Six Bulldogs, five Comets selected for all-district football first-team

The two Globe Gazette area teams in Class 3A, District 3 both made considerable improvements from last season to this one.

Under new head coach Cole Miller, the Hampton-Dumont-CAL football team qualified for the state playoffs and finished with five wins for the first time since 2015.
