Gridiron season starts this Friday – just across the line

Bulldog fans should enjoy the special treat in store this weekend, with the start of the 2014 football season Friday night, August 22.

With a season in front of us that sees six home games and four away trips, it should be a fun year for both the Dawgs as well as the fans.

This Friday’s season opener sees the Bulldogs on the road, but it’s the shortest trip of the season as we head south, just across the line to neighboring Pickett County.

Kickoff is slated for 7:00 p.m.

Everyone is reminded that looking at the schedule, the second game of the season recently had a location change, meaning the August 29 contest against the Trimble County Raiders will now be a home game at Bulldog field.

That change not only gave Clinton County six home contests this year, but also meant that beginning with the August 29 matchup against Trimble County and the September 26 game against Metcalfe County, local fans will be enjoying a five game home stand.


Congrats to Kenny

Golf Dawg Kenny Stinson put together a nice round of golf Monday afternoon (and evening as it finally finished) in the All “A” Classic Regional Tournament at Dale Hollow Lake State Resort.

Stinson finished the nine-hole tournament with a two-over 38 to qualify for the All “A” Classic State Tournament.

The boys’ state is set for Saturday, September 6, at Eagle’s Nest Country Club in Pulaski County.

The girls’ All ‘A’ Classic regional golf tourney was slated to be played this week on Wednesday also at Dale Hollow. Results from that outing can be expected in next week’s Clinton County News.

Fall Big Blue Preview in your hands

As I’ve mentioned, because of the wide spread between the starting times of the various sports involved, the fall Big Blue Preview always presents the most challenges we face in putting out one of our three annual preview special sections.

However – here you have it and we certainly hope you not only find it enjoyable – but informative as well. Get to know the players and coaches, snip out the schedules and make it a point to get out to a few of the games/matches of all our Big Blue fall athletes.

They wear the uniform of our community – they deserve our support.

Go Blue!
