An old Spanish proverb states, “A full stomach makes a happy heart.” Cougar fans and supporters definitely want to keep our hard-working athletes happy, so the peewee football team and cheerleaders enjoyed a breakfast in their honor before their first game on Tuesday, August 30th.
The HCS Junior Varsity football team took home a win in its first game last night against the Wayne Academy Jaguars. Our junior varsity players represent the future of the Hillcrest football program, and Cougar fans are proud of them. Congratulations, guys!
Tonight is the Cougars’ first football game of the 2016 season, and our boys are ready to “Begin with a Win” at home against the Clinton Christian Academy Warriors.
Our Senior players, especially, are ready to show that they mean business in their last first game. Quarterback Mario Asagunla says his goal for tonight is to “get the ball to the end of the field, every time I get my hands on it.” Defensive Tackle Connor McDavid is optimistic not only that the Cougars will get the win, but that “we’ll be up 27 to nothing at the half.”
With these ten young men leading the team, the Cougars are sure to have a successful football season.
