• Scrimmages to end spring practice
By Jim Wallace

Fans will get a preview of the 2014 Bulldogs Friday night as Thomson High School has scrimmages at The Brickyard.
It will be the first look at the upcoming football season under new head coach Rob Ridings.
The Bulldogs will wrap up spring practices Friday with scrimmages that begin at 6 p.m. Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for students.
Upcoming freshmen will be on the field for 40 minutes under a running clock and then the varsity team will play four 10-minute quarters in the Black and Gold game.
Ridings said he was pleased with the number of players at practice.
“We had close to 80 varsity rising sophomores, juniors and seniors and close to 41 incoming freshmen report to the practices,” he said.
“We’d like to see more players, but that’s not bad for our first spring practice and hopefully we can improve number-wise as the summer goes along.”
The practices have been a time of learning new language as far as formations and plays.
“I’ve got to get to know our guys and they’ve got to learn my expectations and how we are going to practice and how we are going to get after it,” said Ridings.
