positivity, uplifting and encouraging their fellow students, athletes, and even rival teams. Next month, our cheer teams have the opportunity to compete in TAPPS for cheer.

“Our Varsity Cheer team will perform a dance mix called Glam Mix! This is a pom routine, and they are putting in extra hours outside of school hours and during their school period to prepare for this competition! Practice the way you plan to perform is the way we like to put it! The chances for Varsity winning a trophy are very high if we work as a team! This TAPPS competition will take place on December 3rd-5th in Burton, Texas. Our Captain, Bella Newby, will be leading our Varsity girls with our strengths of using signs and chanting our favorite cheers! Their dedication and hard work have brought them this far, and we can’t wait for competition this year and years to come!

Our Junior High Cheer through this TAPPS competition will only be to get feedback on what we can grow as a team for our Junior High division! They will be performing a dance mix called Jock Jams Pom! Even though we can’t place, we plan to train and work hard to get great feedback from professionals in the cheer world. Our captain, KaCee Ressler, will lead our girls in the strength of dance! Dance and yelling are our biggest strengths, and we can’t wait to use them on the dance floor! Their dedication, time, and 110% have brought them this far, and we cannot wait for so much more!” ~Coach Kaia Rogers

Tap into TAPPS

Last week several staff members from coaches to administration headed to Waco, TX for the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) Conference. TAPPS is an organization that serves BCS and schools like us by providing an organized academic and sports alignment for competitions such as Seasonal Sports, Math, Calculator Use, Science, One Act Play, Prose, Poetry, Speech, Spelling, Art, Photography, Short Film, and so many more. The annual conference is to educate coaches, teachers, and staff on the opportunities for competition and familiarize them with the rules for each category.

TAPPS also uses this opportunity to hand out individual awards and school awards that were achieved throughout the year. Coach Ricky Austin won Male Coach of the year for this past school year, and Elijah Burris won Athlete of the year as well. Not only did we have coaches and students highlighted, but out of the 77 schools that are in our 1A division, BCS placed in 6th place overall! We are so excited about how close we are to winning the “Henderson” Award which goes to the top school in each category from 1A to 6A. To receive this award, our school must excel not just in sports, but in the academics competitions as well. The more students that we have participate in the academic categories, the more chances our school has to win.

Laura Sandler, our Fine Arts Director is very excited about the chances of taking home the Henderson award soon. There are so many categories that are still available for our students to participate in and it’s just a matter of time before we’re able to fill those slots and gather more points pushing us further up the line to the top space.

If your child is interested in participating in the TAPPS Academic competitions, please contact Laura Sandler at lsandler@1bcs.org or the secondary office.

Art in Nature 

Our High School Art students had the opportunity to be in nature on a field trip to the local Wildlife Preserve with Sherry Evans. By taking in their natural surroundings, artists can interact with nature using their senses to help them create abstract or realistic art. Not only were our students able to have fun, relax, and take in their surroundings, they were also able to be inspired by the beauty that our natural world has to offer.

Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation 2023 Collage

BCS and our parents pampered our teachers and staff for an entire week for teacher appreciation! There was lunch, breakfast tacos, coffee, churros, massages, gifts, and SO MUCH MORE!!! Thank you to our teachers for doing such an amazing job with our students, and thank you to our school and parents for taking the time to donate items that were used to treat our staff!!

Track and Field

Track and Field students that made State, were sent off in style last week! Some of our younger kids and cheerleaders even made signs! Way to go Track and Field! Boys won the Championship for Division 1 for the second year in a row and girls came in runner up! Go Eagles!!

Pledge at Angleton National Day of Prayer Event

Caleb Seal was asked to do the Pledge at Angleton National Day of Prayer Event. A local committee includes churches and officials in the nearby areas to meet in Angleton and have an observance for this special day. Way to go Caleb Seal!

Fostee Awards

Every year Mrs. Foster takes a “Field Trip” with her students – but they don’t leave the campus. This year the assembly room was decorated with Space themed items and all of her English students dressed up for a fun afternoon of “Fostee Awards”. Every student won something! It was a fun afternoon had by all, and it was such a joy seeing the students’ smiling faces!

Senior Walk

Each year, our Seniors line up in the back hallway dressed in their cap and gowns and make their way to the front of the school, through the parking lot, and into the Willow Church Chapel. Most of the time this includes their “Senior Song” and the entire school lines up in the hallway and cheers them along. It’s a memory that will last a lifetime. This year was no different, the students that will soon turn to Alumni made their way to Willow Church and enjoyed a memory filled chapel of music and speakers. Congratulations to our Class of 2023!!!

