Bean leads Douglass to school's first football win

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) One win down and plenty more to go. That's how Frederick Douglass high school is looking back on the school's first ever win on the football field.

After losing to Danville in the season opener, the Broncos bucked back Friday to beat Tates Creek 49-22.

"It was a huge win because everybody doubted us after last week's loss," said Douglass quarterback Montaveon Bean. "So we had to come out and make a statement."

Montaveon Bean, who transferred from Henry Clay, said he and his teammates have been working hard to mesh as a team.

"It was hard at first because as a quarterback I had to get chemistry with my receivers and all that and get used to playing with other people. We just combined quick. Like I knew these guys, but I had never played a game with them."

In Friday night's historic win, Bean passed for 225 yards and three touchdowns. He also added one rushing touchdown, the first score in Douglass history.

"I was just amazed. I was shocked," said a smiling Bean. "I didn't even have words for it. I was hyped for real, really hyped."

Bean knows his big night wouldn't have been possible without a little help with his new friends.

"Offensive line did a great job, receivers catching balls making plays, running back he's making plays opening up the passing game for the offense. We had an overall good offensive game. I hope it's like that every week.
