Practice Tour: Wilmington Hoggard

Although the team got off to a rocky 2-4 start a season ago, head football coach Craig Underwood's Hoggard Vikings rebounded and capped off the 2016 campaign winning six of their last seven contests which included a first-round victory over Greenville Rose
 
With a strong core of starters returning including quarterback Josh Jones who passed for 2,276 yards, and last years defensive leaders Christian Hollar, Reece Moulton, and McKenzie Frazier, 2017 is shaping up to be a very solid year for the fans on Shipyard Blvd. 
 
The Vikings will compete once again in the Mideastern 3A-4A conference and they begin the season ranked 19th in the Dynamic Fitness Preseason Top-25 Power Rankings