Bella Notte – Junior and Senior Prom 

Congratulations to Seth Henderson and Faith Simmons, BCS Prom King and Prom Queen

The end of the school year is drawing near and for some of our students it brings on the excitement of a few traditions that they’ve come to expect in April and May. As they’ve seen from the years prior to them, the Jr. and Sr. classes enjoy prom where they get to dress up in their best and spend an evening feeling glamorous and dancing the night away. This year’s Prom was held at The Springs Event Center in Angleton, and as the last big event prior to graduation, it was a night to remember! The theme this year was Bella Notte (Beautiful Night) and Seth Henderson and Faith Simmons were crowned BCS King and Queen. Congratulations!

8th Grade Lock-In

Another tradition that our students look forward to each year is the class Lock-in. This is a GALA Auction item that Amanda Mize with Edward Jones and The Miska Family with TJ’s Lube purchased for their 8th graders. Friday evening, parents dropped off their 8th grade students for a night of fun as the kiddos were locked in the secondary building for the night. Thank you to the volunteers who helped make this year’s lock-in a huge success! The students enjoyed a space themed escape room, Alien Attack Game, Food and drink (especially Dr. Pepper), Minute to Win it Games, Scavenger Hunt, and over 6 hours of 9 square!! We hope they made memories and enjoyed the festivities of the night!

Children’s Museum Field Trip

1st Grade Field Trip at the Children's Museum.

Our First grade students along with Mrs. Cravey and Mrs. Ramos attended the Houston Children’s Museum recently for a field trip. At BCS, we believe that field trips help to inspire creativity and provide hands-on learning experiences that help aid in the instruction of the classroom curriculum. Plus, let’s be honest, field trips are just FUN!! First grade had a blast playing and learning at the Children’s Museum Exhibits!

Brazosport Christian School

What Is Going On at BCS?


The end of the 2022/23 school year is on the horizon and BCS is full of activities! From educational opportunities and sports, to senior recognition and testing, there is something going on each week that keeps our school calendar full! Be sure to keep up with goings on weekly via the school newsletter sent out by Mr. Sikes, or you can catch up with things that happened recently with the school blog sent out by Anna Magallanes, and you can keep in touch with goings on and other information via our school podcast hosted by Mr. Burris.

Recently our lower school was blessed to participate in a Seder lead by Mr. Shane Newby, one of our board members, and parent to students at BCS. He took the time to set up the different elements of the Seder and explained the meaning of the elements and led a full ceremony.

Mrs. Wied shared words below on why it is important to BCS that our students learn with hands-on experiences:

At BCS, we know that children learn best by being involved in hands-on learning. When teaching Missions it is essential to encourage the students by creating interactive experiences. Whether it’s learning about Moses and his encounter with God at the burning bush or understanding the Exodus of the Israelites and the ten plagues by enjoying a candy activity. Artistic creativity also helped students gain understanding of the Lord’s sacrifice as they painted their own scene of the first communion. Elementary 1st-5th grade students were blessed to participate in a Seder that included elements symbolic of the difficulty and celebration of the Israelites release from Egyptian slavery. We give glory and honor to God for the opportunity to teach the students about Him and his kingdom. We serve the risen savior Jesus Christ and praise His name.

~ Mrs. Wied

8th Grade Field Trip

GALA was a recent fun event that helped raise funds for our school, but also provided fun opportunities for some of our students and families! Our 8th grade students had the opportunity to attend a field trip to Galveston and play at The Pleasure Pier. Thank you to the Gilbert Family for sharing your Bucket Raffle Winnings with the 8th Grade Class! We believe that students should have a rigorous quality education, but we also believe that there should be time for rest and play! We hope you had fun 8th Graders!

Valedictorian and Salutatorian Announcement

It’s almost May which brings us to the end of another great school year! As we are all wrapping up in our classrooms and offices, we are eager to have the summer break upon us bringing fun and relaxation after the school year. However, for some students, this is the summer they will have in their memories forever, as the last summer prior to entering the workforce or furthering their education in a higher educational institution. Congratulations to the class of 2023, we hope you carry your memories and relationships with you as you leave our campus to follow your dreams. Congratulations to the Class of 2023, especially to Seth Henderson our Valedictorian, and Caleb Seal our Salutatorian!

Jr. Class Career Fair at College

Brazosport College hosts a career fair each year that the Junior classes from all the local high schools get invited too. This career fair has speakers in different career fields, a booth area where local businesses can set up and talk about their career fields and what it takes to get a job in that field, and other information useful to students that will be graduating soon and either furthering their education or entering the workforce. The BCS Jr. Class spent the morning attending seminars in work fields they were interested in, and learning about what is next in their futures, all while getting a glimpse of life on a college campus.

