The Bearcats struggled in the 2010 season to a 1-5 district record. This year, they are 3-2 and in 3rd place all by themselves in district play, and they are thinking about the playoffs and beyond.
"Our goal is to not just be there, it's to win," Head Coach Brad Schoonmaker said. "One of the things Hawley's never had is a gold football and that would be a nice thing for these seniors and this team to be able to bring back to the school."
"First day of two-a-days we came out here just going hard," Cody Tilly said. "To know that it's finally starting to pay off, and we've got it one game away from doing something great in school history, it means alot to us."
Trevor Jackson adds, "I've been here for three years now, and playing varsity for two, and I have never seen Hawley have this situation. None of these guys that are on this team have never been in this situation. And so it's a very special occasion, that we're going to be able to play here at home, against a team we know we can beat, to go to playoffs."
The Bearcats host Forsan in their season finale. a win means they get to play in week 11.
