The Clinton County Bulldogs got its season off to a good start by picking up a 52-6 win over Fort Knox on Friday night.

“I’m very happy and we were able to play everybody,” Head Coach Miller said. “We played well. I was kind of concerned about going into a game without a scrimmage. Chase Stines played really well at quarterback. This was his first start at quarterback. I think he threw for 103 yards.”

According to Miller, Noah Pruitt had 194 yards rushing, Jon-Allen Cross had eight tackles with four of those for minus yards.

“He led the team with eight and Devin and Travis Martin, two brothers, had seven each,” Miller said. “We came out and played well. Whatever we did was the right prescription this week so we need to see if we can come out and match it the next time.”

Next week the Bulldogs will have an open week with the Meet the Bulldogs being scheduled for Saturday night.

Clinton County will then host McCreary Central on August 31, followed by a road trip to Pickett County, Tennessee, to take on the Bobcats on September 7.

“We are going to watch some films this week and make some corrections from the other night,” Miller said. “We are going to cut back on some contact and let them get their legs back under them. We will probably give them this Friday off and us coaches will probably do some scouting.”

Miller said he believes his team came out Friday night with a little more confidence.

“We came ready to play. Their speed didn’t hurt us at all,” Miller said. “We have several guys who are pretty quick. We have three of our guys who are faster than their fastest player.”
