Posted October 10, 2018 at 8:35 am

The Clinton County Bulldogs moved to 6-1 on the year with only three games left in the season.

What has been without a doubt, the best season so far in Clinton County Football history, the Dawgs completely shutout Berea Friday night with a 38-0 win.

Head Coach Jamie Miller was very pleased with how the Bulldogs performed, however, he said there is still much that needs to be worked on.

“Berea is a much improved team,” Miller said. “We jumped out on them pretty quick and then had a lightning delay and it kind of slowed things down a little. We got everybody a lot of playing time.”

Miller said once they had a continuous clock, he was able to get every body on the bench in for good quality playing time.

“I’m pretty pleased with the way we played,” Miller said. “They get excited about it and they want to go out there and compete. That shows us what they can do come game time. There are some kids who just perform better in a game and others who perform better in practice. It answers some questions you have about the future.”

One thing Miller said he will be working on this week is taking care of the ball.

“We didn’t have any turnovers, but we came close to having a couple of fumbles,” Miller said. “We have three tough games left and we have to solidify taking care of the ball.”

Barren County is up next for the Dawgs this Friday night and one thing Miller said they will have against his team is the size of Barren County with their numbers.

“Barren County is a much larger school than we are. They are a 5A school,” Miller said. “They are not a real good 5A school, but they are good for our caliber. We have to show up and play. We have to cut penalties and play well. It should be a dog fight.”

Miller said this week his team needs to get back to fundamentals and work on the offense.

“We need to work on second level blocks and working on double teams,” Miller said.

Clinton County’s game Friday night will kick off at 7 p.m.
