OUTLOOK

Last year’s D-4 quarterfinalist team had a lot of senior difference makers. The good news is the Bulldogs return a lot of beef on the offensive and defensive lines.

A good amount of young players will see time and get to fight for a league championship in 2019. Playing in the Mojave River League means the playoffs are definitely in play for the Bulldogs despite losing so many seniors.
