Browning, FHS QB, breaks leg; Dawgs finish spring vs. Powell

Perhaps Bearden’s quarterbacking concerns have been put to rest for 2009.

As the Bulldogs wrapped up its 10 days of spring practice with a Tuesday, May 11, home scrimmage versus Powell, BHS head coach Brad Taylor said “Kyle Riemer did a good job at quarterback. ... He could have probably made a few more plays with his feet if we’d let him. I think he’s going to be a good addition back there. Very athletic. Good, strong arm.”

On the receiving end versus PHS, “Davis Tull did real well ... caught a touchdown pass,” Taylor said. “And did a real nice job at defensive end, got a lot of pressure on their quarterback.”

Confident of his defense’s ability — despite depth concerns in the line — “I think we feel pretty good about our linebacking position,” Taylor said of Peyton Landers and Drew Williamson. “I think we’ve got good depth at linebacker,” adding that Landers, Williamson and Tull “probably had the best spring” of all defenders. Max Guthe was praised for his work at linebacker.

Because of a bone bruise, stantout rising junior tailback Devrin Young did not participate. “C.J. Terry is hopefully going to help us out at tailback as well.” Landers, Trey Shuler and Brett Parisi all saw time at fullback. Parisi also played defensive end.

On the offensive line, “Bradley Ternes returns at center, Greg Hopkins at guard and Edward Pena at tackle.” Mark Goultry should see extensive time. “Offensive line and defensive tackle are where we’d like to have some more depth.”

Transfer Cisco Carter, handling kickoffs, also saw time at free safety and “had a pretty good spring.”

Health-wise, “We came away pretty healthy,” Taylor said.
