SUWANNEE COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — The Suwannee Bulldogs have made the playoffs in back to back seasons, but what's been holding them back is their ability to finish games, something they're trying to make sure doesn't repeat this season.

The Suwannee Bulldogs are up next for our Friday Night Overtime Camp Chat.

The Bulldogs have a lot of talent heading into 2020.

Jaquez Moore steps in to replace quarterback Tyree Taylor, and head coach Kyler Hall said their depth at receiver is the best it's been in a long time.

Suwannee had to replace some big guys up front, but Hall is confident in the guys that have stepped up to fill the line.

On defense, Hall is confident in the Bulldog's secondary and linebacker group. They're guys that have a lot of experience.

Now it's about turning that experience into making sure the job is done.

This is a team that didn't finish a lot of games last year and they're determined to not let history repeat itself.

"Kind of our theme this year is overcome," said Hall. "Last year we'd be in games and we'd make a mistake that wasn't a game decider but we couldn't overcome that penalty or that big play we gave up. We have to do that this year. The talent's there, the experience is there, these guys have matured since last year."

"The team we have now, we've been playing rec league and little league since we were seven and eight," said Jaquez Moore, a Suwannee senior. "We know each other, we know each other's tendencies and we know how each other plays and how each other moves. Everybody has the same attitude out here. It's not somebody gets down then everybody gets down. If one person's down, everyone is lifting them up."

The Bulldogs debut on September 4 when they host Santa Fe at 7:30 p.m.
