7 points separate the Liberty County Bulldogs from an undefeated season. A 7-0 road loss at the hands of Panama City Bay high school in week 2, can hardly be considered a blemish when you consider the play of the Bulldogs this season. The Liberty County defense has played outstanding, allowing opponents an average of under 7 points per game. “(Our success), It’s accumulated from what we do year-round, not just the last few weeks. Our guys have continued to get better and our more experienced guys have started to figure things out.”, Liberty County head coach Grant Grantham stated.
Liberty County’s offense has left opponents figuring things out too.
The Bulldogs use a two-quarterback system that features QB #5 A. Marlow and #12 D. Deason both at the command of the”Georgia Tech style” triple-option. Their efforts have seen the Bulldogs post 2 wins where the team notched 35 points or more. In last weeks district win over Franklin County, the Seahawks experienced first hand the speed of Liberty County’s offense. Grantham stated, “We opened up our passing game and tried some things differently and it worked out for us…, We jumped out on them early and just took advantage of some miscues on their part and when we got out front that changed the game plan completely.”
On the defensive side of the ball Liberty County has frustrated opponents all season with a host of defenders that have made big plays all season long. Linebackers #41 E. Foran, #34 H. Armstrong and #2 T. Johnson have been a force to be reckoned with this year and DL #73 S. Williams adds to an already powerful group of linemen.
Up next for Liberty County is a road trip to face Vernon where the Bulldogs will look to continue their winning streak. “We’ll look to take advantage of whatever they’ll give us. The more we play the better our rhythm will get.”, said Grantham.
