A West Michigan high school football field got an unexpected visitor!

Yesterday, West Catholic High School posted a photo of a bear on their football field. It's one of several sightings of the bear within the area around West Catholic, including Holy Cross Cemetery, which is right next to the football field.

The photo of the bear was taken a few days ago.

The school reminded students and others to "keep our campus clean by discarding all trash, especially food, in appropriate receptacles so we don't attract any furry visitors."

No word on which position the bear will be playing on the field this season, but expect opposing teams to call an audible if he takes the field.
