Football Preseason

22 young and determined players joined the the Hargrave Football preseason. Coaches started with the basics teaching fresh recruits how to assemble pads, strap helmets, and work as a team. During challenging 3-a-day practices, cadets learned how to play their positions and bounce back from tough plays while enjoying the game of football.

With a pick-up of 8 additional players, 30 cadets traveled to play the Fuqua football team for their first contest against outside opponents. Hargrave players exceeded the coaches’ expectations by filling numerous roles and playing with incredible passion. Due to injury, one wide receiver ended up playing running back and quarterback. Likewise, another receiver ended up on the offensive line. Players really stepped up by showing the maturity and composure developed during preseason.
