Hillsboro High School Football – Team Of The Month Presented By Visit Wichita

By Matt Browning

The Hillsboro football team was chosen as the Visit Wichita Team of the Month for September. The Trojans defeated Nickerson on the road on September 9 by a score of 21-0.

In that game, Hillsboro went into halftime tied with Nickerson 0-0, but the Trojans scored two touchdowns in the third quarter to blow the game open. They added another score in the fourth quarter.

“Having graduated an amazing group of talented young men that played a vital role in our success last season, we now have to turn on attention to preparing some young guys to step up and fill those starting roles on both side of the ball,” Hillsboro coach Demetrius Cox said.

Losing so many seniors has led Cox to lean on underclassmen for leadership responsibilities, which could be a challenge early in the season. Some of the top returners for the Trojans this year are Nicholas Smith, Lane Rogers and Jacob Thiessen—all were All-District selections last season.

“Our biggest challenge this season as a team, will be overcoming the lack of leadership and

Experience,” Cox said. “If we can find leadership within us as a whole unit, we will be a pretty good team.”
