The DeSoto County Bulldogs football team began practice last week and have seen several new things this season.

First there is a new blocking sled that was assembled last Friday before practice. The five-man sled not only builds up strength but it has a resistance to it provided by a strong coil spring. No longer can an offensive man just brush by his block. The sled will provide some resistance not found when a teammate held a dummy as in the past. This piece of equipment also frees up the defensive team to work on their plays rather than holding dummies for the offense.
