Former Hokes Bluff High football player Will Wagnon visits his alma mater for the Eagles’ Homecoming game tonight (Oct. 11). 

Wagnon, however, will be wearing the Red and White of Munford. He is in his fourth season as head coach of the Lions and has a senior-laden and very good team.

“They’re the best team we’ve played so far,” Hokes Bluff coach Mike Robertson said. “They’ve got the most talent of any team we’ve seen in some time. They’re going to be tough to match up with.”

Even though winless, Robertson’s team still has a good attitude and is hoping for an upset.

“We’re showing improvement in a lot of areas,” Robertson said. “Last week, we had a 16-play, 8 1/2-minute drive for our touchdown. We had a couple of other drives going too but they stalled out.”

Last week against Cleburne County, Chase Beggs rushed for 79 yards on 20 carries.

Cole Williams completed 5-of-10 passes for 35 yards, while Phillip Ward had two catches for 25 yards. Chase Pope finished with 12 tackles, followed by Zach Robertson with 11.
