Brian Hodnett is entering his second year as the head coach of the Haskell Indians.
The first year went really well and ended in the playoffs.
Most programs would say that’s great and expect more in the second season.
Haskell and coach Hodnett are not different.
He is depending on his experienced players to help lead the way to that improvement.
Head coach Brian Hodnett said, “Our seniors and our juniors now can coach sophomores and freshmen, and help be coaches out there. They have a better understanding. Last year, they were learning it at the same time so that’s what we ask of our upperclassmen in our program is to teach those younger kids. Show them how to practice, show them what this looks like.”
Josue Hernandez said, “We’re showing these sophomores and freshman all that we know. I hope we’re good leaders to them.”
Reed Roewe said, “It helps a lot having people that have been on the Friday night football field, and have been playing for a while. We just teach these younger kids how it’s done and tell them what we know.”
The Indians hit the road to Quanah on Friday to start the 2018 season.
