On Friday night, Lawrence will play at Brunswick in the Pine Tree Conference Class B championship game. One of the big plays in Lawrence’s 28-27 win over Cony in the semifinals was Dustin Simpson-Bragg’s catch on fourth and 9 late in the fourth quarter to keep the Bulldogs game-winning drive alive.

Simpson-Bragg recently answered a few questions after practice.

How long have you been playing football?

Twelve years.

What do you like about football?

I love the fact that it’s a brotherhood. It’s really a team game. You have to be in sync with your friends and family out there.

What do you like about being a part of the Lawrence tradition?

Everyone in this locker room is a family. We’re all brothers. We all stick together, thick and thin. No matter what, we’re there for each other.

What’s you favorite football memory?

It would have to be that catch last week against Cony. It was going to me, running across the field, a 10-yard slant. Cody (Martin) threw it a little above my head, but I was like, ‘This is for the season. This might be my last game. I just have to go up and get it.’

Do you have a teammate that inspires you?

I’d have to say my best friend, Chad Martin, our linebacker and kicker. He worked all offseason to really get his body in shape, and worked as hard as he could to be the best he can be this year.
