Late in the fourth quarter of Hennessey’s seventh football game of 2017, there appeared to be two chances of the Eagles’ season still being alive in the second round of the playoffs:
Hennessey’s celebration after upsetting Luther in the first round of the Class 2A playoffs was strong last Friday night, but also short-lived.
It’s rare that Rick Luetjen won’t direct his team to the locker room immediately after a game as opposed to letting them linger on the field with friends and family.
A year ago, the Hennessey Eagles went into their Week 10 bye knowing they were in the playoffs, but unsure of the opponent.
Six weeks of heartbreak turned into a month of winning for the Hennessey High School football team.
Now it’s basically two weeks of waiting ... and practicing.
