Football is just around the corner, and we at BigCountryPreps.com are committed to bringing you the information you need to prepare for your favorite team’s season.
We’ll be releasing our Big Country Preps Preseason Football Preview, the most comprehensive look at the upcoming Big Country football season anywhere, on Wednesday, Aug. 16. But you won’t have to wait until then to sate your gridiron appetite.
Leading up to the first day of fall football practice on July 31, we’ll be spotlighting each 11-man team in the area and posing some of the key questions they’ll face in 2023 as part of our annual “Countdown to Two-a-Days” series.
We continue in Class 2A Division I with the Stamford Bulldogs. On Tuesday we will take a look at the Winters Blizzards, followed by the Bangs Dragons on Wednesday.
LAST YEAR’S RECORD
- 8-3 overall, 4-2 in District 4-2A Division I
ONE KEY STAT
- The Bulldogs snapped a stretch of two consecutive losing seasons with last year’s 8-3 campaign, outscoring their opponents 347-160 in the process.
TWO NAMES TO KNOW
- Junior RB/LB Kaston Vega (Rushed for 887 yards and 15 touchdowns and received for 486 yards and 6 TDs in 2022)
- Junior QB Christian Duran (Passed for 1,525 yards and 18 touchdowns and rushed for 523 yards and 8 TDs in 2022)
THREE BURNING QUESTIONS
- What kind of impact will coach Wayne Hutchinson have in his return and how quickly can the Bulldogs absorb his schemes?
- With 18 of 27 lettermen back from last year’s team, can Stamford take advantage of its experience?
- What did last year’s success do for the confidence, belief and mentality of SHS’ returning players?
