The football season has a common thread with bowling as far as Baytown Christian Academy is concerned.
The Bulldogs set them up and knock them down.
BCA has yet to be challenged early on, jumping out to a 2-0 start. Each game has ended via mercy-rule. Defensively, the Bulldogs have held teams scoreless and to a total of negative 13 yards of offense.
Next up is Conroe Covenant on the road. Conroe is 1-1 on the season and coming off a 50-0 demolition of Bellville Faith. The team was hit hard by graduation and has a lot of young players filling the ranks.
“They graduated their offense and defense,” BCA head coach Jeromey Anderson said. “We saw them at the Bryan-Allen Classic and they are a scrappy team. We are not going to take them lightly. “
Anderson said Conroe is not that big and works out of the spread. They have a small running back that is pretty shifty. Defensively, they work out of the 4-2.
“Most of them go play both ways,” Anderson said. “They are not very deep and can get tired. That is what happened last week. Brazosport came out and gave their best shot in the first quarter and wore down.”
The Bulldogs remain healthy going into this week’s contest and plan on developing their depth further.
“We will try to get some different looks in the backfield and give some kids playing time,” Anderson said.
Defensively, the team plans to extend off what it is doing. Anderson said the coaching staff is pretty happy with the early season results.
“We are so quick and fast,” he said. “We can play a 2-3-1 and let our safety handle everything deep. We are so quick getting to the passer they can’t throw the ball deep.”
Conroe Covenant is located at 4503 Interstate 45 N. in Conroe.
