GMC JUCO preps for Texas bowl game

MILLEDGEVILLE — Going 7-3 in the regular season, the Georgia Military College Bulldogs will have the privilege of competing against yet another top five-ranked team Saturday as they travel to Copperas Cove, Texas to take on Navarro College in the C.H.A.M.P.S. Heart of Texas Bowl.

After just missing post-season play in 2011, the Bulldogs capitalized on one of the toughest schedules in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) to earn their bid to this weekend’s contest.

See video below from earlier in the season.

“It’s tough to make the post-season in junior college because there are not many opportunities,” Bert Williams, head coach, said. “So, I’m proud of them for doing what they needed to do to get this opportunity.”

According to Williams, GMC is not approaching its bowl game any differently though he hopes to take advantage of a healthy group this weekend.

 

“We’re really not doing a whole lot different. We’re still getting after it and working hard,” Williams said.  “We’ve cut back a little bit on the amount of contact. We’re just trying to get everybody healthy and get everybody ready to play their best on Saturday.”

Williams believes his Bulldogs will face one of the best running games in the NJCAA on Saturday against fifth ranked Navarro, a team that averages 315 yards a game on the ground.

“They’re quite good on the defensive side especially. They also run the ball very well offensively,” he said. “They’re definitely one of the best rushing offenses I’ve seen in years. It will be a tough chore to stop them.”

GMC will key off of defensive linemen Jamarlo Alford, Octavius Brown, DaVonte Lambert and Devon Johnson to handle Navarro’s large offensive line.

“They know what’s going to be expected of them. It’s easy to see, especially our defense when they see the monstrous offensive line,” Williams said. “I think the game against Lackawanna was helpful for us to see what it takes to stop a strong running team.”
