Coach Webb has made it dear he's still looking for some guys to stand out as other wide receiver op- tions. Running back has been something the Red Elephants have lacked a domm" ated playmaker at in recent years. Caldwell Veterinary Hospital, LLC 4. Obviously MP throttled the Elephants last year in just one half of play. But the Bull- dogs lost just about all of their starters. Does Gainesville feel they can win this year, or are they still smarting from last year's beatdown? In my conversations with coach Webb, we never talked about the Mary Persons game. Everyone knows Mary Persons is one of the best programs year-in and year-out in Middle Georgia. I'm sure everyone at Gaines- viUe would like to win this game since ifi; the first one on the schedule, but realisti- cally Mary Persons is one of the best Class 4A programs in the state and almost beat Marist in the quarterfinals last year. I expect the score to be doser than the 42-0 final in2018. 5. This will be Mary Persons'first visit to Bobby Gruhn Field at City Park in Gainesville. What is spec d about the place and what do Bulldog fans need to know if they're making the trip? City Park Stadium is neat for several reasons. It sits right downtown, less than a mile from the downtown square. When the game is going, you can hear the public address system loud and dear from our office, which is about half a mile from the stadium. I believe Gainesville has been playing at City Park Stadium since the 1920s (maybe earlier) so a lot of remarkable players (Deshaun Watson, A.]. John- son, Billy Martin and Billy Lothridge, among many others) played on the same fidd. From the visitors' side, there is a steep embankment behind the Civic Center which has a really good view overlooking the stadium. Those who don't want to sit on hard bleachers can stand and watch from the side overlooking it. Parking is a bit fight. A restaurant called "Sliced" is fight beside the stadium. Really good food.
