The work continues. We are bringing back, for its seventh year, #TheSeason. We didn’t do these first year, but have ever since. It’s something nobody else does. We compile all season records and write a wrapup for each team. To get them completed more quickly, we are summarizing these a bit more than in seasons past.
Next up in Round 1 of these profiles is Marianna.
You can see everything I have on the Bulldogs in 2020-21 here –> MARIANNA
