“ It was an intense game for the Dogs.” States: Coach James Lucas, liked the way our team stayed together through the hard hitting, smack talking and intensity play of a playoff atmosphere. We knew that Dadeville would be ready for this renewal rivalry game. I liked the way we played all three phases of the game on Offense, Defense and Special Team. We will celebrate this victory for 24 hours and get back to work for Loachapoka Indian our next opponent. We asked that our community continue to support the Dogs this Friday night in Loachapoka @ 7pm.
