Harrison is looking to make some noise in 2020 with new Head Coach Moe Sutton

The Harrison Football team has seen better years. Since 2017, the Warriors have posted a 4-26 record and did not win a game in 2019.

"Last year wasn't really that good I think it would be great for the sophomores, juniors, and seniors to step up this year. It's motivation for us to step up this year," said Harrison Sophomore WR/CB Pagerick Wade.

"A new staff is coming in, so I believe that we can all come as one and be a better team and potentially get more wins and be better than that record 4-26," said Harrison Junior WR Jahni Summers

But the Warriors believe a resurgence is on the way and will be led by one of their own, 1998 grad Moe Sutton will take over on the sidelines this season.

Coming back to my alma mater does mean a lot to me and also my staff, I've got about 8 guys that are also Harrison alums that also means a lot. It's a brotherhood and it means something to us so we're going to put our all into it and see what happens, said Head Coach Moe Sutton.

"It means a lot because we can learn from him. So him just walking the same footsteps as I did then that shows a lot," said Summers.

Sutton is already making an impact, the number of kids coming out to play Football this year have tripled in comparison to last year.

"You have to think about grades and the semester and things like that. I don't know I wasn't here maybe some kids were put off the team for discipline reasons and what not, but it's a good start for us and we'll try to keep all 60 if possible by the end of the season," said Sutton.

"People are coming out to play like because they have seen and heard that there will be a change and more people just want to get together, be better and just want to win to be honest and I think that since everybody found out we've got a new coach they want to try it out and have fun," said Summers.
