Visit to Eustace Bulldogs preseason football practice

By Michael V. Hannigan/@mvhannigan

I visited Eustace High School this morning and spent some time on the field with the Bulldogs and Head Coach Heath Ragle. Although the Bulldogs will be young this year, it looked like they had good numbers out for the team.

Coach Ragle and his squad were very upbeat while I was there, even though they had already been out on the field for about two hours.

For fans who want to see some football, the Eustace Bulldogs will be in pads and will be hitting Saturday morning around 7:30 a.m.

Eustace also offered a technological surprise while I was there … a drone. This morning was the first time I’ve seen a drone hovering over a practice.

Here is some video of Coach Ragle.
