NORTH BEND, Ore. -- The defending 4A state champions kick off the new football season Friday night.

The North Bend Bulldogs were undefeated last year on the way to the state title.

This season will be challenging for the Bulldogs after nearly all of last year’s starters graduated.

"Not only were a lot of our starters seniors, a lot of their backups were seniors as well,” head coach Gary Prince said, “so we got limited reps at the varsity level with these guys. I think as they continue to play and gain more experience we're going to see a pretty solid football team out there."

The Bulldogs open the season Friday night at home against Astoria.
