They say a team is only as good as its leader.  For the Pelham Hornets third year head coach Jim Morrell lead the team to five wins and a playoff birth last season.  Those five wins equaled the number of wins the team had from 2003 to 2007. 

As the Hornets enter this season sophomore Danzell Jackson will lead the way along with o-lineman Kyle Dawson.  Coach Morrell knows that last season was good but neither he nor his team are satisfied. 

Morrell said, ""last year it was getting into the playoffs, this year we want a home playoff game.  That means we have to go 1 or 2 in the region and that's a big big goal.  Anytime you get into any kind of competition you want to be on the top, its going to be tough with the teams we have in this region it's one of the toughest regions in the state."

The Hornets will take flight against Baconton Charter on the 20th of August.
