In a preseason full of excessive heat and rain that has plagued teams throughout the state, the Bulloch Academy Gators are no exception. Since a three-team jamboree scrimmage held last Friday, Bulloch has only been able to get into full pads once. With opening night just 12 days away, every minute is becoming vital as the Gators prepare to contend in a talented Class AAA. “With all of the weather issues, we’re a good week behind where we had planned,” BA coach Ronnie Hodges said.
