After taking a break for a week, the football team is back in action Thursday for this year’s Homecoming game. With three games left in the District 7-5A season, the Redhawks are poised to make the playoffs, with a win Thursday night at the Ford Center going a long way to help their cause.

The team hasn’t played since beating Lebanon Trail on Nov. 5.

“It was really good to take a physical and mental break,” head coach Matt Swinea said.  “Realistically, we have been going pretty solid since the first week of June. We all needed a break.”

The team takes on Princeton High School with Princeton commit Connor Hulstein helping lead the team.

“I’m very excited to play this week,” Hulstein said. “We are looking at this game as we would a playoff game. If we win this one then we have a secured spot in the playoffs for the first time in almost a decade.”
