The Loraine Bulldogs are anxious to get the 2006 football season started, and that will happen this Friday night, September 1st, when they host the Dawson Dragons. Two years ago the Bulldogs scored 106 points on the Dragons, but gave up 76. That's not going to be the case this year according to second year head coach Jeffrey Stockton.
"Our defense looks the best it has in several years," said Stockton. "We won't be giving up near as many points as we have the past couple of years, I guarantee you that."
Expected to start on offense this Friday will be senior ends Jimmy Grissom, a 205 pounder who has added 35 pounds this summer, and Miguel Acevedo who has been the starting center the past two years. Sophomore Robert Cantu is expected to get the nod at the center position.
Sophomore Jacob Sanchez is expected to get the call at quarterback. He got one start last year in the last game of the year. Senior Zack Gibson and Derek Martinez, a junior, are expected to be the starters in the backfield. Senior transfers Bevian Hermosillo, and junior Stefan Limones will add a lot of depth to the team and will see considerable action. Limones was the starting safety at Trent last season and was named second team all-district there. Hermosillo is a transfer from Marfa where he played 11-man football.
