Travel football opens up at home



Adding to the experience, the league announced recently that Born to Compete will now be involved to help rank the players on both a state and national level, as well as film many of the contests throughout the season.

“Basically, were just trying to build off of last year,” Williams said. “We’re not looking to be a few seasons, then done. We want to build off of each year.”

Head coach of the 11- and 12-year-old team, Daryl Ingram, said he believes the players are hungrier than ever to get out and compete this season, especially having seen what it takes to do well last year.

“Basically, it’s the same guys that are returning from last year, and they are [hungrier] than last year,” Ingram said. “They’re more focused and more determined because they want the team championship this year. I see more leadership.”

With five home games and five away, the Bulldogs look to get their season kicked off at home against the Chargers of North DeKalb, with the first contest of the day beginning at 9 a.m.

“Our first game is North DeKalb, and they’re a new team in the league, but they’ve been in the league before. They’re a big team, and when I say big I mean large in numbers,” Williams said. “We have a few other new teams in the league, so we just want to show them what it takes to play travel football.”

For more information about the Baldwin Bulldogs Youth Football Association schedule or how to get involved call Williams at 478-456-3915, Ingram at 478-457-4291 or Jessie Washington at 478-453-3236.
