The Bulldogs hope to eliminate mistakes against Glascock in the second week of high school football, especially on special teams.
“Some things we learned, like to not field punts inside the 10-yard line, you can’t learn in practice,” Simpson said.
The first-year head coach also expects his non-starters to be more prepared this week to handle the workload that comes with playing at the varsity level.
“There are some things we learned as a coaching staff like work on our depth,” Simpson said. “We’ve got seven seniors and four juniors, so we’re extremely young. The rest of the team is freshmen and sophomores that are having to play.”
Regardless of the team’s youth and depth, Simpson expects the Bulldogs to come out tomorrow night with their heads up and ready to play.
“Their spirit’s not broken,” he said. “Our kids are very positive.”
GMC Prep and Glascock go head-to-head Friday night at Davenport Field with the opening kick-off slated for 7:30 p.m.
