The bulldog football team has a lot of playing ahead of them and for some of the seniors, their season is ticking a little too fast. Second year head coach Doug Kerr has enjoyed coaching this years seniors.

“I love getting a chance to work with athletes and making them bigger, stronger, and faster, and better at their sport,” Kerr said. “I want them to have the opportunity to play in college.”

Kerr is preparing the football team for the payoffs. Competition is rising as the team works hard to make it ot the playoffs.

“Our record is a little different this year and we’ve played some new teams. My goal this year as a coach is to make it to the playoffs and be a team that no one wants to play and have the opportunity to make it far this year,” Kerr said.

Being on a football team can be competitive as is, but being a sophomore on the varsity team it can be double the pressure, but Sophomore Gavin Lang says it is just part of it.

“I started playing football when I was in fifth grade, so I have been playing for about six years. Being on the varsity team is no different than the junior varsity team,”  Lang said.

Being on the football team takes a lot of work and dedication. The team members take a lot of pride in being a football player.

“The only difference is that the varsity team is a lot higher pace,” Lang said. “I don’t really feel pressure being on the varsity team, it’s not really about pressure anymore. I get more nervous than anything.”

Some team members have been in the field for their whole high school carrier, one of those boys is senior Jake Grossner.

“A difference from this year’s season from last year’s season is that we’ve become a lot closer,” Grossner said. “Last year there was a few issues on the team but this year we are more united and driven.”

It is the beginning of the season and the boys still have lots of playing to do. One of the many things the boys are looking forward to is the playoffs.

“The next four weeks are what I’m looking forward to most,” Grossner said. “If we make two more wins we can go to the playoffs.”
