DOUGLASS, Kan.—As one of the smallest football teams in the Central Plains League, the Douglass Bulldogs are becoming unstoppable. With the 2012 season in progress the bulldogs get better with each passing day and each passing week.
During the first three weeks, leaders of the team stepped up and worked their hardest as they hoped for their hard work to rub off on the rest of the team. As they succeeded in their goals, they became better as a team, but many injuries occurred.
With almost all the football team in attendance at the summer football training camp, the remaining 38 bulldogs have been working hard and playing even harder for each other.
"They get along very well,” said Ast. “One of their strengths is definitely how well they compete for each other."
With a record of 2-1, the boys hope to take another victory this Friday, the 21st, at home against The Wichita Independent School. Although records don't matter to the coaches, they hope the boys stay healthy so they are able to reach their full potential.
For the past four years, many of the players have working with each other under the direction of Ast. As their senior year advances, their coaches wish the boys would keep up their hard work, but have some fun.
"Enjoy it, because this season goes by fast and for some of you, this will be the last chance you get to play," said Ast.
To see the Bulldogs’ effort put into play, they will be hosting The Wichita Independent School on September 21st at 7:00pm.
