HARDIN-JEFFERSON HAWKS

2019 Record: 1-9 Overall, 1-3 District

4th Place in District 10-4A-II

 

The 2019 season was a bit of bad news, good news for the Hardin-Jefferson Hawks.  The bad, the Hawks were able to win only 1 game.  The good, the 1 game was enough to secure 4th place in District 10-4A-II and secure a playoff spot.  To secure another spot in 2020, coach Dwayne DuBois will rely on six returning offensive starters and four returning defenders.

 

COACHING

Head Coach: Dwayne Dubois

Assistant Coaches: Brandon Granger (Offensive Coordinator), Richard Robinson (Defensive Coordinator), Mike Fogo, Chad Guillory, Mark Humpik, Jeff Lee, Aaron Pollock, Josh Rutherford, Edd Trotter

 

OFFENSE

Six starters return to the Hawk slot-T in 2020.  Juniors Brady Trotter and Cady Jeanes will battle for the H-J triggerman position.    The new quarterback will be able to rely on an experienced backfield as senior fullback Dakota McNair (2nd team all-district, 75 carries, 449 yd in 2019), senior tailback/split end Sam Dickerson and senior halfback Sage Roberts all return.  Look for junior running back Brayden Martel, junior fullback Tyler Fountain and sophomore running backs Jude Flores and Westin Vazquez to also contribute in the Hawk running game.  Senior and three year starter Austin Samaha (14 catches, 215 yd in 2019) returns to the tight end position with sophomore Wyatt Smith standing ready to spell him.  Senior center Cody Caldwell and senior quick guard Ben Leon will lead an offensive line which will include juniors Leon Leger and Caleb Gay as well as sophomores Bryce Engleman and Rylan Morgan.

 

DEFENSE

Four starters return to the Hawk 50 defense in 2020.  Samaha will return to his defensive end position to lead a young defensive line which will get contributions from Leger and Engleman as well as senior Colby Le Blanc and juniors Colton Brown, Logan Hodges and Rylan Morgan.  Sophomore linebacker Luke McCullough and junior linebacker Keith Andrus return to lead a group of linebackers that will include sophomores Josh Samler and Wyatt Smith as well as Gay and junior linebacker Colin Burns.

 

SPECIAL TEAMS

The Hawk place kicker will be finalized during fall practice while Roberts will be tapped to do the punting.  Dickerson, McCullough, Flores and Martel will share the return duties.
