Coach L.M. Guy talks Bulldog Football

New Toombs County High School football coach and athletic director L.M. Guy has been on the job for a month and on a school holiday he stopped by Y-101 Radio to talk about a variety of different subjects. Watch You Tube

Building a relationship with his player- Has allowed Guy to see who is consistent in the weight room. An average of 40 or 50 players have showed up after school for workouts and chalk talks. 

Spring Practice- There won't be a two week spring practice this year. Instead the Bulldogs will play an additional scrimmage game in the Pit against Bradwell Institute. They also will scrimmage ECI.

7-on-7- Each Tuesday night, begining June 10, the Bulldogs will play host to 7-on-7 passing in the Pit which will be open to the public with no admission charge.   

Success breeds success- Guy says he needs athletes from successful programs like wrestling, soccer and baseball to play football so the Bulldogs can play essentially two-platoon ball. Guy says he has been recruiting the halls looking for potential Bulldogs.

Daily Walk- There is a desire in the community for the program to be successful with a Christian emphasis and the Daily Walk wlll be a big part of this.

Dawgs offensive scheme- The option will be a part of the scheme. At Richmond Hill Guy ran a no-huddle fast paced offense like Oregon and Auburn in the college game. The final offensive look of the Bulldogs will depend on the personel available.

Bulldog practice- Will be fast paced with players moving around. For the first 45 minutes there will be music and the players will be going at it pretty good. There will be prayer requests. It will be physical. As the season goes on their will be more drill work, stressing fundamentals, instead of 11-on-11. Practice time will be 2 1/2 hours. 

Coaching staff- There will be some new faces on the sideline along with familar ones from last season.

Richmond Hill success- Guy says he took players, who alot of people didn't think could get it done, and through player development begin producing Division 1, Division 2 and Division 3 type athletes.   

The Flying T- The emblem of the Toombs County Bulldogs is not going away. However, there may be a new spin on the Flying-T. The Bulldogs will have new uniforms in 2014.  

Toombs County's New Region

Toombs County High School has been reclassified, by the GHSA, to Triple A (from Double A) and placed in Region 1, Sub-region A with Appling County, Brantley County, Dodge County, Pierce County and Tattnall County. Sub-region B consists of Beach, Islands, Jenkins, Johnson-Savannah, Savannah, Savannah Arts and Southeast Bulloch. All new regions will become official on January 14, 2014.  

Toombs County goes from being one of the largest Double A schools to being one of the smallest in Triple A with 831 students. Twenty-one Triple A schools have more than 1,000 students including two from the Bulldogs' new region (Pierce and Appling). Dawson tops AAA with 1,087 students.

TCHS has been in a AA region with all five of their new sub-region schools in the past. As for competition, four of the five schools had at least two of three teams (football, softball and baseball) make it to the state playoffs in their most recent seasons. Only Brantley County didn't make state competition in those three sports. All five of these former Double A's have played Triple A the past two school years.

The travel will be familar and also similar for the Toombs sports teams. In Region 2, Double A TCHS traveled an average of 51.3 miles to play a game. The long trip was to Benedictine (90 miles) and the shortest was to Vidalia (seven miles). In the new sub-region Toombs will travel an average of 52 miles to play a game. The long trip will be to Brantley County (84 miles) and the shortest trip will be to Tattnall County (22 miles). 

The Bulldogs moved from Single A to Double A beginning in the 1996-97 school year. Toombs County High School spent 18 consecutive years in Double A.
