Come visit the Scott Bulldogs football team at our new stadium, with our brand new field and turf.
We now have stands for our fans. Come down and take a seat and watch the Bulldogs play.
The Scott High School football team, coached by Michael Daniels, has improved greatly this season. The Bulldogs believe they are going all the way this year. They have new attitudes and are focusing on success.
The Bulldogs won their home opener against the Start Spartans 18-13 last week. It was a great game with the defense holding strong. Scoring for the Bulldogs were Omar Johnson, a wide receiver, and Kevin Banks, a running back with a verbal commitment to the University of Toledo Rockets.
Scott, for the first time in years, has a 5-1 season record so far defeating Start, Marion-Harding, Fostoria, Lima-Perry, and Dayton-Jefferson.
“We’re playing team football, offense and defense. Everything we do we want to do 110 percent — maximum effort,” Coach Daniels told LifeOfTheDogs.com.
Daniels, 34, a special education teacher, has coached the Scott Bulldogs the past six years. Previously, he was an assistant football coach at the former Libbey High School nine years.
What’s it mean for team that Scott now has its own football field?
“It’s just building confidence. The kids are excited to be able to walk out of their own locker room onto their own field,” Coach Daniels said.
Winning isn’t the only important goal for the Bulldogs. The football team strives for success both on and off the field. Academics are important too. Players try to keep a grade point average of a 3.0 for the entire team.
It takes a group effort to make a team successful.
Coach Daniels is the head coach, but he is not the only coach on the field. Coach A. Brown, Coach Duhart, Coach Johnson, Coach J. Brown, Coach Grey, and Coach Weaver all assist.
Some of the star players for the team are Kevin Banks, DQ (Dakarai Adams-Williams), Glenn Joyce, Sean (Sean Jackson), and Big Jay (Jay Wells).
They wouldn’t be nearly as successful, but for the other players who back them up each game. Every player plays an important role on the team.
