SFBN High School Previews: Hickory – PIAA District 10
Hickory Hornets finished 11-1 last season and went undefeated in conference play, until they fell to Karns City in the first round of the Class AAA state playoffs. With the leading rusher of 2,200 yards gone, the Hornets will turn to junior back Hayden Gallagher and senior Nate Marchand. Both players are inexperienced, however, and have only carried the ball 51 times between the two. Senior Luke Brannan is at the helm quarterbacking head coach William Brest’s team. Hickory struggled getting a pass rush going, only recording 10 sacks in 2016. Considering both sack leaders from last season are gone, Hickory will need a new source of production.
