Dogs expect to rebound after loss against Ozona

Brady’s Bulldogs will try to get back on track in Sonora Friday night when they take on the 0-2 Broncos. The Dogs, 1-1 on the young season, will be attempting to rebound after dropping a 32- 15 decision to Ozona here last Friday night. Sonora lost its first two games, 34-14 to Alpine in the season opener, and 34-16 against Ingram Tom Moore last week. The Broncos, under head coach Jason Herring, are going through a rebuilding year in 2003 after going 5-5 last season. They lost heavily to graduation, returning only three offensive and three defensive starters. “Sonora is a big football team,” Brady head coach Todd Bandy said Wednesday. “But, they are not very quick.” Bandy said he hopes his charges will be able to take advantage of their problems. “Scotty Moore, a 6-1, 185-pound quarterback is their main man. He’s the one we must worry about. When he’s under center, we can more than likely expect him to carry the ball,” the coach said. Moore is similar to Ozona’s running back Brad Mayfield, he said. “And when their other QB, Clint Cearley, is in at the helm, we will look for him to put the ball in the air.” The big man in the Sonora line is offensive tackle and defensive nose guard, Tom Valliant, who goes 6-7, 250 pounds. “He’s so tall that he can just reach over the center and grab the ball carrier,” Bandy said. The Bulldogs have had “good” practices this week in preparation for Sonora where the Dogs hope to go up 2-1 in the record department. “The kids have responded well to their loss last Friday. I fully believe that we’ll be ready to take on the Broncos,” Bandy said. Brady’s attitude, according to the coach, is to “do what’s right, and keep on doing it.” That is their mindset entering the ball game. Kickoff in Sonora tonight is at 7:30 p.m.
