Canadian Wildcats' foreign-exchange student could return to Australia with state football title


Canadian senior Lachie Beavan, center, helps hold the Australian flag following Canadian's 49-14 victory against Mart in a Class 2A Division I semifinal Friday in Wichita Falls. Beavan is a foreign-exchange student from Australia.

CANADIAN — What?

Was that really an Australian flag in the center of a Canadian Wildcat celebration for beating Mart in the Class 2A Division I state semifinals last week?

Sure was.

And it’s a story the Wildcats coaching staff and players are extremely proud to share.

“Lachie is a teammate,” said Canadian senior captain and wide receiver Braiden Galla. “He’s a brother to us. When he gets into the game, it’s an awesome thing.”

Lachie Beavan is a senior backup wide receiver for the 14-0 Wildcats, who play for the 2A D-I state championship Thursday. Beavan wears No. 82 and gets into the game only when Canadian is routing its opponent.

1. I found this charming post incredibly confusing until I discovered Canadian is a Texas town.

especially when the sportscasters will discuss the Canadian-Mason game today.

3. Canadian won 34-7.

Mason took the lead then Canadian scored and didn't look back. No word as to whether the Aussie got a reception though.
