Well she meant that the team was struggling. but her prediction couldd be right as the Bulldogs are advancing yard after running yard on into the state quarterfinals.
They are a good football team. A running team. If they pass the photographers all around the field get confused and lost and have no idea where the ball is.
Watching how this offensive line blocks down and opens holes for their speedy backs tells us that they are coached well. The speedy and agile backs add at least a few yards per carry, but when a team is pinned on the 1/2 yard line and that line blocks everyone so their very speedy back can go 99.5 years untouched for a TD tells you that they are a very special group. They see the ring in front of them.
It is hard to say what will happen when they face a strong defense with an explosive offense. Oil City was solid for three years but eventually ran up against division two college-level high school squads from the WPIAL.
So this will be fun to see if this team has that next level? So far they look like they might, but Juniata scored 27 points. That is a lot of points to give up.
Meadville scored 34.
