The Altus Bulldog football team heads to Chickasha tomorrow for a Thursday night district match-up. The game will begin at 7 p.m.
The Bulldogs made some noise all across the state of Oklahoma last Friday in their district win over Del City, 49-33.
After two records fell to running back Taven Birdow last Friday, the Bulldogs can expect one of those to be broken every time Taven gets the ball.
However, there are other records that are within reach of this team. Going back to last Friday, the all-time team rushing record for a single game was set in 1995 against… yep … Chickasha. The Bulldogs ran for 515 yards that day. Last Friday’s Del City game the Bulldogs had 484 yards on the ground. It would have been celebrated even more if that team record would have fallen.
The Bulldogs can still break the record for fewest fumbles lost (6) in a season set back in 1993. Jayden Benway is certainly within reach of the career interception by an Altus defensive back (20). Jayden has 16 going into tomorrow night’s game.
Look for more records to be set. This bunch is looking to claim and “The Bulldogs of the Week” in tomorrow’s game day edition.
