One game blocked Bullard from the playoffs last year. They don't plan on letting it happen again.
"Rather than a lot of words, I really think the kids understand where they want to be," Coach Jim Taylor said.
"It all came down to that last game with Canton," offensive and defensive lineman Blain Faulk said. "We've got to make the playoffs this year."
In their first year with Coach Jim Taylor, Bullard went 6-4, a year after going 4-6.
"The playoffs are a big hope," quarterback Charlie Moore said. "It's a big goal to tell (the younger) kids to get. Just to be able to play as long as you can with each other because this is it."
Now, Bullard moves into a much tougher district.
"Well, we've got Gilmer and Tatum, big schools that went to state championships and the playoffs," Faulk said. "We're going to get up there and play with them. We're not going to back down."
