Coach Greg Dickenson said “The game went just like we planned. Both teams went on runs to make the game exciting. Montevallo’s defense continued to force Bibb County to turn the ball over. If we continue to play hard defense then these boys should have a chance to go all the way. #saynomo”  

Coach Tena Niven states, “ I’m very proud of how the boys held their ground. It’s very difficult to play down there especially on their senior night.” 

All in all the Dawgs had a great game against the Choctaws last night!
