MILLEDGEVILLE - The GMC Bulldogs are out to a blazing start in NJCAA action.
Coach Bert Williams and his squad are fresh off a big road victory over Snow College out of Utah that have them at 2-0 heading into their first home game of the year. Williams says along with 30 returning upper classmen, several local talents are helping the red & black have success. Players like Baldwin's Dante Beckham, Twigg's Perfect Robinson and GMC Preps Taylor Payne to name a few. And he thinks this group can only get better.
"Our guys have played hard on offense, defense and special teams" says Williams. "They've played together and believed in each other. I think that's the best thing we've done. From an execution point, we're probably about a C so far, so we have room for improvement in all phases of what we're doing, which is really kind of a good thing. We are able to win by not playing our best because we're playing so hard and together and have made fewer mistakes than our opponents. But as the schedule goes forward, it doesn't get any easier. We've got to elevate our execution to a higher level. I believe we can get there with a bit more time in practice and as we take each step in the season."
One side note to pass along, former Central Charger and Georgia Bulldog Tony Gilbert has also joined the coaching staff in Milledgeville to help on defense.
GMC hosts Atlanta Sports Academy this Saturday at home starting a 1pm.
