My Take: First impressions
Portal linebacker Trent Thomas, top, tackles Southeast Bulloch's Cole Carter, bottom right, and Michael Davis after the two bobbled a hand-off in the fourth quarter Friday.
It was a solid start to the 2013 football season for all four Bulloch County schools last week. Bulloch Academy blazed a trail to a 45-0 rout, Statesboro once again prevailed in its annual tooth-and-nail street fight against Lakeside, and Southeast Bulloch and Portal — while neither can claim a win just yet — showed some grit and defensive muscle in their 0-0 tie that will come in handy once the offenses get in gear. All of these teams are far from a one-man show, but the beginning of the season is when seasoned veterans can take that next step and become stars.
