HUDL Communications - This is our only way to communicate with players.  Please make sure your sons are getting HUDL messages.  We have sent Hudl messages to your players throughout the fall and if they are not getting them they need to get registered, download the app & enable push notifications.  In addition, many parents download the Hudl App on their own phone and login with their students email and password so they also receive the communication.  We strongly recommend this.

Looking forward to the 2020 Season

Coaches
