Hargrave Varsity Football team members recognized

William Wiebking
Hargrave Military Academy’s Fall 2013 varsity football team had ten players recognized at the State, conference and local levels for their efforts last fall. Team members were recognized for All-State, All-Conference and All-Metro honors on Tuesday, January 28, 2014 before their peers in Hargrave’s Corps of Cadets. Ten players were recognized.

The team had an impressive season as the program becomes more competitive, and it advanced many critical development issues under Head Coach Ben Paris. The team came very close to earning a winning season.

“The varsity program continues to improve as seen by these local, conference and state level awards,” Paris said. “I’m proud of the hard work and effort that these young men put in, and it has paid off with these awards.”
