The Clinton County Football team finished its season Friday night as the Bulldogs traveled to Louisville, KY to take on Christian Academy of Louisville.

The Bulldogs ended its season with a 47-0 loss in the first round of the 2A Russell Athletics/ KHSAA Gridiron Bowl and moved to 0-11 on the season.

The Bulldogs finished the season with 13 players, one of those 13 being lone senior Rocco Moran. Moran was voted Star Character Athlete of the week for the final week of the 2012 season.

“Christian Academy is probably one of the best teams we’ve played all year and they have a whole lot of class,” Head Coach Jamie Miller said. “I talked to the coach before the game and he was true to his word. They started subbing after they got a pretty good lead. We moved the ball pretty decent against their starters in the first quarter. We had some good drives, but we would have a penalty that would back us up.”

Miller said his team has a lot of work to do in order to play a competitive game against a team like CAL.

“I don’t doubt their effort, but they are just a different caliber team,” Miller said.

Miller is not wasting any time to get ready for next season. He had his returning players in the weight room Monday in order to get stronger before next fall.

“We are hitting the weights on a volunteer basis until January. The first week back to school, we will start full time, four days a week,” Miller said. “We’ve got to live in the weight room so we can get stronger and compete with teams who do live in the weight room. In the past we’ve had about 50 percent attendance in the weight room. We can’t have that if we want to be successful.”
