Few people not on the Heritage football team expected big things from the Hurricanes this year. Four years ago, they didn't win a game. George Massenburg took over as head coach and it's been steady improvement ever since. They did make the playoffs last year, but were still an afterthought entering this season.
Saturday they travel to Dinwiddie for the state semi-final in Group 4. Once again they will be underdogs. Dinwiddie has outscored the competition 132-0 in the playoffs. After hearing coach and his players in our preview, we wouldn't want to count them out just yet.
