One of the MSHAA officials who refereed the Bulldogs’ game at Pierce City on Oct. 11 was so impressed with the team that he wrote a complimentary report and sent it through official channels.

Bulldog Head Football Coach Harv Welch shared the official report with the Sun:

Just wanted the school to know what Great kids they have playing football for them this year. Every player was very respectful. Everything was yes sir and no sir. All the players played very hard and not one time were tempers lost. It was a great game to call because of the kids. As an official, I know the way players act is because of the way they are coached. The coaches are a class act. The coaches worked very hard at coaching and let us do our job without question. ElDo should be very proud of their football program. I know I am. Jim Hogelin, member of the Dave Keeton crew.
