The Hayden football team, coming off a 2 – 6 record in 2013, will travel to Winterhaven, CA on Friday to take on the San Pasqual Valley Warriors in the season opener for both teams. The Warriors finished with a 4 – 3 record last season.

The Lobos return eight starters from last year’s team – four each on offense and defense. Head coach Matt Waddell expects returning starters Jacob Manriquez, Chris Rabago, and Ezkiel Boltarez to be impact players in 2014.

Waddell has certain expectations for the players in the Lobos program.

“(I want them) to become better student’s in the class room,” he said. “(I expect) them to be very disciplined and respectful to others.”

Working hard on and off the field, refusing to give up, being disciplines, and focusing on their responsibilities on the field will lead to success each week, according to Waddell.

Friday’s game is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.
