The final farewell to the "Head Bear," Coach Frank McClellan (1940-2020)
The final farewell to the "Head Bear," Coach Frank McClellan (1940-2020)
Tuesday, April 21, 2020

In loving memory of James Franklin "Frank" McClellan

"Head Bear"


Barton School District has been blessed to have such a distinguished, christian man to lead our sports program for  over 30 years. Under McClellan, Barton set state records for consecutive regular-season victories (111), consecutive conference victories (74) and overall consecutive victories (63). Not only did he put Barton Football on the map, he loved the Barton Community and he had a genuine heart for the boys he coached, the students he taught, and the kids he drove home on the bus each day. Farewell Coach, we will miss you.
