Today was both an exciting and important day for the Hopewell football program.
The exciting 28-22 win over Avonworth kept Hopewell undefeated as they control their own destiny to win a regular season championship. But long term, this win was important because they not only stood toe-to-toe with a program that’s been legitimate for many years, but they beat them.
Hanging with Avonworth would’ve been a good consolation prize but Hopewell wasn’t playing for second place and pats on the back.
They were on a mission to win and to show that the future of Hopewell football is turning around and on its way back.
Here was Coach Bokor’s postgame speech to his team.
