Summary: New head coach Orion Martin says his biggest challenge is changing the mindset of his team. They're coming a one-win season and he says some of the players were still hanging their heads in the offseason. They don't have a lot of big and strong guys but they do have skill position players with speed. QB DeShaun Price, a backup last season, is the main man behind center this season. So far in preseason scrimmages, the Bulldogs have struggled with penalties so the coaching staff has put an emphasis on minimizing mistakes. Martin admits that the schedule is challenging with games against Dan River, G.W., Tunstall, and Cave Spring.
