ORANGE GROVE - The Bulldogs are building a rich football tradition in Orange Grove. Back-to-back district championships will do that. Jerry Bomar's club returns five starters on both sides of the ball, so there are some holes to fill heading into the 2013 season.
"If you have a good program, you're going to graduate guys," Bomar said. "You hope you have a lot of seniors every year and we had some really good football players. We've got a good nucleus back but there are some holes to fill so kids have to step up and we're going to have to coach ‘em. We have a lot of confidence but we also understand that we're going to have to really play, so we look forward to it."
The Bulldogs posted an 11-2 record last season, including an appearance in the Region Semifinals. When you're a member of district 30-3A, you know it will be a tough schedule, but Orange Grove is gaining confidence every year.
"It's something to build on," defensive tackle Gunner New said. "It's a completely different team. We can't reminisce on the past victories; it's a new season and a new team."
"We're trying to roll it over next year, be patient and take it one game at a time," wide receiver Matthew Priddy said.
