What a difference a football year can make.

Just ask Head Football Coach and Athletic Director Joel Fontenot-Amedee.

“I am very excited about this upcoming season,” he told the Bulletin, referring to the winless season last year.

“We have a good group of seniors who have worked for months to get in shape for the upcoming season. And we have brought in a phenomenal group of coaches and staff,” Amedee said, adding more athletes came out for football.

Both the varsity and JV Bulldogs teams showed what they can do in a August 13’s scrimmage at Bulldog Stadium.

The Bulldogs showed significant progress both offensively and defensively at the varsity level, racking up four offensive touchdowns while shutting out La Pryor.

The JV team got a few TDs also.

“The best part of the first scrimmage against an opponent is having an opportunity to evaluate our kids on film and identifying what areas we need to improve,” Amedee said.

“We definitely did some things well, but have a lot we can improve on, so we’re excited to get back to work,” he concluded.

The Bulldogs will travel to Natalia for a scrimmage, and then they open their season in Poeteet on August 27.

The team returns home to face Cotulla on Friday, September 3. That game begins at 7:30 p.m. at Bulldog Stadium.
