“We were down 5 starters,” Hudson coach John Davi said. “We definitely had some guys step up and play really well. It was a strange season for sure, not knowing if or where we were playing until the last minute.
“Overall I think we had a lot of success and learned a lot. I’m happy that the seniors got to play football. I’m looking forward to the fall with a bunch of our best athletes returning.”
Hudson finishes with a 4-3 overall record.
