Football season has arrived!

August 20, 2004

Thomasville - At Thomasville high school, students bleed red, and gold. The colors can be seen everywhere, on the walls, hanging from the ceiling and worn with pride.

"Beware 'cause the dogs bite," says Junior Haley Strickland. And according to these students, the dogs are definitely going to win tonight's big game.

William Inman says the Bulldogs will beat the Jackets, "Pretty bad, actually probably not too bad, but they're gonna lose."

Across town, with a little more confidence, students say there's no question, the Jackets will sting. John Carter Skeen says, "You know Thomasville, they don't know what they're talking about. They're talking trash, you know. Hopefully when the final minutes ring out, we'll look at the scoreboard and it will be Central, the blue and gold."

But regardless of who wins tonight, both schools agree, you don't want to miss this match-up. "Can't wait for tonight. It's going to be a good turnout I think, it's going to be a good game," says Derek Milton.

Certainly a game that will take a bite out of the competition or a put a sting on their season when one of these teams dances their way to victory.

The game begins at 8PM at Veteran's Stadium, the home of the bulldogs. Robert Hydrick will have the results of the game Friday night during the Locker Room report.
