THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL) — The Thomasville Bulldogs are three wins away from celebrating a State Championship, and this is a group that's locked in after falling in the state semifinals a year ago.

The approach they've taken this year? Worry about themselves.

Every opponent you face at this point in the season will be tough, and Callaway, who they'll face Friday, is no different from anyone else.

Callaway is 9 and 1 on the year, and Thomasville head coach Zach Grage knows the test that's ahead of them.

They understand what's at stake, but he said as long as they focus on their game plan, they're confident they'll get the job done.

"At this point in the season, I said it last week multiple times, at this point in the season, I think people get loaded down with scheme. I think it has to be more about fundamentals and dudes," said Grage on Tuesday. "Just let our guys be playmakers. At the end of the night, as long as we know our guys touched the ball and as long as our guys on defense flew around. Play with a lot of energy and passion. That's going to be key for this one. Hopefully, we get off the bus fast, and play well in all three phases of the game, and lay it all out on the field."

The Bulldogs are on the road Friday night for their AA quarterfinal contest with Callaway. Kick-off is set for 7:30.
