Nederland's Brock Pryor a highlight of Bulldogs season

(Continued)

NEDERLAND —

In three years, Pryor hasn’t lost to PN-G, which is fact he’s very proud of. It’s also part of the legacy he’d like to leave for future Nederland defenses. The legacy of this entire defensive group will have a huge impact on future classes.

“It started last year with our defensive line coming out and having a good year,” Lowrance said. “What (Pryor) and the other guys have done for the position is it’s not just a bunch of slow, big kids. They’re athletic and quick. There’s definitely a legacy developing because of their work ethic. Caleb Malveaux is one of the ones affected. From last year to this, Malveaux is light-years better and it’s because of (Brock), because he plays next to Brock and the things Brock has taught him. As a coach, you can’t ask for more than that.”

BULLDOG BITES: The son of Rachelle and Phillip Pryor, Brock said he’d like to play football collegiately and has been talking with a few schools. … Nederland’s consecutive shutouts the past two seasons are rare. The last time a Bulldog defense had consecutive shutouts in a season before last year was in 1969, when Nederland had six shutouts and two straight streaks of two and three shutouts, respectively. The last time Nederland had consecutive seasons with consecutive shutouts was 1960-61. The last time Nederland had two shutouts period in consecutive seasons was 1999-2000, when Nederland had five. Since Larry Neumann took over as head coach in 1993, the Bulldogs have amassed 18 shutouts. Since 1982, they’ve had 23 shutouts. Since the team started play in 1925, Nederland has recorded 186 shutouts, with 120 of those happening from 1931-60. … The only two defenders with more tackles than Pryor this season are the two linebackers, Korbin Stampley and Jordan Wood. Pryor is one of six Nederland defenders with at least one sack and the Bulldogs had 16 total sacks heading into the Lumberton game.
