“Mark Muncie (Bulldog Defensive Coordinator) has our defense playing very physical and pursuing the ball. He and Coach Prince have done a fantastic job all year with them.
We were playing without Carlo Chicko and with some newer players and some players out of position, but they came to play. I was very impressed with the Russell quarterback who kept getting hit, but got up every time. He is a tough kid. Kaden Johnson is a great player and put us on his back with the two punt returns for touchdowns. We will get back to work trying to prepare for a great opponent in Raceland.”
