There’s a difference between being young and being untested.
On paper, first-year Clyde coach Scott Campbell has a junior-laden team, likely a year away from hitting its peak. But the club is far from inexperienced.
A year ago under former coach Rocky Smart, the Bulldogs reached the playoffs and finished 6-5 despite starting multiple sophomores on both sides of the ball.
This year, Campbell, the former head coach at Luling, inherits an enormous junior class of 18 players — roughly half of whom were in starting varsity roles last year.
