Congrats to Andy Reid, Specifically

2/12/2024
The big game started slowly but ended up going into OT (and almost double OT!) We are equal parts happy for Andy Ried and sad for Kyle Shanahan. But, wait, why didn't they just go for it in regulation with 6 seconds left? Plus other hi lights, Ben loves Dunkin', trick play breakdowns and Katie loved Usher. Thank you to each of you for listening and thank you for all of your support. A big thanks also to our sponsors for a great season. That's it for us this year, we'll see you for the draft. Go Hawks!!
