As Leroy Ryals takes his team into Region 1-AA play for the first time Friday, the Thomasville High coach is certain of one thing — it’s going to be tough.
“Well, this region is tough,” Ryals said as the 2-2 Bulldogs host No. 10 Cook at 8 p.m. Friday at Veterans Memorial Stadium.
The Hornets are part of that difficult road the Bulldogs will face in the region. Cook, which enters 2-1, is likely to have increased firepower Friday too.
After suffering a knee injury during spring drills, senior running back Grant Wilson is expected to make his season debut against Thomasville. Wilson rushed for more than 800 yards last season and he now joins a team that already caught Ryals’ attention.
