In his first season as head coach of Hermon High School football, Kyle Gallant led the Hawks to their best season in the school's seven year history of varsity football.

Hermon finished 6-2 in the regular season and lost in the Class C North playoffs.

Gallant welcomed 46 players to training camp this week with high expectations.

"This community loves football. It continues to get better and better", says Gallant. "This is one of those communities that, if done right, football will thrive."
