It'll be raining Cats and Dogs in Thomasville.

Parody would be the word to use when talking about High School Football this season. Take Thomasville and Dooly County, two teams that have a lot of history and between them is only one victory. Thomasville has had the worst of it so far losing to Cairo, TCCHS, and Bainbridge.

"We have to play through the tough times", says Thomasville Head Coach Tommy Welch, "The kids are showing a lot of improvement but when you get into a rut, it's hard to get out of it. But we have to do something."

Dooly County is a state runner up from a season ago. The Cats are 1-2 this season with two hard losses to open the year.

But Welch says you can't focus on the record to figure out how good this team really is.

"Dooly has a quarterback that runs a 4.4 in the 40 yard dash", says Welch, "they'll go to work against you."

When asked what the problem has been in the Rose City, Coach Welch says, a little of everything.

"It's a combination of offense, defense, and special teams. We've given up a lot of points and a lot of big plays."

To be exact, the Bulldogs have given up 123 points in 3 games, that's the number of points this defense is used to giving up in an entire season.

But if the defense can find a way to stop the big play and the offense can put up a few points, the Thomasville may have a chance to break out of it's current funk.

"The home field will help out a little bit", says Welch, "But we need to find a way to play 4 quarters."
