Most Spring Games- especially on the college level- are challenging to watch because nobody wants to show any thing on offense. However, that is not the way the Toombs County Bulldogs played their Spring Game in the Coastal Empire against Johnson.
The Bulldogs on offense showed multiple formations and plenty of offensive weapons under new offensive coordinator Daniel Dorsey as they piled up 447 yards of total offense in a 45-0 win in Morris Stadium.
Quarterback Trey Cloud was the trigger man completing 12-of-19 passes for 324 yards. He threw for three TD’s and scored twice. Cloud ran for 45 yards on 12 carries to lead the Dawgs in rushing. Ten different Bulldogs caught at least one pass. Chandler Lynn snagged three passes for 38-yards. D.J. Mincey had two for a whopping total of 144 yards and Tyler Smith two for 81 yards.
On defense the Bulldogs not only shutout Johnson, but they held the Atom Smashers to only 80 yards of total offense- 55 on the ground and 25 in the air. Caleb Hartley led the Bulldogs with tackles with six.
Toombs opened the scoring with 9:09 to play in the second quarter on a 36-yard pass from Cloud to Drekari Jones. The tall basketball player is playing football for the first time.
Cloud scored the second touchdown with 3:16 left in the half on a short run to give TCHS a 14-0 lead. With 53 seconds left Mincey caught a short pass from Cloud and ran down the Bulldog sideline and into the end zone for a 73-yard TD to lift the Bulldogs to a 28-0 lead at half.
Julio Almanza opened the second half scoring kicking a 32-yard field goal with 6:01 to play in the third quarter giving TCHS a 31-0 lead.
A 74-yard Cloud touchdown pass to Smith with 5:37 to play in the fourth quarter made it 38-0 Bulldogs and then with 1:09 to play in the game Kevyn Rosales (who is a kicker) caught a 27-yard touchdown pass.
