Marlboro County Bulldogs
2012 Record: 8-4
Offense: 30.75 ppg (13th in Zone Nation)
Defense: 15.83 ppg (5th)
Dean Boyd has seen it all. It's great to hear him talk frankly about his team and their lack of elite prospects. Marlboro County has seen its fair share of major Division I prospects and I think coach Boyd is a great motivator. There are some great players on this team who have not gotten the press clippings of players like Newton, Zimmerman and Ayers. I'm anxious to see London Johnson get an entire season at quarterback and how he'll spread the ball around to weapons like Fred David and Raheem Ward. Defensively, I want to see Daryus Gillespie become a no-brainer for the All-Zone team. How does that happen? Making tackles for losses and setting the tone on the D-line. If the Bulldogs stay together and fight through the inevitable adversity that happens during a football season, they can be a dangerous team come November.
Worth a Watch
The biggest feather in Marlboro County's 2012 cap is easy to find. It was a 16-7 home win over 2A state champion Dillon, the Wildcats only blemish on the year. This year's rematch will be one of the best regular season games of the 2013 camaign. Watch last year's 16-7 Bulldogs win over the state champs HERE.
