Repetition in the Slot-T can only help the Bulldogs be more prolific, and with the installation of a new defense, as well, Millsap should be in a much better position to embrace both systems with a decent-sized senior class and “veteran” juniors who endured last year’s varsity trials.
Dublin returns nearly the full compliment of last season’s starters, and despite a sound beating at the hands of Hico in its inaugural contest, may have a some misplaced confidence in thinking Millsap will be a walk-over.
The Bulldogs backfield spread out the touches in the rushing game last week, with Andrew Tyson the most productive, averaging five yards a carry.
Millsap is thirsting for a win, and would love to use Dublin as a pivot point for its 2013 fortunes.

Brock Eagles (1-0)
Last season: 2-0 varsity record
Last week: Beat Gateway Charter, 34-0
Players to watch: QBs Joseph Earl, Seth Boleman, RBs Leddy French, Matthew McCartney, Kolbin Mills, O-line Jake Earl, Cooper Gore, Tyler Collier, D-line Hunter Pittman, Billy Tedford, Titus Gossett.
Game notes: Running, passing and receiving, QB/RB Slaten Gough, one of Brock’s three seniors, accounted for more than 250 yards of the Eagles’ 411 yards of total offense last week.
Gough shared time at quarterback with Seth Boleman, staying extremely busy even when not taking snaps. Brock dominated on both sides of the ball with proficiency in its win over Dallas Gateway. About the only downside to Brock’s attack was losing the ball via fumbles three times.
