Durand Preview 8/22/12

Durand, Illinois-The Bulldogs finally got back into the playoffs last season for the first time since 2004. Now they want to do it again.

The Indians return seven starters on offense and five on defense from last year's 6-4 team. Key returners include runningback Jake Szymanski, Peter Basile, Zach Burdick and Justin Lindsay.

The Bulldogs must replace standout runningback Mark Vormezeele who rushed for a school record 1,414 yards and 14 touchdowns last season.  They also lost All-State linebacker Tyler Sharp.

The Bulldogs will play a run-oriented Ace formation offense this season and a 5-3 defense geared to stop the run.

Head Coach Matt Kinney is back for his sixth season. He says this group of kids "compliments each other well."

The Bulldogs will open their season at Stockton August 24th.
