COAHOMA â€” Coahoma has always been home for head coach Trey Gardner. When the alumnae was hired in June, he let it be known that not much had changed.
â€śSomebody when they first hired me said, 'Welcome to being a Bulldog,'â€ť he said. â€śI told them, 'I've been a Bulldog for a very, very long time.' I never quit being a Bulldog.â€ť
With that proclamation in mind, it's only fitting Gardner is the coach to get the Bulldogs back in the playoffs after two consecutive 5-5 seasons.
Through Gardner and a handful of standout players, the Bulldogs have had somewhat of a storybook season. First-time head coach, brand new offense and district may not automatically add up to a playoff spot.
However, that's exactly what happened after a 41-7 win over Anson last week. The Bulldogs are back in the playoffs and have a shot at a share of the District 2-2A Division II title next week at home against Idalou.View more articles in:
