Mid-County Madness to become Bum Phillips Bowl

The Port Arthur News has announced that starting with the 2014 football game between PNG and Nederland, it will now be known as the Bum Phillips Bowl.   The legendary coach passed away at the age of 90 last Friday on the same night that Nederland beat PNG 21-17 in the latest game in the series.   Both schools along with the Phillips family agreed to the idea.  A traveling trophy will be created with Bum's likeness that will be given to the winning team after the game.
