Baldwin football continues building a tradition

BALDWIN – After four consecutive winning seasons and three straight playoff appearances, including the program’s first district title last year, the Baldwin football team must now replace star quarterback and current Central Michigan Chippewa Brandon Childress.

With a new man under center this fall, coach Doug Bolles expects his team to continue building upon its new winning tradition and defend its Northwestern Six Conference title. The Panthers have not lost a league game since falling to Onekama in the fourth week of the 2011 season.

“We’re at the point now where we don’t want to say that we’re rebuilding, we’re just building a program, and just hopefully the kids got some playing time and reps and we can move forward,” Bolles said. “The big push that we have right now is, as hard as it was to get to the top, it’s harder to stay there.”

Baldwin kicks off its 2015 campaign at home with Reed City on Aug. 28.
