As the new school year sets to begin, so does the new football season. The Hazard Bulldogs will continue to have the same goal as the previous years, to advance to the state Class A football title game.


The Bulldogs lost a large group of talented players to graduation, with most of it coming off the defensive side of the ball. However, many of those players also contributed on the offensive side of the ball as well.


With 11 seniors leaving openings in the lineup, preseason practice will be a made scramble to fill those spots. Offensively, the Bulldogs should be in good shape as they return the bulk of their scoring as Brandon Jones returns for his senior season. They will also be returning their quarterback, Tanner Morgan for only his sophomore season.


Hazard went 11-2 last season, falling out of the playoffs in the third round with a loss to Williamsburg. The Bulldogs will play pretty much the same schedule this season, hoping to move on to the state finals.
