The Hawks faced significant losses from the previous year, with only six starters returning to the roster. However, despite this challenge, the team remains optimistic and determined to showcase their talent on the field.

Their experience and leadership will be vital for the success of the offense.
Furthermore, the Hawks boast an array of talented running backs, including Shepard Paugh and Charles Langford. Paugh’s agility and quickness make him a valuable asset in both the running and passing game, while Langford brings a combination of speed and power to the backfield.
