WATCH: It's 'next play, next man up' for Hawley Football as the Nuggets work to get back on track
WDAY's Fall Camp Tour heads to Hawley; Horace plays first varsity home match against Wahpeton.
HAWLEY — Hawley football has been to 15 state tournaments, but the team has had it's fair share of struggles in recent years.
Hawley went 9-2 in 2018 and then an uncharacteristic 0-9 in 2019. The program has been trying to get back to its winning ways ever since. Hawley finished 5-6 last year. Now, with a talented young group, the Nuggets are eager to re-start Hawley's tradition of success.
"The last couple of years Hawley has just been down,”said senior Gavin Knutson. “There hasn't been a lot of energy just because we haven't had the greatest season. Last year we did okay, but I think this year we can pull it together and be a pretty good team.”
"They're competitive they want to win. The past doesn't matter and that’s a great attitude to have,” said head coach Peder Naatz. “If you're going to play football and have a memory and worry about what happened in the past or rest on the past, then you might as well find something else to do, because this is a game of the next play, next man up.”
