Darnell Davis is the new football coach this year, and he has returned to the Hilltop after graduating 7 years ago. Davis started playing football in 7th grade at Hackley and “loved it”. He played running back and safety for four years for “the legendary Coach Pick”, then moved on to play college football at Muhlenberg College. Now, as a 25-year-old, he decided to return to “[his] roots, which is football”. He has been welcomed back with open arms, especially from the teachers who taught him when he was a student. Davis, though young, has already gained the respect and trust of his colleagues, which allows him to use the drills and training that he learned in college to “fine tune [the football player’s] technique.”
