Published 3:00 am Friday, October 30, 2015

The Pike County Bulldogs already have a home playoff game secured heading into their match up later this evening, but they will play for pride on senior night when Washington County comes to Bulldogs Stadium.

The Bulldogs (7-1, 5-1) look to get things back on track this week after their first loss of the season last week against Daleville.

“We have a great week of practice and I believe our guys have bounced back,” said Bulldogs head coach Fred Holland. “They are very positive about the things that we are doing.”

The Bulldogs hope to send their 13 seniors off with a win on senior night.

“It’s something your going to remember for the rest of your life. Those guys have worked really hard to get to the point to where they are today. We look forward to our seniors having a good night.”

Washington County (8-1, 7-0) comes in as one of the hottest teams in Class 2A.

“As far as our game plan, we take things week by week,” Holland said. “It’s not any different than the games we have already had. Washington County has a great football team.

“We just try to concentrate and improve over all,” Holland said. “A loss hasn’t changed anything that we have been doing. It just allows us to be a little bit more focused on what we have been doing.”

Throughout the year, the Bulldogs have adjusted the playbook each week to suit the challenges of each opponent.

“We make adjustments for the teams that we play,” Holland said. “It’s not about finding things to do. We are who we are. We don’t change anything. We play a tough brand of football and your brand speaks for itself.”

Washington County has won the last eight games relying on a strong running attached.

“They are a great football team,” Holland said. “They do a good job in their running game. That is their key. They exploit people with their pass because everyone is geared up to stop the run. They make a lot of big plays because of the run.”

Kickoff between Washington County and the Bulldogs is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Bulldogs Stadium.
