Eagles will be very good once more.
I know there are better sources who follow them more closely that can elaborate.
For starters they return QB Riley Preece, HB's Blake Gamble, Cody Rice, and Trevor May. That alone would make them formidable as that is nearly 2500 total yards combined. Then you factor in HB Joe Jackson, who had a breakout Sophomore season rushing for 2000 yards and 31 TD's, and suddenly the Eagle backfield is among the best in the State returning.
Gamble will help anchor the Defense along with DL Dawson Stalker and Soph Devin Johnson. The Eagles were absolutely sensational on Defense last season but will have several holes to fill. They have a lot of young talent, but I anticipate them to take some bumps as they get on the job training.
The Eagles will have a quality OLine returning, but the big question mark on Offense will be finding someone for Preece to throw to. The Eagles lose by far their two best receiving threats in TE Noah Frisby and WR Geordan Blanton and those two guys were vital cogs to the JC Offensive machine as they forced teams to have to honor the passing game.
Blanton in general will be a tough hole to fill as he was a gamebreaker in every aspect of the word on every side of the ball. I anticipate they will lean on Blake Gamble more to pick up some of that slack.
If JC can come along on Defense and overcome their youth, and if they can find that receiving threat to force Defenses to commit a Safety and their Corners to the passing game, I would think they will be an early top contender to challenge for the Title once more in 4A.
Joe Jackson may be the next JJ Jude.
