Rocks defeat Hawks, 55-32 The St. Stanislaus Rock-a-chaws and the Hancock Hawks battled each other on the new turf field at Hawk Stadium/Brett Favre Field Friday night. However, the biggest foe may have been the hot and humid conditions that proved to be miserable for both squads.
The Rocks surged past the Hawks in the second half to take a 55-32 victory on the opening weekend of the 2014 season.
SSC went straight to the air with a seven-yard toss to Corbin Blanchard followed by a 38-yarder to Patrick McRaney from Myles Brennan. Chase Rhodes got in on the action with an 18-yard toss from Brennan down to the one yardline. Aug 23, 2014, 01:32

For those of you who enjoy football as much as I do, there will not be another weekend without football until roughly February 7th give or take a day. So, let’s get this thing started! Aug 19, 2014, 20:54
