Following a Thursday night shut-out with both freshman and JV teams winning against Greenville, the varsity boys travelled to T.A. “Cotton” Ford Stadium, in Greenville, and were victorious Friday, Aug. 27th.

The Bulldogs came out with a trick play in the first 6 seconds grabbing the lead right away.  Before the first half ended, quarterback Tyler Jones threw a 64-yard pass to wide-receiver Illonzo McGregor

“Without my team and coaching staff we wouldn’t have won the game at the end of the day.” Jones said

In the fourth quarter, receiver Jayvin Mayfield rounded out the game with a touchdown securing a 63-36 victory for the Bulldogs.

The varsity team will head to SFA’s campus where they will play the Livingston Lions for their second pre-district game on Friday Sept. 3rd.
