GLEASON, Tenn. – Gleason head football coach Noah Lampkins is no stranger to doing a lot with a little. The Bulldogs football roster typically consists of 30-40 players. This season’s roster is nearly cut in half. “It’s tough. We have about 160 kids in our high school,” Lampkins said. “We’re the smallest public playing football school in the state of Tennessee. It makes it tough because you only have roughly 80 boys to choose from.” Lampkins is using the short-handed roster of 20-22 kids as inspiration. “You’re sacrificing and you could be doing lots of other things,” Lampkins added. “Don’t waste that time and try to use it as motivation.” Gleason finished 2-8 last season. They open up the 2015 season on the road against Fulton Co. in Kentucky.
