You won't find a Bearkat in a zoo, but they're a force of nature in Bossier City.
"This is Bossier High and this is our life. We love it up here and we represent it no matter what," said Jalen Oliver, football player.
Bossier High School traditions run deep, and it’s up to seniors to keep them alive for years to come.
"It’s our time to step up and we got to lead the younger ones," said Oliver.
Homecoming Queen, Dallas Vanderpool, encourages students to make lasting memories during their time here.
"Just always be positive, get out there and meet new people," said Vanderpool, yearbook.
Baseball player, Khalil Bolden, loves his school.
"It's something about waking up in the morning and knowing that I go to Bossier that excites me and makes me want to come to school," said Bolden.
That's why BHS is our week seven winner of the NBC 6 Spirit Stick.
These Bearkats can break it down, but they can also bring each other up.
"There are times Bossier High had ups and downs. I've had mine too, but at the end of the day we still have fun and represent our school and show Bearkat spirit and Bearkat pride," said Oliver.
While, we're still not sure what a Bearkat really looks like, we sure know what they sound like.
And we know their future isn't on the endangered list.
