Photos: Holmes Bulldogs Football Scrimmage
The Holmes Bulldogs kick off the official football season on Friday night at Boone County.
Last Friday, an intra-squad scrimmage gave fans a pre-season view of the team.
Head coach Benjamin Nevels enters his seventh season leading the Covington program. In his first six seasons, the Bulldogs have compiled a total record of 21 wins and 44 losses, including a 4-7 mark last season that ended with a first round exit in the Class 4A playoffs.
The season starts with some opportunities favorable to Holmes victories. Boone will be followed by a trip to Dry Ridge to face Grant County in week two, and then it's back to Covington in the third week to host Owen County. Those three teams won a combined five games last season.
RCN's Brian Frey was at the scrimmage and produced these photos.
