MICHIGANTOWN, Ind. (WLFI) — The Clinton Central football team suffered a winless season in 2017.
While the new campaign has yet to begin, the Bulldogs are already suffering with another loss.
However, this loss digs much deeper.
Jaden Quick died last Friday in a car accident.
Quick, a senior captain who earned all-conference honors as a wide receiver and linebacker last season is gone.
But he's not forgotten.
Clinton Central enters fall camp with heavy hearts.
Second-year head coach Justin Gardiner brings back 16 starters — eight on both sides of the ball.
Junior quarterback Spencer Smith will direct the Wing-T attack.
Defensively, lineman Kolt Keller and Scott Harness will look to dictate the trenches and the team's secondary returns five starters.
Before the Bulldogs go for win number one, they are looking to move forward following the death of a player and person who meant so much to the program and community.
