No Reason Not to Have High Hopes in Hooker

Brock Kappelmann - August 16, 2019 1:17 pm

There was a tenor to the conversation with the Hooker Bulldog leaders after practice Thursday afternoon.  It was the final day without pads on a hot August afternoon on the spacious practice field west of the elementary school.  Many of the Hooker players indicated their aim is to prove people wrong.  After and 11-1 season in 2018 and 12-2 in 2017, Hooker has erased most doubts.  But players indicate they hear naysayers who don’t believe Hooker can do it again after losing a strong senior class.  But Trevor Powers and the Bulldogs have run roughshod over most opponents the past two years to the tune of 23-3 with a 4-2 playoff record.

Hooker has 40 out for football at the 2A school including five starters back on both sides of the ball.  Some of the key Hooker players are Jr. RB/WR/MLB Cole Fisher, Jr. TE/DE Dillon Metcalf, Jr. WR/OLB Zeke Vega, Sr. RG/DT YObani Cano, Sr. WR/S Jonathan Miller, Sr. LG/ DT Pedro UGarte, Sr. RT/DT Efrain Castaneda, So. QB Gavynn Parker, Sr. LT/DE Ivan Figueroa, and Sr. RB/MLB Jon Ugarte.

Hooker was featured during the Sportsguys on Friday.
