Hugoton Aims to Flex on 2022 Opponents

Brock Kappelmann - August 19, 2022 6:55 am

Hugoton’s football team is going back to what best fits their personnel and their coaching philosophy.  The Eagles will run the flex bone on offense in an effort to utilize a strong offensive line and give touches for multiple running backs.  Plus, this is the offense second year head coach Jay Witt and offensive coordinator Jose Licon are most adept in coaching.  The seniors used this offense in middle school as well.

The Eagles were 4-5 last year and have 51 out for football including seven starters back on defense and six starters returning on offense.  Some of the key Eagles are Sr. FB/OLB/LS Adam Mendoza, Sr. WR/CB Luis Cruz, Sr. RT/ILB Cade Reynolds, Sr. FB/MLB Kaden Jackson, Sr. WR/OLB Zackary Zambrano, Sr. LG/DT Mathew Garcia, Sr. WR/OLB/P Zevin Littell, Sr. OG/DT Christian Ornelas, Sr. RB/CB Santiago Macias, Jr. QB/OLB Isaac Martin, and Jr. C Sebastien Gonzalez.

This is Witt’s 44th year in coaching football and his sixth year in Hugoton.  The 3A Eagles are in a district with Holcomb, Scott City, Colby, and Goodland.  The top three from that group make the playoffs.

Hugoton was featured during Sportsguys Friday.  The Eagles will be On the Sidelines at Billy’s September 1 at 6pm on 102.7.
