Muscle Connection H.S. Football Preview: Hickory Hornets

Posted: Updated:
HERMITAGE, Pa. -

Experience at any position in high school football is a plus, but when it's at quarterback it's an added plus.

Hickory returns four-year starting quarterback Luke Brennan.  "There are some things that we can do that I trust him to do that I may not have done in the past," said veteran Coach Bill Brest. "He's got a great work ethic and we're excited about what he going to do for us."
 
The Hornets return seven starters on each side of the ball, including Will Gruber a four-year starter at receiver, Nate Marchand a full back and linebacker, Dominic Clary a lineman and Darren Mitchell a safety and wide receiver.

Brest is in his eighth season and is 76-15 with six District 10 Championships.  

He's added former YSU and NFL player Brandian Ross to his coaching staff serving as the defensive coordinator. "He's going to utilize our speed. I think this is the fastest team I've had, so we're going to use that speed to cover the field defensively," Brest said.
