HS Football: Young Palisade team finds stride

After starting the season 2-2 Palisade has won four straight games with three being on the road.

In those wins the Bulldogs scored no less than 35 points in each of those wins.

They're average margin of victory. is 23 points.

"The turning point was knowing that you can't take any competition lightly," senior running back Austin Bernal says. "You have to take every team the same and prepare the same every week. I think we've learned how to work and how to come together as a team and be able to perform on Friday night. I think we turned the corner especially this last week against Battle even though it was a lower level team. I think we've showcased our ability to play against the best."

After graduating a handful of key players the young Bulldogs have grown up this season.

"Part of it has to do with experience and just getting to play with each other for more than a couple games or summer practices," sophomore quarterback Cameron Tucker says.. "Just getting that real life game experience. I think that's really helped us the last couple games and just being able to click as a team."

Palisade will host Summit on Thursday at 7 P.M. at Stocker Stadium
