The City of Huntsville honored the 2012 Sam Houston State championship football team in a special ceremony Tuesday January 22 at City Hall.

Mayor Mac Woodward presented Sam Houston State head coach Willie Fritz and several members of the football team with a proclamation stating that Tuesday January 22, 2013 is to be known as Bearkat Football Day in Huntsville.

Mayor Woodward also will be present Thursday Feb. 7 when the Bearkat football team will be recognized at a Sam Houston basketball doubleheader at Bernard G. Johnson Coliseum.

The proclamation honored the Bearkats' outstanding season during 2012 as Sam Houston State earned its second consecutive Southland Conference football championship and advanced to the NCAA Division I Football Championship game for the second consecutive year.

Only eight NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) programs in the history of the playoffs have reached the final game in back-to-back seasons.

The 2012 Bearkats rolled up an 11-4 record this season, finishing the year ranked No. 2 in the nation in FCS football.

Sam Houston won back-to-back Southland Conference titles for the first time in university history. The Bearkats led the nation in scoring with 600 points for the year.
