NAMPA — Nampa High quarterback Braden Minor remembers the days of finishing up practice at Centennial Elementary and walking down Lake Lowell Avenue and watching the Bulldogs play.
Minor doesn’t remember if those years include 2009, the last time the Bulldogs made the state playoffs, but he remembers one thing about the program: They won.
“I’d walk down, stand by the white fence and watch the game,” Minor said. “It was a long time ago, but I remember watching games and I remember winning games. That’s all that mattered.”
It’s been a long time since those days, but believe it, the Nampa Bulldogs are headed back to the playoffs
Nampa upset No. 1-ranked Middleton 35-28 on Thursday night during Senior Night at Bulldog Bowl to secure the Bulldogs’ first trip to the 4A state tournament since 2009.
