Footballers take home team to task
Friday night, October 2, provided good football weather for the Bridgeport Bulldog’s first game back on the field since the loss of their teammate, senior Joshua Warren, in a car accident after their homecoming loss the weekend before. Bridgeport travelled to Gordon-Rushville to take on the Mustangs in front of a large visiting crowd. The Bulldogs came in with a 4-1 record and the Mustangs were 2-3, coming off two big wins.
Warren was honored before the game in a touching tribute by both teams. As he was a big fan of tie dye colors, the Bulldogs made and both teams donned tie-dyed socks in his memory, while the Gordon-Rushville Cheerleaders cheered in tie dyed shirts. The groundskeeper painted purple hashmarks on the 29-yard line in remembrance of Josh, and the G/R fans who gathered for the game wore some sort of tiedyed clothing. In the moments leading up to the game, a large white tie dyed #29 Fly High flag was run onto the field by Bulldog teammate and friend, senior Damien Bell and planted nearby on the sideline for the remainder of the game.
