Graduation hit the Bulldogs pretty hard, but head coach Johnny Ray does return a few players with experience this season. “We are going to be young,” Ray said. “After graduating 11 seniors, many of which were two-way starters, finding experience is going to be tough. I look for us to be shaky the first few weeks, then if we hit our potential, we should be very respectable.”. Quarterback Justin Sheets (5-10, 180, Jr.) leads the Bulldogs into the 2019 season. Sheets has a few weapons, including running back DeSean Richey (5-10, 165, So.), who can also step in and play quarterback. Tailback Cobe Prather (5-10, 195, Sr.) gives the Bulldogs a dangerous run game. Trinton Hiltzman (5-9, 240, Jr.) starts at center on the offensive line. 


A few guys might go both ways for the Bulldogs, especially early on in the season. Prather starts at linebacker, while Hiltzman plays defensive end. Krisdon Compton (6-2, 245, Jr.) starts opposite Hiltzman at end, providing the team with two players that can get upfield and cause problems for opposing offenses. C.J. Compton (6-5, 280, Fr.), the defensive tackle in the 3-2 scheme, is a young player with tremendous potential. The coaching staff includes Mike Moore, Shon Villars and Jericho Whatley.
