Pflugerville Henderson Hawks: One Name is all you need to worry about: Kenny Williams, a FREAK OF an Athlete (Running Back), who- alone, gave Lake Travis a scare last week. Lake Travis only beat Pflugerville Hendrickson by 10 points (score was 34-24)- not too shabby considering LT usually beats teams by like 70 points.
The Hawks are very well coached and can play some football. They may not have won a game yet, but to play with Lake Travis- that alone should tell you something. They were beat by Vista Ridge during week 1, but I don't think it was because they couldn't. I think they may have overlooked them and were focusing on LT instead. (at least maybe their athletes were)
The Hawks Head Coach is Chip Killian. He and Josh are actually pretty good friends and they used to coach together at Cedar Park. Chip came to CP with Coach Weaver and when Chris Ross took over, he stayed on for one year, then went to Pflugerville Hendrickson as an Assistant Coach and he became the head coach the same year that Josh got the Rouse job. Coach Killian is a really good guy and Josh has a lot of respect for him. Chip is a defensive coach, just like Josh and in a way, they are similar to each other.
Kenny Williams is by far their top athlete, he went for 268 yards last week along, with 2 breakaways that resulted in touchdowns of 89 and 39 yards. He also recovered a fumble that resulted in a 65 yard touchdown. The Texas Tech athlete plays both ways, so we can't afford to make many, if any, mistakes. He went for 237 yards in the 2nd half alone. In 2009, He went had 1700 yards and had 20 touchdowns racked up at the end of the season.
As far as the rest of the team goes, they have 30 Returning starters this season. In 2009, they went 2 rounds in the playoffs.
Josh has told me 3 times what offense they run, but I still can't remember. I am going to go out on a limb and say that they PROBABLY run a 4-3 defense, specifically because that's what we ran at Cedar Park (CP no longer runs a 4-3, they run a 3-4 I believe)
They will be a tough team to beat, but like us, they have problems they need to fix and adjustments they need to make. Hopefully we can adjust ours before they adjust theirs! We need to execute better and do a better job wrapping up our tackles, and we have to play TOUGH on defense and hopefully get good field position to allow our offense to score as many points as possible. (this is my opinion anyway:)
Its going to be a fun game, so come out, wear our colors, get some noise makers and get ready to cheer and make some RAIDER NOISE!!!
