With the regular season just over a week away, the Marlboro County High football team is putting the finishing touches on their abbreviated preseason drills.
Last Saturday, the Bulldogs traveled to Socastee to play their only controlled scrimmage of the year. Coach Bobby Collins was generally pleased with what he saw from his team.
"We got off the bus ready to play. That was an issue last year, in that we were really slow to get started. We started the scrimmage quicker," said Collins.
The Bulldog offense marched 70 yards with the first possession of the game, using a mixture of running and passing plays. The drive was capped by a three-yard pass from quarterback Jesse Williams to Jaden Bostic.
Socastee's first possession was ended with an interception by Bulldog linebacker Jhamari Talley.
