Football season officially kicks off Friday night
Hawks will take on West Sioux at Hawarden
August 24, 2023
The 2023 high school football season officially kicks off Friday night when Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn travels to Hawarden to take on West Sioux.
The opening opponent is a formidable one. The Falcons defeated the Hawks last year, 38-18, and were runners-up in the Class 1A state finals the past two seasons.
Hawk coach Jay Eilers has a good idea of what to expect from West Sioux.
"They do what they do. They're going to be coached extremely well," he said.. "They're going to run screens. Another thing they do a great job of is using run/pass options."
Both teams have lost much of their production...
