With a more defined plan, the Marlboro County High football team will soon resume workouts for the upcoming season. The Bulldogs will start conditioning on Monday, August 3 for the season that will now begin in mid-September.
"We stopped our workouts on the week of July 4th, just to get some clarity from the High School League about how the season would be held. Now we have that and we'll be back to work soon," said head coach Bobby Collins.
Last week, the South Carolina High School League announced that football would be reduced to a seven-game regular season that will begin September 11. The region games will be moved to the first five contests of the season, allowing some flexibility in getting those playoff-determining games in.
The playoffs are scheduled to begin October 30, with the state championships being played before Thanksgiving.
