Bulldog Head Coach Alan Short
“… We are grateful and humbled by the honor of being named KFCA district coach of the year. This award reflects our entire staff and team. I told anyone who would listen this fall, that our team was special.”
“…This award is voted on by opposing district coaches, so when your peers see the good things that are taking place in your program, it means a little more.”
“… Again, the way I look at this award is that it is a TEAM award, based on the accomplishments of our players and all of our coaches. It is nice to be recognized, but this award belongs to our entire staff of coaches, our players, and the entire Lawrence County Football Program, youth through high school. We are very thankful and look forward to the future.”
