Over the past decade, the Stamford Bulldogs have built an identity around their explosive spread offenses. And during that time, they’ve been able to claim some of the Big Country’s most notable playmakers.
In quarterbacks Hagen Hutchinson, Bo Wimberly and Peyton Bevel, they’ve had state title winners and record-setters. And receivers Jessie Ramos, James Washington and Trace Edwards were all household names for what they did at SHS and, in the case of the first two, beyond.
But after a procession of skill position talent that would make many larger schools envious, coach Ronnie Casey finds himself in a unique situation this season. Gone are the identifiable names fans have come to know by their prodigious and consistent production, and in their place is a group of hungry, but unproven commodities.
While the Bulldogs’ new stable of skill players will be senior-led, it’s short on guys with extensive starting experience. But after waiting their turn behind older and more accomplished teammates, those players are eager to show what they’re capable of this fall.
