Having had a week to rest, the Redhawks football team is ready to get back on the field Thursday to take on the Centennial Titans at the Star in District 6-5A Division I play.

“By this time of the year pretty much everybody is playing hurt, you know its a physical game, and so just taking an opportunity for everybody to heal up, that was big,” head football coach Matt Swinnea said. “We spent time getting better at a few things we need to get better at and have been working on Centennial, so just trying to get ready for them this week.”

Searching for their first win, Swinnea believes that the Redhawks biggest strength will be their fight.

“I mean we are hungry to win you know,” Swinnea said. “It has been a long first part of the season, and you know we have all rested up. So it’s just an opportunity to get out there and compete. They need to believe in themselves and that they have the opportunity to win.”

With Centennial only having one district win, sophomore Orin Gee believes that the Redhawks have a good chance of coming out on top.

“I feel like it is going to be a dog fight,” Gee said. “They’re not better than us, so we are going to come out on top fosho that. Staying positive during the game is key, real talk I know. I know that if I’m not positive, my teammates will feed off that so staying positive is really important.”
