What We Believe

    The Hickory Hawks are a Private Christian football team. We adhere to the North Carolina age rules for private schools, which states that an athlete cannot have graduated and turned 19 years old before August 1st.

   We are here for home school, private school, and public school young men who want to play football in a Christian environment. The Hawks are a non-profit organization founded for the education, training, and enjoyment of football. It is the Hawk's policy that individuals, both players and coaches, associated with the organization conduct themselves in a Christ-like manner. 

   Football is God's sport. The essentials of life are learned in football. Preparation of six to eight months is invested before a single game is played. It teaches boys that there are things worth waiting for. Their diligence and hard work is rewarded by pressing together for one goal. Boys learn to work as a team, learning to depend on others to accomplish goals that cannot be achieved alone. The hard physical work and spiritual influences of coaches and camaraderie  of  teammates make men from boys. The demands placed on these boys forces them to toughen up mentally, learning to push themselves and they find out what is takes to succeed in anything.

   The Hawks are more than football, we do our best to provide an atmosphere where Christian values are in full view. Most importantly, we want to be there for these young men. In today’s world, young men are woefully under served and over looked. We are here to change that.
