The Archbishop Hannan Hawks are gearing up for an exciting 2023 football season with high hopes and a determined spirit. Under the guidance of Head Coach Corey Bordelon, who has been at the helm for three years, the team is looking to build upon their previous year's performance. The Hawks finished the 2022 season with a 4-8 overall record, but they are eager to turn things around and prove themselves as formidable competitors.
The Hawks are returning a strong core of experienced players, with 20 returning lettermen, including nine offensive starters and seven defensive starters. This continuity on both sides of the ball bodes well for the team's performance and cohesion. The offensive line, led by senior standout Nolan Byers, returns five starters, providing a solid foundation for the new starting quarterback, Brody Smith, to lead the offense effectively.
On the defensive side, the Hawks boast key players like Brennan Obey and Thomas Tyner, both three-year starters, who bring invaluable experience and skill to the team. Additionally, Corey Charleston, a two-time all-district selection, will anchor the defensive line, making it a force to be reckoned with.
Coach Bordelon is optimistic about the team's outlook for the 2023 season, citing great leadership and significant improvements compared to the previous year. With strengthened offensive and defensive lines and the emergence of young talent, the Hawks are looking more formidable than ever. The senior leadership of Nolan Byers and the impressive track record of Cartez Brown as a dual-threat running back and linebacker further fortify the team's chances of success.
In the competitive district, the Hawks are poised to make a stronger impact this season. With the core of experienced players, coupled with promising talent, they are aiming to compete at a higher level and leave a mark in the district standings.
The 2023 season looks extremely promising for the Archbishop Hannan Hawks. As they take the field with determination and talent, fans can expect to see an improved and tenacious team that is ready to take on any challenge that comes their way. With a stronger team and district compared to the previous year, the Hawks are undoubtedly a team to watch this season.
