Hawks stay perfect with win over Flint River

The Newnan Times-Herald

Heritage first-year football coach Micha Alba’s career is off to a fast start.

The Hawks’ new coach is 2-0 after back-to-back victories.

He can thank his defense for part of the success.

Heritage has pitched back-to-back shutouts, keeping Windsor off the scoreboard to open the season last week, and holding off Flint River on the road Friday night with a 14-0 decision.

Offensively, the Hawks were led by quarterback Hays Burns who threw a pair of touchdown passes to Brandon Scruggs.

After going undefeated in the regular season last year, the Hawks haven’t lost a regular-season game since 2015.

Heritage returns home next week against Terrell Academy.
