ABOUT THE TEAM

Coach: Phil Witker, third year

Last season: 0-10, 0-8 NWOAL

Returning letter winners: 11

Returning starters: Offense 6, defense 7

Schemes: Veer offense/​4-2-5

Top players: Seniors Mark Harris, 5-9, 211, RB-LB; Conner Williams, 6-0, 200, OL-DL; Brady Harlett, 5-9, 180, WR-DB; Tylor Swartz, 5-8, 165, WR-DB; J.D. Sanderson, 6-1, 195, OL-DE. Juniors Anthony Reyes, 6-0, 180, OL-DL; Sophomores Robbie Gilsdorf, 5-9, 144, RB-DB; Bryce McComb, 6-1, 153, QB-DB.

Outlook: Witker believes he has the Bulldogs heading in the right direction. The 54 players are the largest turnout during his tenure.

Harris, Williams, Harlett, Reyes and Sanderson are among a group of returning letter winners who are capable of leading the Bulldogs.

"Hopefully, we'll be competitive on Friday nights," Witaker said.

At quarterback, the Bulldogs are turning to McComb, a strong-armed sophomore. Witaker believes Gilsdorf, another sophomore, also has a chance to help the Bulldogs improve this season.
