Type of offense: Option
Type of defense: Base 50
2009 outlook: With 8 starters returning on both sides of the ball Thomasville has a chance to be competitive in a tough region 1AA. Replacing 3 yr starting center Hank Summitt will be a battle. Also, Replacing 3 yr. starter at RB/LB Tyrone Williams will be difficult. Along with replacing 2 year starters Cedric Brown OG, Dakari Mitchell, and Jamarcez Carr at the corners and Xavier Greene at WR. Competition for starting positions will be very competitive between incumbents and a host of young players vying for playing time. If they can stay healthy they will have a chance to compete for a one of the 4 playoff spots in the region.

Thomasville High football coach Richie Marsh has led the Bulldogs to the playoffs for 3 straight seasons.
Marsh is proud of the success but says every season is somewhat disappointing unless you win a state championship.
The Bulldogs went 6-1 in region play last year before falling in the second round of the playoffs.
The Bulldogs season ended with a 21-14 loss to Dublin and Coach Marsh says his players haven't forgotten about that game.
The Bulldogs have eight returning starters on both sides of the football who are looking to make a run for the AA state title.
Richie Marsh said. "The last few years we've never finished where we want to. You never will unless you win it all but we were kind of left with a bad taste in our mouths after the playoffs last year and the kids kind of worked hard."
