White Settlement ISD honored NFL Hall of Famer La'Dainian Tomlinson during half-time of the Bears football game Oct. 27.  

This year, Brewer football players are participating in the LT Prep Academy, a leadership development program that builds leaders who have better academic results, superior leadership, mental toughness, and self-reliance. 

Representatives from the academy provide weekly training for the boys, and the athletes will attend the LT Academy Camp this spring.

Tomlinson spoke to the boys in the locker room before kick off. 

"This program reaffirms what we've been telling our kids for the past four years," said Head Coach Wade Griffin. "We've been a much better team this season, and we've stepped up and been more competitive." 

The Bears have an overall record of 5-3 and a district record of 3-2.
