Dawgs tough it out for another ‘V’

Clinton County picked up yet another big win on the gridiron Friday night on Bulldog Field to give the seniors a nice home field send-off for Senior Night.

After trailing to the Warriors, the Dawgs came to the front to all but control the entire second half and march to a 44-22 win over Eminence.

The Bulldog win sent the Warriors back home with just its second loss of the season and a still impressive 7-2 record.

Still, it isn’t nearly as impressive as the 8-1 mark the Bulldogs will be sporting when they head to eastern Kentucky this Friday to take on the Generals of Jackson County.

Bulldog quarterback Noah Pruitt put the team on his shoulders in the second half to lead us to the big victory. Noah finished the night with 191 yards passing with a 10 of 17 attempts game and 196 yards rushing.

The Bulldog quarterback ended up with one touchdown completion on the night, and four touchdowns by rushing on the night, as well as four successful two-point conversions for a 32 point game.

Also scoring was Chase Stines and Parker Tallent with one touchdown each.

The Bulldogs will finish out this 2018 campaign this Friday night over in Jackson County as they attempt to put the cap on our best season ever – a feat this squad has already secured with this 8-1 record, but of course would like to take to a 9-1 mark.

Jackson County has had a rough year on the gridiron, which makes them a very dangerous team to be traveling to.

The Generals will finish out their season Friday night as well when they play host to us with a 1-8 record.

Congrats to Noah (and Jon Allen)

By the way, congrats are certainly in order to Bulldog quarterback Noah Pruitt, who was selected as the Kentucky.com Player of the Week.

Noah blanked the competition in the popular voting honor hosted by Lexington Herald-Leader sportswriter Josh Moore. Pruitt finished the week with 7,327 votes while the next closest player, Reed Lanter or Boyle County, had 3,872 votes.

Noah becomes the second Bulldog to earn the honor, joining teammate Jon Allen Cross, who also earned the title a few weeks ago. – Mea culpa, my note about Jon Allen somehow got lost in the shuffle that I call my desk, and I failed to congratulate him when he earned the honor, so better late than never – congrats to John Allen Cross for his Player of the Week accomplishment as well.

I’ve had some interactions with both of these young men off of the field, and I have to say their parents certainly need to be proud of the way these two guys present themselves.
