Williams preps Dogs for final challenge



The experienced head coach and his staff spent the latter part of the week implementing specific adjustments to prepare for the EMCC team they will face on Dec. 8.

“You go into every game seeing things they do on offense, defense, special teams, and you have your special game plan adjustments off of the base foundation of what you’ve done all year,” Williams said. “So, we’re not reinventing the wheel or anything, but there’s a few things we can add — route adjustments, a couple of plays here and there or defensive calls here and there that we feel like marries nicely with what we’ve been doing all year and can maybe make a difference for us in the championship game.”

Also going undefeated in their regular season, the 11-0 Lions will undoubtedly be the Bulldogs biggest challenge they have faced this fall.

“When you look at them on film, they’re definitely the best team we will have played all year. I could pull guys at positions, or units even, from other teams that I think are as good as the ones on East Mississippi, but not the whole package,” Williams said. “They’re going to be certainly the toughest challenge of the year for us, but it’s as it should be with it being a national championship game.”

GMC is providing fan buses to travel to Biloxi for the championship game, which have a small number of seats still available. Those interested in traveling on the buses should call Karen Wright at 478-387-4704 during regular business hours.
