Looking to come out on top, the Redhawks work in practice to improve weaknesses shown in their last game. The team is tied with Memorial High School in District 7-5A but feel they have the upper hand.

The Redhawks are set to take on the Independence Knights on Thursday at 7:00 p.m. for the annual Homecoming football game at Toyota Stadium in an effort to end the team’s 14 game losing streak.

“Independence will be a great challenge for us,” Head Coach Matt Swinnea said. “They have an aggressive attacking defense and an offense that can put up points in a hurry. At the end of the day though, it will be about us eliminating turnovers and executing at a high level.”

Starting the 2019 season with three non-district games, junior Will Ashmore is up for the start of District 5-5A play.

“I expect a hard-fought game, Independence has a great team and they have a lot of talent so i’m excited for the challenge,” Ashmore said. “I think it’s important that as a team, we cut down on mistakes and do a better job of maintaining momentum.”
