On Tuesday, June 4, the Sr High Hackett Hornets hosted six teams in their first football camp of the summer. Waldron, Charleston, Keys, Gore, and Panama all turned out to compare notes and get a glimpse of what the upcoming season might hold.
At the end of the school year, former head coach Lonnie Hester hung up his football hat to take on the Athletics Director position. Head Coach Michael Meador was brought in from Rison High School to continue to lead the Hornets to greatness. “I think the team has responded really well to my newness,” expressed Coach Meador. “They have been eager to learn and work hard. Our strong points right now will be our defensive line. We have some guys that have size and will cause problems for offensive lines. We also have some good size on the offensive line as well.”
“We competed really hard. I thought our showing was good. Our defensive line will have some good size and be able to clog up some gaps. That should help a tremendous amount in stopping the run. We have a lot of things to get better at but we are improving.“
