The Bulldogs are 2-2 and need a win to remain playoff viable as teams head into the second half of the season.

Blame it on some combination of Scafe being a second-team player on the Bulldog squad that year, and age-related memory loss on the part of the person sitting on this side of your newspaper or laptop screen. As a result, T.J.’s story went untold throughout his four years of high school and through his freshman year at Williams College in Massachusetts.
