Bulldog football in different district

Live Oak — The 2013 Suwannee High School Bulldog football schedule will be different this season as the program will face several new opponents since being moved to a new district. 


Gone are the match-ups against Rutherford, Godby and Rickards. The only schools that SHS will be playing this upcoming season from last season are Madison County, Hamilton County and Santa Fe. 


SHS moves from District 2 to District 5 and will remain in Class 5A.


“It’s really good for us because it is a seven team district, which means we don’t have to go to Panama City to find non-district games like we did in a four team district,” said SHS Athletic Director Hunter Abercrombie. “It’s also a district that we feel we have a great shot to compete in and have a chance to make the playoffs. That’s huge when you’re trying to rebuild a program. Getting over that hump and finding a way into the playoffs would be big for our kids.”


Suwannee joins Belleview, Crystal River, Dunnellon, Eastside (Gainesville), North Marion and Santa Fe in the district. 


Suwannee will have five district games this season compared to three last season. 


The 2013 Kickoff Classic will be on Aug. 23 against Madison County. SHS goes straight into its first game against district opponent Bradford County on Aug. 30.
