If you love road trips, then you’d love to be a Hazard Bulldog this season.

As of right now that seems to be the way things will go again this year, barring an upset by an up and coming Phelps team. The two perennial powers are no strangers to each other. Both teams and coaching staffs are familiar with the others offenses and defenses, and like years past this one may end up being another battle.
