BRYAN - The Bryan Vikings will open the 2008 season Friday night at 7:30 when they host the Cy Falls Golden Eagles. The Vikings are coming off back to back playoff appearances and if they are going to make it 3 in a row they will need to replace 8 defensive and 7 offensive starters.
One of the returnees that Coach Bellard will be building around is running back Monterell Washington who rushed for over 1000 yards a year ago.
At halftime of the game, Viking Stadium will be renamed Merrill Green Stadium in honor of the school's legendary head football coach and athletic director.
Green arrived in Bryan in 1972 and retired in 1991.
