Not only has the Freeport Bulldogs football team had a little bump in the number of players, they had a little increase in poundage as well.

"We've got about 10 more kids than we've had before," said Freeport Coach Jim Anderson. "We've got 44 altogether … so we're really happy about that."

In addition to the larger numbers, the size of the players on the offensive line has beefed up as well.

"We've got some good size, some bigger boys," Anderson said. The Bulldogs have about 10 varsity offensive lineman, so there will be some "good competition" to fill the five slots.

The players range from 170- to 250- pounds.

"The guys that aren't really big have a lot of experience, and the big guys don't have as much experience, but they've got good size and strength."

But more than numbers or size, Coach Anderson says the players are "working hard and have great attitudes."
