The Redhawks football team did not get the results they wanted Thursday losing 59-21 against the Wakeland Wolverines to drop the team to 0-7. 

“Obviously, we are disappointed in how we started the game,” head coach Matt Swinnea said. “We had an opportunity to score on the first play and didn’t. Then we had two punts blocked, and that’s an auspicious start for sure. Once again, we showed moments of good play, but still need to be more consistent.”

But consistency is not the only thing the Redhawks struggled with, mentality is also something that the team could work on according to sophomore Jacob Nickell.

“We had a rough start to the game, and that caused our mentality to drop from the beginning,” Nickell said. “We can’t let mistakes defeat us, and we need to focus on being more positive.”

Having a bye week this week, the Redhawks will take this time to heal and rebuild.

We need this bye week for sure,” Swinnea said. “We have some guys that need a physical break to heal up, and we all need an emotional and mental break as well. We now have a 3-game season in front of us. That is how we are approaching it.”
