TAZEWELL (WVVA) - Last year the Tazewell Bulldogs began turning their football program around, recording their first wins in years and making an improbable playoff appearance. Now, the team is back and hungry for more.
Youth is definitely served on this team with only three seniors returning -- but the team says that won't stop them from playing with a sense of urgency.
"You're only guaranteed 40 Friday nights in your high school career and every one of them is special," said senior fullback Carter Rasnick. "You got to try and win each one in a different way."
The Bulldogs go on the road week one, matching up against Virginia HHigh in Bristol. Players say they are eager to finally hit someone wearing a different-colored jersey.
"Knowing that we've already put all that work in, we're ready to go, we're excited to go and see how we're going to do against someone else instead of our own team," Rasnick said.
