TCHS Spring Football Game- Red 56, White 20- The Bulldogs throw, catch, run and kick for 76

Spring football games can be a big bore. The offense is vanilla allowing the defense to dominate. The Toombs County Bulldogs first spring game under new head coach was just the opposite of that as the Red and the White teams combined to score 76 points. The Red ruled the scrimmage 56-20. slideshow
