This bulldog football season has kicked off to a good start with a record of 3-2. The team is working on making every practice better than the last in order to perform their absolute best.

“Teams are very focused and goal- oriented. Our overall effort in practice and preparation has been good,” Coach Mike Wood said.

Improving and giving their all at practice, the dogs have shown

progress as the season continues. The team has to work together on the field to make big plays happen. Every single individual on the field has an impact on the game and the team’s success.

“Football is a team sport, and it takes 11 players each play to be successful,” Wood said.

Although winning is great, it’s not everything. The coaches know that success is not just measured by wins and losses.

“We have success if our kids give their best effort and execution. Most nights if we accomplish this we’ll be

successful,” Wood said.
Two weeks ago the the Dogs came

up with a loss by 1 with a score of 14-13 against Pittsburg. As the Dogs go into district, they will be practicing hard to make improvements for each opponent.

“All of our district opponents will be tough. We will have to continue to improve on the little things and keep everyone healthy and together,” Coach T.J. Gillen-Hall said.

The Dogs play Chapel Hill tonight at 7:30 at R.E. St. John Stadium. Come watch all of their hard work pay off.
