If one word describes Hackett’s 2018 Little League football season, it would be dominant. The Hackett Little League Football program was “The Man” last season. Both teams ran through their schedule undefeated and both teams made it to the WCFL Championship game. The fifth and sixth grade team ended up coming home with the hardware.
After that kind of success, it’s needless to say that the Hornet community is now ready to see what is to come of the 2019 season. The Hornets will be returning a lot of talent on both squads this year along with some new talent on top of that. The players now have the opportunity to prove that last season wasn’t just a mere fluke, but a warning to their future opponents.
Hackett’s 3rd and 4th Grade Coach, Nick Holbert, said “We are returning from a really good season last year. We fell short at the end in the WCFL Championship game, but we’re really proud of what we accomplished. We have a few key spots to fill this season, but we still have a really good group of kids from last year who are moving up into fourth grade.”
Coaching the 5th and 6th grade Hornets this season will be Chuck Hamilton. Coach Hamilton had this to say, “We’re really excited about the coming season. Can’t wait to welcome the new teams into our league. It’s going to be fun to see some new faces. We return seven starters on defense and six starters on offense. We do have some holes to fill though. Last season we lost our quarterback, two running backs and our center on offense along with all three linebackers and a de on defense. At the end of the day, we feel we have the talent to repeat our champions status. We believe in our kids coming back and we have high expectations for this years team.” The Little League Hornet Football program is ready to roll. Are you?
