In addition to the change of head coach, it was also the first time many had seen the new solid matte blue helmets the Bulldogs will be sporting this season. Team captain and offensive lineman Troy Whitmer talks about that change and the inspiration behind it.
Fox also went into great detail on the team’s theme of ‘Never Enough.’ Quarterback Andy Rice and captain John Hugunin talk about what that theme means to them and to the team.
The media day was part of a busy first week for the Bulldogs that began with the team reporting on Tuesday and the first practice on Wednesday. The Bulldogs will participate in their third practice on Friday evening and continue and continue with single practices throughout the weekend leading up to the first two-a-day practice on Tuesday.
