The Bulldogs had three convincing wins over West Blocton, Chelsea, and Talledega County Training. The '79 season turned out to be disappointing as the ‘Dogs suffered seven losses due to a tough schedule, lack of speed, the injury of a key player, and the rebuilding of the interior line. Nev- ertheless, the Bulldogs finished fifth in the Shelby County rankings.
