“Our biggest goal is going to be getting the first playoff win in school history.”
2nd-year Anderson County High School football head coach Logan Pegram made the 2020 Bulldog campaign objective very clear.
The Bulldogs finished with a 4-5 record last season, including a 33-20 loss against Columbus.
“We return 4 of our key starters on the [offensive]line, bring back Bo [Dilliner] at quarterback, and have some talented young kids at the skill position.”
1st Team All-League Quarterback Bo Dilliner returns for the Bulldogs. The dual-threat Dilliner put up 644 yards passing with 9 touchdowns last season while rushing for 947 yards and 12 touchdowns. Dilliner missed two games due to injury.
Looking to add to the offensive threats is junior running back Fisher Galey, who took over the carrying duties late.
With seniors Justin Stifter and Josh Stifter and juniors Dalton Kellerman and Chaylin Peine, the ground game should be a strength for Anderson County.
Kellerman will be a defensive presence for the Bulldogs. The 6’3″ 215lbs. Junior was named 2nd Team All-League Defensive End last year.
Much like the offensive ground game, the special teams unit will feature the foot of Fisher Galey. He was named 1st Team All-League Punter and went 15 of 16 on PAT’s in 2019.
“I look forward to having our kids in year two in the system. The one issue we currently are fighting is depth,” said Pegram.
Anderson County opens up their 2020 season with back-to-back games at home against Parsons and Wellsville. In their district portion of the schedule, they will play 3 of their 5 games on the road: at Girard, at Frontenac, and at league rival Burlington.
