Pair of kickers lead Goochland

GOOCHLAND, VA (WWBT) - The Goochland Bulldogs are proud to say that two of their best players, are kickers.  In fact, the Bulldogs have two of the best kickers in the state.

Colby Cooke and Thomas Meadows were friends on the soccer team.  They decided to try out for the football team together, and now they're both headed to BCS schools on kicking scholarships.

Cooke, the place kicker and kickoff guy, has verbally committed to Vanderbilt.  Meadows, the punter, will head to Purdue.

But before they get there, the seniors are trying to lead Goochland back to the playoffs.

The Bulldogs open Friday at Fluvanna.
