Central High,Empire hoping to build off last season's success
After a winless 2016 campaign, Empire made the move down to 8-man football last year, finished 6-5 and made the playoffs. The Bulldogs, now in District B-4, even got to host a playoff game after finishing runner-up in B-5.
Even with the move down to 8-man, it's still a remarkable turnaround for the Bulldogs and head coach Colby Spears.
This year, Empire has an excellent chance to win the district title in a rather weak district that is B-4.
