Liberty Patriots (Bakersfield, CA) vs Clayton Valley Ugly Eagles (Concord, CA)
Central Valley vs East Bay
Game Five of the 2021 Honor Bowl a glorious finale for a two-week, nine-game Honor Bowl National Showcase.
The Visiting Liberty Patriots travel to NorCal from Bakersfield to finally be in the Honor Bowl. They had been scheduled to play in 2020 in SoCal and were of twenty teams saddened that the event was canceled. Head Coach Bryan Nixon was adamant to be part of the showcase in 2021 and we are pleased they will have the opportunity to experience why The Honor Bowl is ‘more than just a football game!’
Home team Clayton Valley will be in The Honor Bowl for the third time. Head Coach Tim Murphy thanks us for another opportunity to play in ‘one of the best showcases’ he has ever been part of! In 2019, the Ugly Eagles season became the CIF-NCS DII Champions, DII NorCal Champions and finished the season as the CIF D2-AA State Champions. Clayton Valley only allowed an average of 10 points a game throughout the playoffs with only 2 turnovers in 5 games. Head Coach Tim Murphy was voted Bay Area Coach of the Year and has strong returners from the ’20 season.
This is the third of three games that will have a strong patriotic presence especially with the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
