History of the Hawks

NOTE:  We are in the process of piecing together more history about the hawks.  if you happen to have some information or would like to be interviewed for a piece on the History of the Hawks, please email:  [email protected] and reference History in the subject line.

The Hawks were founded back in the mid to late 1960's.  The founders were four men named Jim Worthington, Bill Dougherty, Tom Daley and Bill Bell.  The team was formed and called the Horsham Huddlers.  This was the area's first midget football program.  Years later, the name was changed to the Horsham Hawks.  And not too long ago, the name was expanded to the Hatboro Horsham Hawks.

Back in the 1990's, C&M Builders and the Hawks constructed a building that is now known affectionately as the Hawk's Nest.  This building and the subsequent game and practice fields are still used today by the organization.  The complex was named the Dennis Landis Football Complex and the Football Field is named Worthington Field, after the Worthington Family.  

Many local donor families and companies are to thank for their contributions back then to the Hawks.  You can see the tribute to those people by visiting the Hawks Nest and taking a look at the Wall of Fame next to the Snack Stand.  

Like all good things, the Hawks Nest and our facilities are in desperate need of a refresh.  A new campaign is underway to raise funds for upgrades.  If you are interested in donating your time or money to help the kids of this community keep football and cheer prosperous for years to come, please partner with us.

Our mission remains the same today as it most likely was back in the 1960's.  The Hawks want to be a place where families can feel a sense of belonging and pride.  And to have the type of organization that the youth (players and cheerleaders) can develop life skills and lessons that will serve them for the rest of their lives.  We want to develop talent that will stick with football or cheerleading and contribute to the High School pipeline of talent.
