Hard-hitting Coahoma leaves impression

August 19, 2011

The Coahoma Bulldogs seemed to get off to a slow start in Thursday night’s scrimmage against Clyde. Understandable, considering the size of the visiting team.

Even Coahoma Head Coach Trey Gardner commented on the size of the opposition.

“When we walked out, it looked like the field was slanted to one side,” Coach Gardner said.

But the size factor did not stay in play long as the hometown Bulldogs kept playing their own style of football; they hit everybody and they hit them hard.

Midway through the first varsity series, it became apparent that Coahoma could wear the team down by running the ball and pounding everyone in sight.

Quarterback Tanner Ruiz began to find receivers with frequency, once Coahoma’s running game, comprised mostly of quick sweeps, softened the defense and opened passing lanes.

Ruiz returns for his junior year as the reigning offensive MVP in district 2-2A. He, along with running back Sheigh Cravens, is going to be the driving force behind the Bulldogs this season as Coahoma pushes for another playoff run in 2011.

“We’re going to hit people,” Coach Gardner said. “That’s how we play the game and everyone is starting to see it.”
