CLYDE — The 2021 season will be one of transition for the Clyde football team. With a new coach and just nine lettermen returning from last year’s 4-7 squad, a young Bulldogs team will have to adjust to a number of new realities this fall.
With a new culture and new schemes under former Cooper offensive coordinator Danny Dudgeon, Clyde will operate differently both on and off the field. And with first-year starters occupying six spots on offense and four on defense, the Bulldogs will make those changes with a relatively inexperienced roster.
But despite the challenges that lie ahead for this CHS squad, Dudgeon is confident in his club’s willingness and ability to compete. And from what he’s seen so far, the first-time head coach can find no reason to lower the expectations for a program that has reached the postseason in eight of the past 10 seasons.
