GREENFIELD — Greenfield-Central head coach Roger Dodson knows if things had broken a little differently this offseason, he could have been absent from the Cougar’s season-opening contest rather than walking along the Cougars’ sidelines.
Fortunately for the coach, who resigned and was re-hired all in the span of about a month over the summer, that wasn’t the case. Instead, Dodson helped lead his Cougars to a decisive 48-18 win against Class 1A Indianapolis Shortridge
“There was that possibility that I wouldn’t be back. But I reapplied because this is where I wanted to be. Thankfully it worked out that way.” Dodson said.
Despite Dodson’s presence and the wide margin of victory, the game wasn’t all smooth sailing. Greenfield-Central had major turnover problems, including on its opening possession.
