Geneva County needs region wins for postseason play


Hartford, Ala. (WDHN) — With the high school football season winding down, teams on the playoff bubble are needing to remain viable for the postseason.

Coach Jim Bob Striplin of the Geneva County Bulldogs is just one of those teams. In the last two weeks, the Bulldogs scored 132 points which included a victory over Barbour County and a last-minute loss to G.W. Long.

The school from Hartford is 2-4 overall and 1-3 in the region. With five ninth-graders starting on defense, Striplin says it’s a work in progress.

“That’s what I keep on saying to the guys, we can turn the corner and we have some big games coming up,” Striplin said.

The bulldogs need a victory this Friday night against their 1-5 region rivals the Cottonwood Bears.
