Coach: David Berry (22nd year)
Offensive coordinator: Brian Dove (3rd year)
Defensive coordinator: Albert Pressley (8th year)
Last year: 6-5 (4-3 Region 4-A)
Starters back: 6 offense, 3 defense
Key returners: QB/DB Chris Kearse (Sr., 5-9, 165), WR/DB Javon Dukes (Sr., 6-0, 185), OL Logan Beasley (Sr., 5-10, 240), OL Bobby Harley (Jr., 6-2, 270)
Key games: Aug. 20 vs. Barnwell, Sept. 10 at Williston-Elko, Oct. 29 at Calhoun County
Glass half full: Blackville-Hilda returns much of its offense. The defense played well last year, and defensive line is the position that has the most depth.
Glass half empty: The Hawks limped home in 2009 with three consecutive losses to end the season. Challenging county rival Williston-Elko will be a tall order.
