The 2013 Hawks enter this season looking to defend their three consecutive Superbowl titles and to make it four straight, something that has never been accomplished in Rhode Island high school football history. The season kicked off this past Friday at home against St. Rays, with the Hawks convincingly putting away the Saints, 32-8.
The green and gold are the early season favorites, since most of last year's key players return: quarterback Pat Gill, receivers Mike Scarcella and Lee Moses, in addition to running backs Power Kanga and last year's Superbowl MVP, Remington Blue. In the early-season coaches' poll that was revealed last week, the Hawks were ranked first, followed by Cranston East and archrival LaSalle. That key matchup between the Hawks and the Rams will take place November 17th, at 7pm at Lasalle. Can our guys successfully defend their three belts to make it four straight? Only time will tell, but things are certainly looking bright for the Hawks.
