Coming off a victory in their first game of the season, the Hawks hoped to build upon their early season momentum with a victory on the road against John Cooper. The Hawks came out strong with a seventy-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Max Schieferdecker (’18) to junior running back Harry Crutcher (’19), giving them an early 8-0 lead. Later in the half, however, the Hawks gave up a big lead due to turnovers and penalties and exited the half up by just three points.

In the second half, the Hawks eventually pulled ahead thanks to solid defense and some very big plays on offense. The MVP on offense was Harry Crutcher (’19) with three touchdowns. The Hawks also had touchdowns scored by junior Jimmy Garda (’19) and Jack McGuire (’19), McGuire’s first varsity touchdown. The efforts on the defensive side of the ball, including Mike Garnett’s (’18)
three forced turnovers, allowed the opportunity for the offense to be in prime position to come back and win the game in a thrilling comeback.

The Hawks season is looking optimistic and the entire team is determined to make this season better than the last. Although they lost to Trinity Valley on the road after the John Cooper game, they are still in good spirits, as Trinity Valley is one of the best teams in the SPC. They can easily bounce back from the loss to crush all other teams in its way, which they are determined to do.
