The Winder-Barrow Bulldoggs football program has more than a heartbeat, it has life and continues to pick up steam under second-year head coach Heath Webb. Webb and his Bulldoggs (3-3; 3-2) travel to region foe Cedar Shoals (1-5; 1-4) tonight looking to stay in the playoff hunt in region 8-5A. Winder-Barrow is seeking to make the playoffs in back-to-back season for the first time since the 1992 and 1993 seasons.
The “double G” Bulldoggs headliner is running back CC Green. Green has missed the last two games due to injury and his status for tonight is basically a game time decision. Green leads Winder-Barrow in rushing with 678 yards and five touchdowns in three and-a-half games. With Green being out the Bulldoggs have turned to quarterback Brock Landis to pick up the slack. The mobile Landis has passed for over 300 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for five touchdowns since getting the majority of the action in victories over Salem and Flowery Branch.
Cedar Shoals ended their longest losing streak in school history with a region win over Heritage-Conyers earlier this month. The Jaguars are a heavy sophomore and junior-laden team that will continue to lean on athletes Ryan Huff and Greg Smith. Running back Jerphari Colbert and defensive end/tight end Stavion Stevenson have also been impact players for the Jaguars this season.
