Good for him

They did you a favor son. Now go play for a winner. We like losing it's what we do best. Try somewhere that has homecoming on a football field. Go hawks.......

girls are best

As the men's season slips away, get out and watch the Hawk women play. They are nore aggressive, more focused, more mature, more unified, and best of all, twice as entertaining. True story!

DUB Basketball

It has been a tough stretch for the Hawks. Losing like they have lately often leads to some dissension and finger pointing on a team. With a team with so many Freshmen this can be compounded. Large egos within the ranks often lead to bruised egos, especially when one finds out that playing against This type of competition is a lot harder than it was in high school. But, I hope the Simmons Kid works through it, listens and restores himself the confidence of His teammates and coaches.
