The Horizon High School football team returns for its second year of play Friday, Aug. 19, against Gateway High School.

“This season, we expect to have a winning team,” head football coach Dennis Thomas said. 

After only one year in the running, the Hawks are entering the 2022-23 season with an older, more confident team. 

“Last year, we had no seniors, so this year, we are looking to be really successful,” Thomas said. 

When it comes to the schedule, the team is looking forward to playing against all the opponents they have yet to face on the field. 

“We respect everybody; we are just going to work hard every game one at a time,” Thomas said. “We try to take pride in how much we worked (because) we worked really hard during the offseason, we had a good summer, and we are ready to go.”
