Head coach Chad Young said Wednesday that the summer’s continuing rains have slowed progress at Ranburne.
“We had a good day on Thursday, that first day in pads. Friday was kind of sloppy,” Young said. “This week, we’ve gotten rained out about half way through both Monday and Tuesday so we’ve only gotten to practice about an hour and 45 minutes the last two days.”
The Bulldogs have managed to work through one full-scale scrimmage.
“We did about 40 plays Friday and we may do it again this Friday. We’re just going to have to wait and see how much work we get in,” Young said.
The Bulldogs are working toward a jamboree date on Friday, August 23, prior to their season-opening contest at home on August 30 against Mount Zion, Georgia,
The jamboree will also be played at Ranburne. The Bulldogs will play Bowdon, Georgia, for one half beginning at 7 p.m. then tangle with the Cleburne County Tigers for another half.
