If you are like me, I’m proud of those players that are currently playing for the undefeated Hononegah Indians (5-0 overall and 5-0 in the NIC 10) and those players that have laid the foundation for the program. With high school football at the halfway point and college football nearing the halfway point, let’s look at some former Indians and how they are doing on the college gridiron.
