Rebuilding year for Sulphur football
SULPHUR, Okla. (KTEN) - It's a rebuilding year for the Sulphur Bulldogs as the team lost most of their starters, but they say hello to new senior quarterback Cache Barrett who came from Lindsey, Oklahoma and is already fitting right into place.
"I feel like I got good chemistry with my wide receivers. I feel like we've thrown a lot this summer individual stuff on our own time and stuff like that," said Barrett. "I feel like my lineman are going to give me a great chance to spread the ball around the field."
The team went 8-4 last season losing in the second round of the playoffs, and head coach Jim Dixon is ready to see those young guys step up this season.
"We've got about three or four starters back on offense and about three or four back on defense. The ones we got back are good players, but we got to have some pups come through," said Dixon.
We're already pretty familiar with class 3A district 2, plenty of talented Texoma teams in the mix along with new power houses that join the schedule. However, Sulphur has more than just a tough district schedule ahead, they also get ready to face one of our very own Texas teams on September 16th.
"Really excited to play Whitesboro. I've never played a team outside of Oklahoma before, so that'll be exciting," said Barrett.
"They're good, and they got a real good bunch coming back, so they'll be tough," said Dixon.
Whitesboro isn't the only team they have to worry about.
"We open up with the number one team in class 2A, then we play Davis. Our district has got out of the eight teams, six of them are good," said Dixon.
"We just have to keep working hard. It's going to be a really hard schedule, but if we keep our heads up and work hard I bet on us to win it," said senior right tackle Quince Borders.
