If there is one thing that is certain about the upcoming Big Bear High School prep sports year, it’s that no much is certain. But there are a few changes ahead for some of the teams regardless of what effects the COVID-19 pandemic will have on the 2020-21 season.


One school in the Cross Valley League drops its football program. Two new schools join the league for football. Excelsior Charter decided to end its football program after the 2019 season. Reportedly joining Big Bear, Riverside Prep and Silver Valley in the Cross Valley League in 2020 are Trinity Classical Academy and Vasquez.

Trinity played in the Academy League in 2019, going 8-2 and earning the league title. Trinity lost in the first round of the Division 14 championships. The school is located in Valencia.

Vasquez played in the Prep League in 2019, going 3-7 overall and 1-1 in league play behind Rio Hondo Prep. Vasquez is located in Acton.

Big Bear is the three-time defending Cross Valley League champion in football. The Bears will welcome new coach John Stewart to the fold this season. Stewart replaces Dave Griffiths who retired from coaching but remains the Big Bear athletic director.
