What We Do
Bleeding Bruin Blue is a blog covering the Bethany Christian Bruins, founded on August 6, 2008. The blog has averaged nearly 700 hits per month and covered over 1,300 events (as of November 28, 2010); it is the most complete source of compiled Bruin game summaries during its life.

One notable feature of Bleeding Bruin Blue is its Athlete of the Week award, given each Sunday to the Bruin who demonstrated the most superior athletic performance (including objectives such as sportsmanship and fair play) during that week. Since its inception 13 days after the blog began, it has been awarded 81 times. Middle school as well as high school athletes are eligible: nearly one in eight winners comes from grades six through eight. The most frequent winner has been Marla zumFelde with 9 awards, followed by 2010 alumni Seth Kauffman and Mikey Kelly with eight and six respectively. Sol Brenneman is the only athlete to win multiple awards in middle school; he and senior Ben Mast are the only athletes to win in non-consecutive years. The complete rules and procedures to nominate can be found here.
