The good news is the Spiro Bulldogs are ready to get the 2012 season going.
â€śThey're anxious and getting fired up, more so than in the last few weeks,â€ť said Chris Bunch, Spiro's coach.
However, the â€™Dogs will have a tough opener as they will travel to meet Class 2A's top-ranked Vian Wolverines at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
â€śThey're rated No. 1 in their class and are picked to win state in their class,â€ť Bunch said. â€śWe're the underdogs, and our kids are going to have to step up to the challenge.â€ť
