“We had worked on one-handed catches all spring practice,” McGriff said. “That was my time to show everyone what we’ve been working on.”
Bowdry answered with his 30-yard touchdown, then Harris sealed fate with the near pick-six.
Saturday’s spring game was conducted in a draft format, with Ryals dividing quarterbacks and centers, then letting assistants select rosters from there.
The second-year coach said he was pleased overall by Thomasville’s production this spring, but still has concerns as the team heads into a one-month hiatus before summer workouts.
“We were very competitive – almost too competitive,” Ryals said in reference of a few scuffles during the game. “Things kind of got heated a little bit. You’ve just got to know how to handle it.
“We saw what we liked and we saw what we needed to work on, too.”
The Bulldogs won’t resume football duties until June 2, when the team reports for conditioning. Ryals has slated roughly 21 sessions, of which players will be required to attend at least 85 percent.
