KINSTON, Ala. (WDHN) — The Kinston Bulldogs are coming off of a disappointing 2-7 season.
The team hasn’t made the playoffs since 2015, but in his last two seasons as head coach Rudy Free and his staff have tried to instill a strong work ethic at Kinston.
Twenty total seniors and juniors make for a promising amount of experience.
This summer the Bulldogs have improved in the weight room and on their passing game and if they can limit penalties and turnovers they might just turn this Kinston program around.
“We’re at a point now where we’ve got to start competing and winning some games people don’t think we should win,” Free said. “I think that’s the key is getting our guys confident and knowing that they can compete with everybody on our schedule and win those games that people don’t think we can. I think this is the year to do that.”
The Bulldogs host the Houston Academy Raiders in their season opener on Friday.
