Georgetown football looks to turn things around in 2022

GEORGETOWN — There’s no denying that 2021 was a tough year for Georgetown football.

The Bulldogs went 0-10 on the season and 0-4 in Region 7-AAA play, but that 0-4 record came in a region that was filled with playoff teams, including lower state runner-up Dillon, Aynor, Loris and Waccamaw. Manning is also now back in the region, another team the Bulldogs can’t take lightly.

Georgetown will also have to replace key departures in defensive end Kendall Vanderhorst, running back/linebacker Andre McGill and offensive lineman Josiah Mitchell. However, head coach Jimmy Noonan, who is in his third season with the Bulldogs, will have a few key returners to rely on this year, including senior running back Taji Mitchell, junior quarterback Owen Powell and senior linebacker Bryson Miller.

The Bulldogs were supposed to open up the 2022 season with a non-region game at Hanahan on Aug. 19, but the game was canceled due to weather. Now instead of four, Georgetown will have three away games to start the season.

However, it will be worth the wait for a home game when the Bulldogs get to play on their new turf on Sept. 16 when Lake City comes to town.
