Does anyone know anything about this team. After going to their website,the Black Knight faithful may be in for a long ride home. The Hawks were the 2016 NACA National Champions last year and ranked #2 in the NATION for independent football .The only common team to the SMC is the Carolina Gladiators.. Hickory beat them 58-6

Haven't seen them this year. Last year they were a talented athletic group
The coach is good and has a very deep playbook

Hickory Hawks loss to West Iredell pretty bad. It took West Iredell til Overtime to beat N.Iredell. North Iredell is awful and hasnt won a game in almost 2 yrs. If Its close between Robbinsville and Hickory Hawks, I would be shocked!!

Because of several factors. Travel, JV availability, and larger classifications not wanting to run the risk of losing to a 1A team. Realignment hurts also.

Most schools that play each other on varsity also play each other on Thursday. The SMC doesnt have JVs. Therefore a school that plays a SMC team most also find another team to play their jvs.

Bigger schools don't want to play us SMC teams becuase they are scared to get beat. Hurts their playoff chances. SMC conference is one of the best in the state and we consistently have to play schools from out of state or these teams. Atleast local 2a and 3a schools are willing to book 2-3 games per season.

It's not JVs. Its really called junior high football. That's why we can only play other SMC teams. We all refer to it as JVs, myself included.

That is the point i was making. MAny coaches won't schedule a game unless they get a JV game as well. Since the SMC plays 7-9th they can't play other schools who don't.
