Bulldogs Fall Short


The Tracy High School football team had an amazing regular season record with a plethora of wins along the way.

The team advanced to the first round of playoffs facing the same Downey squad the Bulldogs defeated 43-13  in the regular season. Although Tracy had an initial win against Downey, the Knights were able to make some adjustments from earlier in the season, defeating Tracy 27-10.

The first half saw multiple turnovers from the Bulldogs, but Tracy was able to keep the game close going into the second half, only being down 13-10 to Downey.

Coach Jeff Pribble spoke about the game and season after the game.

“I had a lot of young people grow together and no regrets for anything and I am more proud of this team than I ever thought I would be because every single one of them loves each other,” Pribble continued. “We are losing a lot of seniors, but we lost a lot of seniors last year and everybody knocked us down for doing that and said we would not be very good, so I am pretty sure we proved everybody wrong and this year we did our job.”

Pribble said the team held their heads high after a tough contest on Friday night.

“We are going to walk off this field proud of our program,” Pribble rallied. “We showed up, we were nothing but a classy program and did everything the right way.”

Junior Allen Lamothe reiterated what Pribble preached to his squad.

“We’ve had an amazing season,” Lamothe said. “I mean I couldn’t be proud of this team. We’ve come so far. We are carrying this legacy and all I can hope for is to continues next year.”

Sophomore Brian Lynt, who unfortunately was injured and unable to play this season was able to become close with many of the players who are moving on to the rest of their careers and into the next chapter of their lives.

“I think we will be great next year,” Lynt promised.
