Close games and Hagerstown football just went together in 2011.
The Tigers won twice by a point. Their final three games were all losses, but each was by fewer than 10 points.
Win or lose, that experience should be a positive for coach Scott Snodgrass and his squad.
“I think it helps us out. I think it made us stronger last year,” said Snodgrass, who is in his second season as Hagerstown’s head coach. “That’s a credit to the kids’ character. I think they see some of the teams at the top of the TEC (Tri-Eastern Conference) last year, we were right there with them.
“We have our goals set as a team and Hagerstown traditionally has had pretty solid success in the TEC. We have our goals set on winning a title. We’re going to do our best every single game.”
Hagerstown finished 5-5 last season, one year after the Tigers ran through an undefeated regular season and won a sectional championship.
