Can they do it?
After years of disappointments, the Clarkdale Bulldogs opened up this season with two wins. The first was a 20-6 victory over Edinburg and a blowout 42-21 win over West Lincoln.
Last week's games pitted the then 2-0 Bulldogs against the then 1-1 Southeast Tigers. A 42-14 blowout ensued leaving the Tigers at 2-1 and the Bulldogs at 2-1.
Now, Clarkdale must show what it is really made of.
The Bulldogs will travel to Seminary Friday night, a team that beat them 41-6 last year. The bubble has been burst and it is time for the Dogs to show their resilience and spirit.
Last week's game showed strength in Bulldog running back Larry Lewis, who got 119 yards of total offense including an 85-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
Running back Quinn Moffite has also stepped up in recent weeks to make a big impact for the team along with running back Thomas Walters.
Quarterback Justin Culpepper is sure to contribute to a big game on Friday.
The Bulldogs defense may have broken some last week, but they remain strong overall. Linebacker Marcus Hood will likely repeat last week's many tackles.
The game plan remains the same, run the ball hard and control the clock. Hathorn has gotten the kids fired up and ready.
Clarkdale's attitude remains good while their will to win is strong. Friday night is a test that the Bulldogs are looking forward to.
