It has begun.
The season has started for both our current Broncos and future Broncos. The Broncos put the beatdown on Troy last night in Alabama. What humidty? Troy has not had 50 hung on them since 2014, so there’s that.
Some of our recruits actually played last week, but we will cover that below. Let’s get to it!
Hank Bachmeier, QB, Murrieta Valley HS (Murrieta, CA)
Hank’s Nighthawks have, unfortunately, started the season 0-2. Fortunately, they are not in league play yet.

Last Friday, 8/31, the Nighthawks lost to Cajon 28-57. Stats for Hank in this game have not yet been posted. I’ll updated next week once I have those.
