Marianna Bullpups are Conference Champions

The Marianna Middle School Bullpups took the field last Thursday night with a win in their eyes and determination in their level of play.  Coach Jamie Goodwin had the team ready to pick up a conference championship and they didn’t disappoint.   They walked away with a 30-12 win and conference championship under first-year coach Jamie Goodwin.  

Suwannee had first possession and the Bullpups thwarted that drive with an interception.  The Bullpups went for it on fourth down, but came up just shy, turning the ball over on downs.  Seconds later, a forced fumble had the Bullpups with the ball on their own 41.  It was Ryan Paramore heading into the promise land on a 37-yard run.  The point after failed but the Pups were leading 6-0.  

Marianna took over following a Suwannee punt at their own 17 but were forced to punt after three downs.  Suwannee made good on a 47-yard pass in the end zone to tie the game at six with 1:14 left in the first quarter.  Tremaine Bell had a three-yard touchdown run and followed it up with a conversion to put the Bullpups up 14-6 with five minutes to go in the second quarter Suwannee kept the game close with a score but the extra point failed and Marianna led 14-12 with 2:13 to go in the half.  

Marianna picked up another score before the first half came to an end.  Ryan Paramore set up the one yard run by Tremaine Bell on a 44-yard reception.  The conversion was good and the Bullpups increased their lead to 22-12.  

Landon Garcia brought the crowd to their feet on a leaping one-arm catch to set up a first and goal at the two-yard line on the opening drive of the second half.  Ryan Paramore was in the end zone one play later and the Bullpups were in control 30-12.  

Congratulations to the Marianna Bullpups football players, coaches, and fans on their championship win and season from the publisher and staff of the Jackson County Times.
