Bulldogs look to make some noise

“Hunter is just a gutsy kid that does everything he is asked. He’s a great team guy and we’ve got a lot of those (kinds) of players that do what you ask them and that’s what it takes to be successful.”

Freshman Corey Armstrong, who is recovering from a knee injury, will share time with Willis at second base.

Seth Thomason is a two-year starter at first base and Dennis Gibbons has plenty of experience at third base, where Justin Abdo will see some playing time too.

The Bulldog outfield is talented and deep.

Hendersonwill be flanked by Tate Sweatt in left and Jimmy Croussore in right. Roman Donofro, Justin Rebholz and Hunter Sullivan all are expected to battle for playing time in the outfield as well.

Donofro and Davis Champion, who recently signed scholarships with Jefferson Davis Community College in Brewton, Ala., will anchor the Crestview pitching staff.

Junior pitcher Matt Gillis, the son of coach Tim Gillis, gives the Bulldogs the left-handed pitcher they haven’t had in several seasons. Corey Armstrong will be counted on for to provide some depth on the mound as well.
