As a former defensive coordinator, Wylie coach Clay Martin has a warm place in his heart for well-played defense. Through the first two games of this season, he’s seen a lot of it.
Over their last six quarters, the Bulldogs have allowed just a single touchdown, twice forcing fumbles inside the 10 to thwart opponents’ scoring chances.
That level of defensive dominance has been crucial in Wylie’s 2-0 start, which saw the Bulldogs hold off a second-half rally at Brownwood before shutting out Lubbock Monterey on the road. With Lubbock Cooper coming to Hugh Sandifer Stadium this week, the Wylie defense is set for its biggest test of the young season, but Martin is thrilled with what he’s seen from that unit so far and excited to see how the Bulldogs attack the next challenge put in front of them.
