Former Toombs County Bulldog football players Nathan Belch and Jimmy Edwards are getting a lot of playing time and they are making big plays for the St. Andrews Knights in that North Carolina school’s first year of collegiate football.

In a 38-20 home loss to Faulkner University (Montgomery, Alabama) Edwards started at linebacker and Belch entered the game as a safety and scored the Knight’s first touchdown. Belch read the quarterback, jumped up in the air and intercepted his pass and then ran down the sideline for six.