Serve Day

Brazosport Christian School

Serve Day


BCS student serving her community by helping to organize!Twice a year, Brazosport Christian School gears up to serve our local community.  This requires months of prep work to ensure we can smoothly transport over 300 students and teachers to various locations in our community to serve in different ways.  This year’s Spring Serves Day, our school helped by planting plants, cleaning parks, sidewalk chalking art for the elderly to enjoy on their afternoon walks, sorting through donated items and getting them ready for resale, collecting food for the hungry, and more.  One of the qualities we like to instill in our students is serving with a loving heart.  Before we set off to serve, we remind our students that this day is supposed to be fun, and also and more importantly, it’s an opportunity to help others.  Our goal is to teach our students through bible study, weekly worship, and twice annually serve day’s,  that serving is what God ordains us to do.

Seth Liles, one of the Bible Teachers at BCS had this to share about our Service Day:

Have you ever asked yourself, “What is God’s plan for my life”? Well, as with any question we have in life, the first place we ought to turn to for answers is God’s very own words to us.

Romans 8:29 CSB reads,

“For those he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son.

We find here that it is God’s plan, Ephesians 1:4 says “before the foundation of the world”, that we should grow in Christlikeness. But how do we do this? It is not enough to merely know what to do. The thought doesn’t count. We know we ought to eat better, exercise more, and be more healthy. And yet to grow in health requires making healthy choices. The knowledge must be put into action.

This is what the Sophomore Bible class at BCS has been working to accomplish. With Donald S. Whitney’s book Spiritual Disciplines For The Christian Life and 1 Timothy 4:7-8, “Train yourself in godliness. For the training of the body has limited benefit, but godliness is beneficial in every way.” As our theme verse, we have been taking practical steps to “grow in godliness”.

We have studied and practically engaged in several Spiritual Disciplines and will continue to do so throughout the rest of the year. We have worked through some that one would expect, such as bible intake, prayer, silence and solitude, and even fasting. There are also some that one may not expect, such as journaling, learning, stewardship, and serving. Each thoroughly examined and practiced for the sake of godliness. Not out of obligation or in effort to gain God’s love and favor or earn salvation, but from a place of joyful obedience because we have been saved by grace, we strive to grow in our personal relationship and experience with our heavenly Father who already loves us and calls us His sons and daughters.

One really exciting aspect of this class is not only the chance to have conversations about Spiritual Discipline, but also the chance to put our words into actions. After each we spend time discussing each discipline, looking at the biblical examples, the history and traditions, and practical application, we then actually discipline ourselves with that exercise. This is most recently seen as we looked at the discipline of serving. After hearing from Mr. Whitney that “serving is one of the most sure and practical means of growth in grace”, and “serving typically looks as unspectacular as the practical needs it seeks to meet”, we concluded this particular unit by participating in BCS serves day. As I stood and watched my students serve at Harvest for the Hungry, assisting this organization as they help feed people in our community who are nutritionally insecure, I was able to see words on a page and conversation in a classroom come alive. As these students presented themselves as a living sacrifice, loving their neighbor as themselves, this became a snapshot of what BCS is all about. The students have learned to live out this second half of what Jesus called the greatest commandment because they are in a school environment that cultivates and demonstrates the first half of that commandment; loving God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength (Matthew 12:28-31).

This is stated in the mission for BCS. To “provide families academic excellence with a Biblical worldview and equip students with qualities of knowledge, character, leadership, and service to the glory of God.” This moment was built on a biblical worldview, offering grade-level specific bible classes as part of a rigorous curriculum.

“Academic excellence with a biblical worldview” is accomplished through a curriculum which intentionally focuses on the God who created math, science, art, and language for our good and His glory. This should cause us to love God more.

“Equipping students with knowledge” leads them to love God with their mind. To use the gifts of logic and reason to learn more about God and His creation.

“Equipping students with character” fosters a heart that loves God. This is accomplished through the high expectations placed on the students. To be young men and women of integrity. By taking time each week, during corporate worship chapel, to look at God’s word together and be reminded from various local pastors of the expectation God has for His children to be holy as He is.

“Equipping students with leadership” is how a student can love God with their soul. With the choices and struggles students face on a daily basis, they are given the tools needed to lead at all times in doing what is right. In the classroom, on the court, on the field, in the cafeteria, at home, and in the world.

“Equipping students with service” is a means to love God with all their strength. Psalm 100:2 gives the imperative, “Serve the Lord with gladness”. The life of a Christian is marked by serving like Jesus (John 12:12:17, 13:35). Knowing God more leads to loving God deeper. Loving God deeper moves us to glad obedience. Offering students the opportunity to serve their school and their community is a reasonable and necessary component of a student’s Christian education.

Seeing this vision move from a textbook, to a conversation, to the hands and feet of my students has been a remarkable opportunity. I am grateful to be a partner with Brazosport Christian School in the development, not of future leaders and influencers, but of those who are leading and catalyzing change for the better today.

Grace and Peace,
Seth Liles

Brazosport Christian School continually thanks our families for entrusting us with their children’s education, our teachers and staff for their continued examples and teachings, and our community for allowing us to serve them.
