Lapel - Tim Miller knew this when he accepted the Lapel football coaching position earlier this year: He wasn’t getting into a bed of roses, and it was going to take time and work to rebuild a program that went 4-17 the previous two seasons.
And the scope of what needs to be done was evident when the Bulldogs got out of the gate with seven straight losses — all but one by at least 24 points — and finished 2-9, like they did last year.
“Our kids were pretty disappointed,” Miller said. “We made strides in the right direction as the season went on, and I’m hopeful we can build on that for next year.”
There were inherent handicaps, and the biggest one was the competition Lapel faced.
