To an outsider, 2022 might look like a retooling year for the Hico Tigers. But second-year HHS coach Todd Swearengin doesn’t necessarily see it that way.
Despite graduating 14 of 21 lettermen from last year’s squad, including seven offensive and eight defensive starters, Swearengin feels his Tigers are equipped to build on the success they enjoyed in 2021, when their 5-6 record marked Hico’s highest win total since 2017.
With loads of first-time starters and new play-callers on both sides of the ball, the youthful Tigers will face a steep learning curve. But even with just one senior on his roster, Swearengin is confident in his team’s willingness and ability to compete.
