Dogs ready to put the recent past behind them
CHASE TRUESDALE WILL BE Camdens biggest receiving target. The junior tight end/wide out is the teams tallest player, standing 6-foot-6 and weighing 210 pounds.
Redemption, thy name is the 2013 edition of the Camden Bulldogs’ football team.Following a second consecutive 2-8 season --- which was later adjusted to 3-7 following a loss to Lower Richland being reversed due to playing an ineligible player ---, the Bulldogs worked overtime in the off-season in the hope of righting a pair of wrongs.Now in the 16th season at the helm of his high school alma mater, CHS head coach Jimmy Neal makes no bones about the past two seasons not being a whole lot of fun. His players and coaching staff knew that as well and Neal said he has seen a difference in the weight room and on the practice field. Now, all parties are anxiously awaiting the results which kick off when Cheraw comes to town for Friday’s season opener at historic Zemp Stadium.“We’ve never had a team which has put as much time as this one has put into it at Camden,” said Neal, who has a 115-64 career record on the Bulldog sidelines.
