While out at the Carolina Classic 7 on 7 tournament at Mallard Creek High School this past Saturday, I ran into Hickory Ridge Head Coach Jason Seidel who was gracious enough to do an interview about what's going on with his program at Hickory Ridge. In his first year Hickory Ridge made a great run in the playoffs, falling to the eventual state champions Weddington High School. We talk about his background, his schemes, and some of his players expected to play big roles this upcoming season as they move into the Southwestern Conference for the first time.
On Wednesday 5/24/17 we followed up with meeting 5 players from "The Ridge" - QB Dylan Ratliff, MLB Connor Helm, WR Jarett Garner, WR Jalen Brooks, and C Dalton Haywood. These players are all rising seniors, and they were all a pleasure to talk to! Get to know them here:
Hickory Ridge is definitely embracing the challenge of their new foray into the 4A Southwestern Conference and we look forward to seeing them on the field this fall in action!
