New head coach pulls Garrison out of recent slump to 2-0 start

GARRISON, TX (KTRE) -

Not everyone is off to a 2-0 start, but Garrison is.

It's the first time in two years the Bulldogs have gotten off with a 2-0 start and it's with a new head coach, Larry Prince.

Prince is a Garrison native who graduated from Garrison High School. Prince also won a state championship with the Bulldogs in 2003 as their defensive coordinator so he’s well aware of the typical Bulldog tradition.         

After a 11-1 season in 2013, things went through a little slump going 4-6 the following year and then 5-6 last season. Those are the typical records you see in Garrison, but they look to be getting back on track to their winning traditions.

“They know the expectations of being a Garrison Bulldog and those don't change year to year, or coaching staff to coaching staff,” said Prince. “The town had these expectations, the community has expectations, the school has expectations and these kids have big expectations.”

“Everybody respects him knowing he's won a state championship before and he's graduated from here as an alumni. Everybody respects him,” said senior quarterback Charles Bass.

Garrison had two great wins against Bishop Gorman and San Augustine, but they'll be challenged again with Shelbyville Friday night at 7:30 p.m.
