At the beginning of the junior varsity football season the DeSoto County Bulldogs didn’t look very good, and that’s being kind. There were only a few players who had played before and it showed. They couldn’t block or tackle and there was no teamwork involved. Many players didn’t appear as if they even wanted to be out there.
Now that the long season is over, the guys left on the team are the ones you’d want at your back while walking down a dark alley. The players still standing after the season finale 33-12 loss to Port Charlotte Oct. 17 have grown as players and young men. They’ve been through the battles of practice and games and while they were beaten up, they never quit. They came through the season much closer as a team and they know who they can trust to stick out a commitment that was made when they went out for the team.
