The Hazard Bulldogs are anticipating a great season this year as team leader and senior quarterback Bailey Blair will return to the field.
Blair led the team with nearly 1,953 yards passing and 15 touchdowns, while completing 149 of 239 pass attempts. He also led the team in rushing with 707 yards rushing and 11 TDs on 127 carries.
“It’s bittersweet. I feel pretty confident going into this season, though,” said Blair. “I feel like if we can get everybody out working hard, which we are already doing, we could potentially make a run.”
The Bulldogs will be looking for Blair to lead this season with his experience on the field and skills.
Blair said one of the things that will be most exciting, though, is the chance to play with the other seniors on the team.
“All these seniors have played together since we were eight or nine years old and I think teams should look out for us,” said Blair.
Hazard will open the season August 24 at Harlan County at 7:30 p.m.
