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"!

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

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.

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".

things are expected once again this season from the Bulldogs.
