While attending the Laurel Bulldogs fateful football game last night I noticed a lot of black Bulldog shirts, black shorts for the cheerleaders, a black outfit for the bands drum major, and black and gray for the color guard.
Last I knew the Bulldog colors were red and white with a pinch of black. Some years back a previous athletic director tried changing the colors to a dominant black with a touch of red and white. The community balked and those colors disappeared. Now they are returning.
Laurel’s first colors were Brown and Gold, and for years under the George Schollenbereger era the colors remained Maroon and White; under coach Bill Pugh the colors were changed to the current red and white, his alma mater colors.
With all the turmoil the school has had I hope they don’t start another trying to change the school colors.
