Muscle Connection H.S. Football Preview: Lakeview Bulldogs

Posted: Updated:
CORTLAND, Ohio -

Tom Pavlansky is in his 19th season as the head coach of the Lakeview Bulldogs.  

His club goes after its 15th straight nonlosing season in 2017.  

The Bulldogs last had a losing record in 2002 (record 4-6) and except for a hiccup in 2006 when they finished 5-5, have been on the positive side of the ledger.

Zack Rogers is back for his third season at quarterback. Last year he threw for more than 1,700 yards and 13 touchdowns. "He's going to be a big part of what we do," Pavlansky said. "He's been working hard along with his fellow seniors and they're trying the best to have success."

The Bulldogs have 17 seniors and Pavlansky is counting on Rogers, Alex Bartholomew, JD Lewis and Evan Adair to lead the way. "Those guys have done a great job leading," said Pavlansky of his four captains.

Defensively, the Bulldogs return six starters. "Those guys have to be the strength for us," Pavlansky said. "We have some good young guys we're excited about and their all working to get better."
