Bulldogs depth chart is a long list of talent


Brad Gilbert - bgilbert@civitasmedia.com



This looks painful. Baylor Feller(43) and Mikey Abuan(30) get this Vernon Lion ballcarrier to the turf during last year’s Altus vs. Vernon game. Tomorrow is the season opener at Vernon. The game will begin at 7:30 p.m. There is a pep rally scheduled for tomorrow at the AHS auditorium shortly after 2 p.m. I’m certain this will be a noisy atmosphere. GO BULLDOGS !!


The depth chart for the season opener at Vernon tomorrow night is listed below.

This is a long list of talented kids. Coaches in all sports know that competition for starting positions or playing time makes each player better. If you have individuals that have a position because it’s given, then you end of with a lax player with a sense of entitlement. Each position on this Altus team has been earned through hardwork, and ultimately a trust that develops within a coaching staff towards each player. It’s a trust that instills confidence. The coach knows how the player will react in certain situations, or what physical attributes or limitations a player may have.

Many hours of weightlifting, conditioning and film study, combined with a player’s attitude, work ethic and game awareness have shaped this list. As far as tomorrow night’s contest, these are the players who will battle it out on the field against Vernon. Going forward in the season, the list is subject to change. GO BULLDOGS !!
