Louisa, Ky. — It’s finally football Friday night in Lawrence Co. as the Bulldogs will open up the season in Salyersville against District Foe Magoffin Co. who are 2-1 on the season.
The Dawgs have 54 players on the roster including 14 Seniors and will open up the season with a new starting quarterback with three viable options with Junior Alex Strickland, Sophomore Abner Collinsworth and talented Freshman Talon Pollock.
Lawrence Co. should be stout up front with Seniors Kyle Davis, Ethan Whitt and Micheal McCauley, Juniors Levi Gauze and Tyler Bowens along with Sophomores Trey Daniels and Dylan Whitt.
Senior Danny Hall is always a threat to score any time he touches the football either catching it or on special teams, Junior Blue Fletcher and Senior Andrew Tackett are returning to the backfield and should provide some experience running the football.
On defense Sophomore Dylan Ferguson and Senior Brandon Davis are returning starters and hope to lead on that side of the ball.
Junior soccer player Logan Southers will handle kicking duty’s in his first season on the gridiron in high school.
