West Meck Ready to Make Waves

CHARLOTTE, NC – The West Mecklenburg Hawks are on a mission this season. To not only prove themselves as a team to beat, but prove their doubters wrong as well.

The Hawks got out to a strong start in the beginning of last years campaign, winning four straight. The same cannot be said for their in conference play, with only one win inside the Queen City 3A/4A, they are not too too high on many preseason rankings.

But the father-son duo of the head coach and star linebacker sharing the same name want to go out on top, and it starts with the inaugural Air Traffic Classic against the powerful Olympic Trojans.

“He’s done everything I’ve asked for him to do, you know, I was hard on him but he rose to the occasion. He has done everything I have asked of him and a little bit more,” said Head Coach Beady Waddell IV.

“Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s a bunch of pressure, but I think I’m up for it you know. I ain’t gone fold,” said his son and starting linebacker Beady Waddell V.

“I think this is a week one game unlike any week one game I’ve had since I’ve been here. We are actually playing a team that you know won ten/eleven ball games last year. So you know playing them week one, with them being our next door neighbors, its a good tone setter for the season you can kind of see who you really are,” said Coach Waddell IV.
