Hawks start preseason drills
In the words of new head coach Clifford Brown, the Holly High football Hawks decided to get a leg up on the competition by kicking off the practice season with a midnight drill.
Is this an exciting time? Confusing, perhaps, but exciting.
We have the greatest season of the year (no, not for everyone, but for many of us) starting in just a matter of weeks and we still have vestiges of the third greatest season lingering to pique our interest (and confuse us). Top that off with the second greatest season still heading for its showdown dates in mid-autumn.
