BEATRICE, Neb. – The Todd Ekart era has begun at Beatrice. 

Ekart returns to the Orangemen football program after being an assistant under Bob Sexton from 2007-2011. He has coached in western Nebraska over the last seven year, and is honored to be returning to Beatrice to lead the football program. 

"Places like Beatrice, your goal is district championship playoffs, and then you look ahead to looking for state championships," Ekart said. "So we’re just going to continue that. And just like everyone else, we’re going to take it one game at a time. Those are our goals. And when you’ve got the tradition behind ya, that’s kind of the expectation."

The Orangemen open the season at home against Norris.
