Nature Coast Sharks End Playoff’s For The Bulldogs


The Nature Coast Sharks will be moving on to the next round of the playoffs as they defeated the Zephyrhills Bulldogs by a score of 42 – 13. Zephyrhills had a great run this year and finished the regular season with 8 wins and 2 losses. They were 6 – 1 in the district. It looks to me that next years team will be loaded with talent as was this years team. In any event we will always be proud of the Bulldogs. They played their hearts out this season. Now it’s time to get some rest.

ZHS vs Hudson Is The Brighthouse Game Of The Week


Brighthouse Sports Networks picked the Zephyrhills Bulldogs vs Hudson Cobras as the game they would be covering live this week. Brighthouse must have consulted their crystal ball because this game was truly the “Game Of The Week” Clock operator Kerry Ryman, scoreboard operator Nelson Ryman, Kenny Sanders barking out the stats and myself shared the press box with the Brighthouse broadcast crew. It was a fun game and the Bulldogs came out on top by a score of 52 – 37 over the Cobras. The Bulldogs are now 3 – 0 in the district and 4 – 1 overall. They will be traveling to Ridgewood High School next week. Here are some other scores of interest.

Mitchell 42 Pasco 27

Sunlake 38 Springstead 20

zhs alumni

The Zephyrhills Bulldogs won big time against Fivay High School 69 – 25. It was the first home game of the season. ZHS Athletics and ZHS Cheerleading also won because local Zephyrhills car dealer Thomas And Son decided to put up $100 for every touchdown scored at all home games. It is called the Thomas and Son Touchdown. At the first game ZHS already banked $1000 going into next week’s game against Hudson which is at Bulldog Stadium. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. Also at tonight’s game life long resident, coach, teacher and friend to many Arthur “Skip” Riley was recognized and a moment of silence was held. Skip passed away in May of this year. In addition also recognized was ZHS Athletic Director Bruce Cimorelli’s mom Mary who was laid to rest earlier that day in Bushnell.
