Early 90s HILLSIDE HORNETS


Early 90s HILLSIDE HORNETS

Just to clear the air I heard someone say Hillside wasn't relevant in the early 90s. I played from fall of 92-95 graduated spring of 96 so I have a first hand view of at least those four years I played jv and varsity. My freshman and sophomore years we were very much relevant. My freshman year Antonio "Runt" King was the qb. For those who don't know he is the HC now for HHS. Made a deep run in the playoffs only lost two regular season games. One of which we lost to Northern who was a POWERHOUSE by a point from a terrible call on our kickoff! My sophomore year we posted a 10-2 record. Lost to Elizabeth City's NorthEastern in the 2nd round playoffs at County Stadium by 6/7 points. Now my junior/senior years are a different story. We missed the playoffs both seasons. I know for sure the four years I played we did not play Southern jv or varsity in the regular season. Now, we did scrimmage Southern at the Pigskin Classic at Carter-Finley my junior year(94) and we beat them but like I said it was a scrimmage. Hillside has been relevant in football longer than just the 2000 era. GO HORNETS!

RE: Early 90s HILLSIDE HORNETS

Northern was a beast too! I remember RC having to travel to Durham to play! Y'all had some stacked teams back then!

RE: Early 90s HILLSIDE HORNETS

The PAC 6 Conference most definitely was VERY competitive early 90s! Orange,Person,Northern,Chapel Hill,even Riverside was good! Not to hate on Jordan but they never beat us my tenure playing at the "Side".. JV nor Varsity. But, they were competitive. I remember my 10th grade year (JV) we were playing Jordan at Jordan. It was the middle of the 3rd qtr and we were up 64-0! Reggie Love was on the sideline telling us if we score 100 he would look out for us LOL. As soon as he said it the lights of the whole stadium went out! LOL... I guess that was their impression of the "mercy rule" back then. Great times, great competitive games, and memories. GO HORNETS!

RE: Early 90s HILLSIDE HORNETS

@hornetfs so pretty much you only had 2 winning seasons in the 90s?? going off what im reading it sounds like you were only good in fall 92 and fall 93

RE: Early 90s HILLSIDE HORNETS

@mraau95 actually my four football seasons we had three varsity winning seasons. I stated I played JV my freshman and soph years. Both of those years we had winning seasons as well as my senior yr but we didn't make the playoffs my senior yr.. I got moved up to varsity durnng the playoffs my soph year. We missed the playoffs in 95 which was my senior year because they were taking the top 2 teams from the PAC 6 that year and we were tied with Person that year but they beat us in the head to head match up 6-0. The year before that there was 3 playoff berths. The deciding game was Chapel Hill which we lost 19-18 in order to make the playoffs

RE: Early 90s HILLSIDE HORNETS

I can't speak for the years after I left but I know for a fact the 96 HORNETS only won ONE game that season against Jordan High. Like I stated earlier I'm only speaking on the four seasons I played. Now if you wanna talk jv records then both my years on jv we had winning season.Freshman year we started 7-0 and finished 7-3 loosing our last 3 games. Sophomore year we finished the season at 6-4.

RE: Early 90s HILLSIDE HORNETS

Hillside definitely had good teams and a lot of talent in the 90's. I played at their then rival high school Durham High in the seasons 91-94 graduating in 95. They closed our school down in 95 with spreading the students out all over to other schools mainly Hillside and Southern. Hillside definitely had talent and good teams in the early 90's

RE: Early 90s HILLSIDE HORNETS

Yes we lost to Durham High the last time the two would ever play again. I was a junior FS. Got a pick that game LOL. Matter of fact an old teammate of mine posted the whole game on youtube.All you have to do is search Hillside vs Durham High 94

RE: Early 90s HILLSIDE HORNETS

Hornet FS I came across that game on YouTube a while ago I had fam on both sides when I was a youngin. Even though I bleed Spartan Red I still appreciate great history and Durham High Hillside was definitely a great rivalry. This is for you old HHS DHS heads lol! 1994 Hillside vs Durham High: http://youtu.be/tr4G45UTUfU

RE: Early 90s HILLSIDE HORNETS

sooo from 1990-1999 how many winning seasons did hillside have so I can make my point in the hornet 2014 post?

RE: Early 90s HILLSIDE HORNETS

quick question.

Do we realize that 1990 was 24 years ago ? And 1999 was 15 years ago ?

The 90s? Y'all dudes real old school! lmao
