Hoggard Names Football Stadium

        WILMINGTON—Hoggard High School has named its football stadium in honor of its current head football coach.

        The facility is now known as Scott Braswell Stadium.

        Braswell came to Hoggard from Charlotte’s Olympic High in 1997 and has rolled up 146 victories and a .750 overall winning percentage during his tenure at Hoggard.  That includes 10 conference championships, two Hoggard players who are currently in the National Football League, and a 2007 North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 4-A football championship.

Braswell has been the only Hoggard head coach in the 13-year history of the Vikings’ on-campus stadium and also currently serves as the school’s athletic director.  The ceremony was held prior to the Friday night game between Hoggard and Purnell Swett, a game which Hoggard won by a score of 45-14.
