This rating is due to the culture HG creates with positive coaching, 2nd to none training and instruction and impressive results on the field. HG earned a 1st place finish at every age group in the KVBSA league in the 2018 season. As a program, our teams won 5 state championship titles (8U, 9U, 10U, 11U & 13U) and 5 National Championship titles (8U, 10U & 11U).
