’17 Season Preview: Greenwood Bulldogs

The most consistent program in the state is probably not who folks would think of right off the bat. The Greenwood Bulldogs is the most consistent program in the state, and coach Rick Jones has built another solid football team. The Bulldogs finished as the 6-A state runner’s up last season, so unfinished business is something that must be on the Bulldogs’ minds as the season draws closer.

Greenwood’s offense does not have a shortage of weapons and they are an experienced group. The Bulldogs have seven starters returning on the offensive side of the ball. For a player to watch on the offensive side of the ball, fans should look no further than quarterback Connor Noland. Noland passed for over 2,000 yards last season and is an Arkansas Razorbacks commit at the quarterback position. The Bulldogs’ offense is not going to have a problem lighting up the scoreboards this season.

The Bulldogs’ defense may be just as impressive on the defensive side of the ball. Greenwood has six starters returning on the defensive side of the ball. The player for Bulldogs’ fans to keep an eye out for on the defensive side of the ball is defensive tackle John Womack. Womack racked up over 100 tackles last season and will likely be a player that can earn some scholarship offers this season. The Bulldogs were an aggressive, suffocating defense last season and I would be shocked if they are not this season.

The Bulldogs should win the 6-A West conference championship this season, if they can avoid injuries. I would be very surprised if the Bulldogs do not wind up in Little Rock for the state championship, and I would say they are likely the favorites to win the 6-A State Championship
