The Birdville Hawks start yet another season off with Head Coach Jim Skinner, who has led the Hawks to seven consecutive winning seasons.
— At helm for the Hawks this season, will be Senior Justin Martin, who played wide-receiver last-season, to former Hawk Quarterback E.A Northey.
— Birdville is in a new district this season, with no one that really apposes any serious threat like Aledo of last-season did, while the Hawks may be in a district they may be able to take advantage of all the teams, quarterback Justin Martin thinks otherwise: “We still have to go out and take care of business no matter what team we play”, said Martin.
Birdville opens their new season out with a chance to get some payback against the team that knocked them out of the playoffs last season, Arlington Heights on Friday night:
” It’s a good feeling, but we just have to take it game by game and not focus so much as revenge but more of just another game”, said Martin when asked about his feelings of getting a chance to beat the team that ended their season-last November.
Overall, the Hawks would seem to have an easy schedule, as they have both a strong offense and a defense with some play makers. The Offense including what should be another solid running game, and another very solid passing game. This team will have the ability to rip apart defenses in their district all season long.
Key Players include: RB Xaiver Turner, QB Justin Martin, LB Nicholas Dusak, LB Sam Gooch, LB Quan Walter, and OT Joas Aguilar.
