Still searching for their first win, the Redhawk football team will take on Reedy Thursday for their homecoming game. “With it being homecoming, it does attract a lot more attention,” junior Trey Laurent said.

The most anticipated game of the season for many students has finally arrived: homecoming night as the Redhawks take on Reedy Thursday at the Ford Center beginning at 7:00 p.m.

“I hope that they, you know, as always, come out and play hard,” head coach Matt Swinnea said.  “I think there is some excitement to [HoCo], HoCo really is not so much for the players, but it’s for the fans and for the alum that show up for the game, and obviously, we wanna play well for them.”

Rehdawk homecoming games are known to bring one of the biggest turnouts of the season, which can add stress to some players. 

“It’s just another football game, but with it being homecoming, it does attract a lot more attention,” junior Trey Laurent said. “And other things which can add pressure to some people.”

The team is be facing the same problem as last week, injuries with just  28 healthy athletes for Thursday’s game. 

“The odds are stacked against us, we have had a lot of injuries lately,” Swinnea said. “So actually, you’re gonna have a lot of guys that are gonna be playing in some spots for the first time, and they just go out and play hard and fight to the finish.”
