“The biggest thing for me was when I saw that at the community college he had sent over 100 players to Division I football. He knows how to get his players to the next level, and that’s very big with us and I’m real happy about that.”

Hatten, who played football at Pearl River, said that after 11 years it was simply time for a change.

“I had 11 great years there,” he said. “I actually played football at Pearl River and it’s a great place. We put up a lot of great years and put up a lot of great memories there.

“But there comes a time where you have to attack some different challenges. Everything we were going to accomplish would have been a repeat and here there is a lot of newness. With newness comes excitement and enthusiasm, and I can’t wait to get started.”
