       Priceville completed the 2015 season with a 8-3 record. Last year Priceville captured the region seven title and a number one seed in the Class 4A playoffs. They finished region play with a 6-1 record. It was the first region championship for the Bulldogs. Priceville's season came to an end in the first round of the playoffs when they fell to Hamilton by a score of 29-28.

       The Bulldogs improved in 2015 with their first winning season since 2007. No team at Priceville ever won more games in a season than the eight victories last year. The 450 points scored by the Bulldogs last year were a team record in a single season. It marked the first time since the 2007 season that the Bulldogs qualified for the playoffs. The Bulldogs have never won a playoff game in the school's history. They would like to break through and pick up that first post season victory in 2016.
