   Hawks football had their homecoming game on September 16 at 6:45 they played against the Bel Air bobcats.The varsity team did lose there game 0 – 42. The junior varsity team won their game against Bel Air 14 -6.

     The homecoming game had booths and food vendor’s setup before and during the game. There were also fireworks after the game where fans were invited onto the field to watch.

     This year the Hawks only have four home games. These games are against C. Milton Wright, Bel Air, Harford Tech, and Fallston. The Hawks have seven away games. In total they will play 11 games.

     The team is planning on working on many things to improve their game play. Senior Brooks Bondura said, “the whole team needs to work on getting locked in and focused at practice so we can have a productive practice.”

     Junior Preston Miller said, “We are trying new things to see if they will work, I think we are trying a new offense and hopefully that will work better.”

     Bondura said a good thing that happened during the game was “we kept pushing and gave it our all and we were able to shut down a good team all first quarter but in the second quarter we started to not try as hard and the game dynamic changed pretty fast.”

     Senior Nathan Santana said, “I think we need to improve on  tackling and coming together and complete the goals we have set for the season.”

     Santana added some of the team’s goals this season, “We want to complete the goal of going to the playoffs again.” Bondura agrees with Santana, “The goal is to have a home playoff game at the end of the season.”

     Santana said, “During the game we did have some positives, we had a few interceptions and some long runs for positive yards.”

     A few varsity players went to the Ravens halftime combine event and won beating South Carroll, winning 500 dollars for North Harford High. They currently have the fastest time this year at 32.47 seconds.

     Miller said, “Right after the Homecoming game a few of us went to the Ravens game, that was really cool, seeing the way our teammates play during that it was really energetic and I feel like if we can play like that during our games and just have fun. I think we could play a lot better than we are right now.”
