Getting a Handle on Hugoton

Brock Kappelmann - August 22, 2019 2:23 pm

The Hugoton Eagles are looking to turn the corner in 2019.  They showed signs of promise last season.  They won four of their last six after an 0-3 start and knocked off once invincible Holcomb.  Nick O’Laughlin enters his second season as head coach after a 4-5 season in 2018.  The Eagles have 47 out for football and five starters return on both sides of the ball.  Hugoton is particularly strong in the junior and sophomore classes.

Some of the key Eagles include Sr. OL/DL Javier Lopez, Sr. RB/MLB Austin Dale, Sr. RB/DT Ivan Valles, Sr. WR/DB Trevor Bogan, Sr. C/DE Michael Mendoza, Jr. RB/OLB Riggs Martin, and Jr. QB Sawyer Harper.

Hugoton was featured during the Sportsguys on Thursday morning.
