Trion Football kicks off the season Thursday evening at 7:30 p.m. in a scrimmage against Lafayette. The game will be a BLUE out.


The scrimmage will be four quarters with the varsity playing the first half, the JV and freshmen will see action in the 3rd and 4th quarter.  The kicking will not be live.  “We are looking to get our kids out there and compete.  I want to see us playing physical.  Excited to get these guys on tape so we can further evaluate them.  Hoping we see a little adversity to find out how we’ll respond,” Bulldog Head Coach Justin Brown said.

Coming off of an 8-4 season that included some epic highlights, including a 40-34 OT win against rival Gordon Lee and a 3-0 sweep of Region 7-AA opponents: Coosa, Dade, and Armuchee, Bulldog fans have been anticipating the 2019 Football Roster and Head Coach Justin Brown just released the updated list of Trion players.

Following a successful Spring training camp, Trion jumped right into a busy summer. In June, the offensive line spent five days at the Mike Hodges camp designed to focus on fundamentals in the trenches. Skill position players attended a 7-on-7 camp at Southeast Whitfield and another at Darlington in June as well.

Alex Stewart

Brown says that many of the 14 seniors will be playing both ways in the Fall. Expect to see several of those seniors as two-way starters and one kicking. Alex Stewart, Clay Baker, Will Wyatt, Kodak Crappe, Rob Brown, Brantley Hastings, Byrce Wallin and Ross Moore are all expected to start on both offense and defense.

At quarterback, Brown will be relying on senior Lincoln Maddux to lead the Bulldogs’ offensive unit. Brown made no bones about it, “I have huge expectations for Lincoln.” Following a solid junior campaign, Maddux has stepped up to be a more vocal leader for the Blue. “He has grown into a leader. He had a great summer throwing the ball and has a command of the offense.” commented Brown.

Depth at Quarterback: Connor Deparlier sophomore, Logan Eller freshman

Rob Brown will be the A-back with big shoes to fill. Replacing Hagen Willingham, who signed with Berry College, Brown will need to replace a record rushing performance from Willingham and Coach Brown looks for a combined performance from his backfield unit. “We are going to need all our backs to step up with three new starters back there… we are going to be looking for productivity from all of them,” said Coach Brown.

With 55 players on the 2019 squad, the coaches will need maximum performance from every Bulldog to improve on the 2018 playoff-team that ventured into the third week of post-season play.
