Leading up to the Nebraska high school football season, NEPrepZone.com will be looking at the top teams in each class, based on last season’s final rankings. First up, Eight Man-2 is in the spotlight with a new post each day. Let us know in the comments how you think each team will finish, as well as the players you’ll be watching.
* * *
Coach: Mike Lowe
Last season: Lost 60-20 in state semifinals to eventual-champion Giltner.
Luke Glenn, RB: Glenn set single-season school records in rushing yards (2,009), rushing touchdowns (36) and total touchdowns (41) as a senior last season.
Replacing Glenn’s 220 carries from last season will be a daunting task, especially on a team that likes to run the ball.
The Bulldogs gave up more than 28 points just once last season, but it was enough to knock them out of the playoffs.
