The Stamford Bulldogs are coming off an early exit in the 2019 playoffs.
Zhawn Holden is in to take the snaps and lead the Bulldogs read option offense.
17 lettermen are back for the new season, but the offensive line is young and inexperienced.
Head coach Ronnie Casey says it could be a good season, if that group comes through and the seniors lead the way.
Casey said, “On paper it looks great because we’ve got a lot of size and speed, a great quarterback, all of our receivers back, we’re working on some lineman and we’re slowing it down a little bit to make sure we’re all on the same page. With the youthfulness on the line, if those guys come through like we think they will, we’re going to be pretty good.”
Zhawn Holden said, “We have great coaches. We’re all really young but we have unity, we’re all really close, we get along, we understand each other so we play good together.”
12 positions are filled with returning starters in Stamford.
They face state finalist Hamlin at Pied Piper Stadium in Week 1.
