Around Lauderdale County: Tigers look to figure out new Warrior scheme



Bulldogs aim to rebound after tough loss

    Times are tough for head coach Chris Richmond and the Clarkdale High School Bulldogs, as the team is fresh off of a 29-27 loss to rival Enterprise High School last week. The challenge this week will not only be forgetting last weeks heart-breaking loss, but also preparing for an always tough Bay Springs team today.

    “We had an upbeat practice today,” Richmond said on Monday. “Our kids understand, it's senior  day next week, and our kids understand they need to get after it.”

    Although the Bulldogs only have six seniors on their roster, Richmond said his seniors have really stepped up this year, and he could not be any more proud of his team.

    “I really appreciate those guys and what they have done this season,” Richmond said. “I proud of them guys, and I hope the team plays real hard for them Friday night.”

    Bay Springs will look to use its athleticism against the Clarkdale, as they have been involved in plenty of shootouts this season. One thing Richmond said he will do is to hold the ball and try to control the clock to prevent a track-meet style game against Bay Springs.

    “We are going to control the ball,” Richmond said. “It is important for us to control the tempo. If we can control the clock and manage the score, I think we can play with them.”

    After losing last week, it appears Clarkdale will need to win its two final district games against Bay Springs and Mize if it wants to secure a fourth and final playoff spot.

    “Our focus is worrying about the next one,” Richmond said. “We just want to win one right now, that's our goal. I told our kids to come our and play loose this week, we have nothing to lose.”
