Mosports.com Class 2 Power Poll
#10 South Callaway Bulldogs(10-2)


Under the direction of head coach Tim Rulo(52-18), the Bulldogs have become one of the most consist programs in Missouri Class 2. In 2013 the Bulldogs and their strong senior class again put together a solid campaign.

This season the Bulldogs must replace several of those talented seniors, but plenty of top players return providing a positive outlook for the 2014 season.

"It was amazing to watch the players, school, and community", commented Rulo. "So proud of the hard work from previous Bulldogs and I'm excited for the future as well"!

The offense, which averaged 38.5 points per game a season ago will return 6 starters. Senior QB Troy Hentges(6-0 170) passed for 1,000 yards, rushed for 405 and will direct the spread attack. All-district running back Cory Hanger(5-9 170) accumulated more than 1,000 yards rushing and receiving. The line will be a source of strength with the return of center Michael Witt(5-9 165), Trevor Miller(5-11 195), and Austin Pierce(5-10 195). Luke Horstman returns at wide receiver.

"We want to be physical blocking both up front and on the perimeter", added Rulo. "We have a large senior class which should provide depth, but getting younger players reps will be key early for push during playoffs".

The defense which allowed just 7.33 points per game will also see the return of 6 starters. Ballard and Horstman return on the defensive line, Ballard earned all-district honors with 75 tackles and 17 tackles for loss. Senior linebacker Dylan Hare(5-11 210) returns as the leader of the defensive unit along with fellow linebacker Trevor Miller(5-11 195).

Hanger returns as an all-state defensive back, he grabbed 5 interceptions a season ago and leads the backfield. Senior Mason Showmaker(5-1 150) earned all-district honors and returns at defensive back. "It all starts up front!", explained Rulo. "We will look to again "swarm and punish" opponents. We have some young linebackers and defensive backs which will need to learn quickly to stop the run and prevent the big play."

The Bulldogs will compete for the first time in the Eastern Missouri Conference and will compete with Bowling Green for the league title. "We must continue tradition of hard work during practice to allow talent on the field to shine".

The Bulldog philosophy has served them well during Rulo's previous six years. Big things are expected once again this season from the Bulldogs.
