"We were very thankful to be able to play this season".....That has been the common theme for every fall sport in the Covid limited 2020 season. Alliance was no different than a lot of high schools in Nebraska.  The Bulldogs lost one game due to Covid cases and quarantines, but were able to play 8 games this season.  AHS Head Coach Chris Seebohm praised his team for continuing to work and play hard despite the situation,  and even though the record was just 1-7, Alliance did a lot of good things and were a better team at the end of the season.  

Seebohm spoke about each of the Senior players and thanked them for their leadership and strong work ethic, and for being great teammates. Most of this years senior class were 4 year team members and multi-year starters and letter winners.  The 2020 class included....Jesus Acosta, Caeson Clarke, Roman Garza, Mario Garza, Keegan Grant, Jaden Kelley, Chase King, Logan Leistritz, Jace Moss, Jaxon Minnick, Jaxon Preble, Zach Tunheim and manager Alex Pfeiffer.  Coach Seebohm also spent a moment to give special thanks to assistant coach Kurt Lambert who is stepping down from coaching after 18+ years with the Bulldogs.  Seebohm also presented the following awards, which were voted on by the team.
