The sting is back

November 15, 2012

Back in mid-August, there were at least three good reasons to think the 2012 football season would be nothing special at Blackwell:
• Two straight losing seasons, including a 1-9 rec-ord in 2011 where the only victory came by forfeit;
• A lack of senior leader-ship, with just three of them on the roster;
• The growing pains of adjusting to an all-new coaching staff.
Yet three months later, the Hornets are still going to practice and preparing for their first playoff game in four years.
