Head Coach: Scott Surratt
District: 8-4A Division II
School Colors: Red, White, Black
Stadium Address: 1 Bulldog Dr, Carthage, TX 75633
2021 Record: 11-1
Notes: The Carthage Bulldogs finished 2021 in the playoffs with a loss to eventual champion China Spring. They head into 2022 now in Region II with a new challenging district. The Bulldogs defense will reload with just two starters returning and they will have to replace Kip Lewis, now at Oklahoma. In fact the defense will have new faces at all three levels. The best thing the team has going is experience at the quarterback position and the wide receiver crop led by Division I bound Montrell Hatton. The offensive line will also be a concern.
Players to watch: “Connor Cuff (QB, Sr) took the reigns of the offense in 2021 and looks to build off last season with most of his weapons coming back. Montrel Hatten (WR, Sr) is a dynamic wide-out who made many incredible catches in 2021 and looks to do more of the same and then some in 2022. Noah Paddie (WR/KR, Sr) is a speedy and gritty player who is a great returner who made multiple big time returns (including a few for touchdowns) that break games wide open. He is also a critical part of the offense in motion on jet sweeps and as a solid route runner. Keystone Allison (OT, Sr) is an anchor at tackle for the Dawgs offense and is a long, rangy, and athletic offensive lineman who has garnered lots of college interest. He should continue to grow and improve going into his senior season.”
