Hooker Bulldogs Look to Win Big

Brock Kappelmann - August 12, 2022 1:50 pm

It has become commonplace at Hooker to win football games under coach Trevor Powers.  Powers is in just his sixth year as Hooker’s head coach, but with a record of  47-14, he only trails Dan Cole’s 54 wins by seven for the school record.  And this year, Hooker has size on their side on their line.  Lineman like So. Rhett Nunley (6’3″ 315 lbs), So. Peyton Parker ( 6’1″ 250 lbs), Sr. Adrian Mendoza (6’1″ 295 lbs), and  Lenny Heredia (6’1″ 265 lbs).  They have to replace golden armed Gavyn Parker who threw for 39 touchdowns and 3,208 yards and is currently moving up the depth chart at Oklahoma State.

Kleat Martens will get a crack at the quarterback position in his sophomore year.  He will be a threat to run and pass.  Other key Bulldogs are Jr. WR/DB Braxton Burge, So. WR/OLB Trace Duncan, Jr. WR/OLB Omar Gomez, Sr. WR/DB Jackson Arnold, Sr. RB/LB Fabian Castaneda, and Sr. RB/LB Lawson Lynch.  Lynch only played four games due to injury last year but was still fourth on the team in tackles.

Hooker was 10-2 last year after going 9-4 in 2020.  There are 37 Bulldogs out for football including seven returning starters on offense and six starters back on defense.  The schedule is loaded and Hooker is somewhat young but Powers says his group had a great summer in the weight room and he expects them to improve as the season goes along.  Hooker was featured during Sportsguys on Friday morning.
