The new coach is replacing long-time coach Wes Croy, who moved into the athletic director position this summer, after a decade on the C.F. Russell Stadium sidelines.

Boswell has familiarity with the Bulldog program, having been a varsity assistant and middle school head coach last season. There is a good amount of proven and experienced talent coming back to THS this fall, and while a challenging schedule and district await the team, Boswell says he is dreaming big as it pertains to his coaching tenure with the Bulldogs:

Big events are quickly approaching for the Bulldogs in August, with the season opener at Carrollton on August 22nd, and the home opener the following Friday (August 29th) against the Lexington Minutemen. In the more immediate future, Trenton will host a four-team jamboree against familiar foes on Friday, August 15th at C.F. Russell Stadium:

Along with the new coach, the Bulldogs will feature a different "on-the-field" look in 2014. While keeping some aspects of Coach Croy's "split-back veer" offense, Boswell will utilize a "pistol" look this season, referring to a snap that involves the quarterback lining up a couple of yards behind the line of scrimmage to start the play:

While an exact number was not immediately available, the total number of boys going out for football this year is expected to be in the middle to upper 40's. Boswell admitted that there are some boys choosing not to go out for the sport this year (that the coaching staff would like on the team), but that "90 percent of the players the staff would like to have participating, are doing so" in 2014.
