Last year the Hawks ended their football season with an unfortunate 1-9 record. But this year, they have different plans.
“Everybody wants to win. But you have to do a lot of hard work in order to win, and this year we have a team that is willing to put in that work and win our games,” junior and varsity lineman Wesley Dawn said.
The Hawks have been practicing, training and building on last year all summer. Seniors Billy Lechtenberg, Paul Clingan and Derrik Larsen will be the leaders on the team.
There is though, a lack of seniors, and the Hawks will rely on younger players to get the job done.
Their football team’s first game is at 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 5 at Edmonds Stadium against the Royals of Lynnwood.
Then shortly after the season opener, the always exciting Homecoming game will be held on Oct. 3 at Edmonds Stadium against Cascade High School.
