The Bulldogs took on the Burkeville Mustangs on Friday, November 8 for the last game of the 2019 football season. The Dogs came out strong and scored over 30 points in the first quarter.
The jumbo package played a crucial role in the Dogs’ victory. Senior Wesley Dobbins and Senior Kaleb Powers each scored a touchdown during the game. Sophomore Jermi Shamblin and Sophomore Jayden Ferguson both had touchdowns. Senior Gerrick Vrooman had many receiving yards during the game.
The Bulldogs have grown tremendously throughout the season and have truly learned what mental toughness is. There is a lot of potential for the next Bulldogs football season.
The Colmesneil Lady Dogs traveled to Warren on Tuesday, Nov. 5 to take on West Hardin for Bi-District. Sadly, the Lady Dogs’ season came to an end in three games.

The Lady Dogs have grown as a team since two-a-days began and found the true meaning of leaving it all on the court.
