Pasco Football Rebuilding the Foundation

Posted: Updated:

Pasco, WA---

     Pasco football took a hit in the Pasco divide of 2009, which created two schools. Chiawana being the by product, flourished last season going to the state playoffs.  The Bulldogs struggled.  In the past two seasons since the split... Pasco's 5-16.  Head coach Dustin Lamb who is entering his third year running the show, continues to rebuild a former powerhouse on the grid-iron.  A tall order for a team returning just four starters to spring ball.   

    Lamb said, "It's the situation we're in. Kamiakin dealt with the split years ago when Southridge was built and now they've obviously gained momentum. And Kennewick's back to being a very competitive program. Now with two schools there's a lot more opportunity and we're getting kids out that probably as fourth and fifth graders didn't think they'd ever be apart of a high school program but now they are. Trying to build a program up from the bottom to the top and we got a lot more freshman than we've had the last two years, so we're starting to see our numbers come back up."
