Red River Bulldogs are looking forward to their first full game of the season on Friday night. Last week they won a Jamboree game against Loyola. Final score was 24-15.
New head football coach Jeff Harper termed the first half faulty. “The second half came out different,” Harper said, “They played faster, not as tentative.”
Harper said, “It was the first live action the players had seen. We missed the inner-squad game and the Bossier scrimmage, so the boys saw no live reps before meeting Loyola.” Some of the factors mentioned, “Young guys on defense with blown assignments, blown coverages, or just totally missed the play.”
“The second half was much better,” said Harper as he noted that the Bulldogs had two touchdowns called back by penalties, “That cost us 14 points.”
What’s coming up Friday? Harper told the Journal, “We’re headed to Haughton Friday night. They are a 5-A team, and I don’t feel they will take us lightly. They lost their jamboree game, so they will play us like we are a district team.” He added, “There are things we can do if we execute our offense. I think we can beat them.”
