EAST PALESTINE OH- The East Palestine football program has always been one to pride itself on the effort given on the field. The Bulldogs always focus on the most controllable things in a locker room, effort, and attitude. This year you can clearly see the attitude and mindset is there for East Palestine. That all comes from the top. Head coach Mike Dempster has instilled a work ethic into the program that no one can deny. These Bulldogs compete for every inch out on the football field, and then let the chips fall where they may. You’ll never see a Bulldog put their head down, and you know you can’t keep a hungry dog down for long.
