This week the Bulldogs will take the time focus on themselves, and fundamentals.
Head coach Hugh Sandifer's team closed the non-district portion of it's schedule with a 28-12 victory over Lubbock Estacado on Friday night. After losing 2 of their first 3 games of the season, the Bulldogs are riding a 2 game winning streak into this week's open date. Some call it a week off, but that's not the case at Wylie, or most schools, for that matter because the work continues as the Bulldogs take this week to get better as a team.
"It helps us work more on [fundamentals] because we're focusing on ourselves more than the other team. It gives us all time to get refreshed and healed up," said Justin Sazon.
"We need to work on fundamentals, and just little details. Definitely have to keep the game tempo up. Just keep getting ready as you go, whenever you got to play," said Marshall Moore.
The timing of the bye week also helps the Bulldogs get ready for the district games that are right around the corner.
"It kind of splits the season. We try to look at the season in three phases with non-district, district, and the postseason, if you're fortunate enough to make the playoffs. We're in the most important part of it right now and that's the district play," said head coach Hugh Sandifer.
After the bye week, Wylie will shift their attention to the district opener against the Big Spring Steers a week from Friday night at Bulldog Stadium.
