Chapel Hill excited for challenge of tough district
CHAPEL HILL, TX (KLTV) -
Our two-a-days tour continues with Chapel Hill. The Bulldogs are coming off a nine win season where they were a regional finalist.
With only three returning starters on offense and defense, preseason practices are crucial for Chapel Hill to fill the holes left by graduating seniors. Quarterback Konnor Hitchcock is taking reps with the first team and its his job right now to replace Andrew Black.
Konnor's best friend will be wide receiver and playmaker Jeffery Minor. The Bulldogs know its going to take their best to compete in a stacked district that includes Carthage, Kilgore, and Palestine.
"My guys love to see guys like that on the schedule," running back/linebacker Delenis Garrett said. "It definitely makes them go harder and makes us work a lot harder because the prize is bigger at the end."
Lineman Sonny Russell added, "We are very enthusiastic. We had our boot camp and we have all made up this thing called brotherhood. We have really been connecting together and learning the plays together and really communicating about it." Minor finished by saying, "It's senior time, no plays off. Everybody is trying to look up to me so i just have to shine."
