The Hale Center Owls have a new spark under first-year Head Coach Adam Cummings who joins the team after a successful stint as defensive coordinator at Canyon. It's a big change for the program as the last 18 years were spent under the direction of Paul Chandler.

While losing many skill players to graduation, Cummings will have key returners in two-way all district player of the year Steven Espinosa and district newcomer of the year Caden Horton.

The Owls should benefit from experience on both the offensive and defensive lines as well as a solid secondary. Pair that with a fresh perspective from Cummings and we could see Hale Center make another playoff run.

You can catch the interview with Coach Cummings and some of his players tonight at 10 p.m.
