That was the chant Friday night as we won Hoggard’s first ever Eastern State Championship in football. So next Saturday we are headed to the SHIP (State Championship) in Winston Salem at Wake Forest University. Earning the trip was not easy. Southern Durham came to play and they had a very fast defense that made scoring a little tougher than the Vikings are used to. Our defense was amazing and held the visiting Spartan’s at bay for all but one series late in the game. Final score was Hoggard 21 – Southern Durham 6.
So this is the final week of practice and this is for all the marbles. Our opponent is a very good Mt. Tabor team that just happens to be from Winston Salem. They are 12-3 and have smashed all of their playoff oppenents. They look good on film but so has all of the teams that we have played so far. I can’t wait! More later.
