Spring football

Jimmy Skaaland, Quarterback Pete DiNovo prepares to lead the Eagles to another strong season.

 

Spring is officially here, and for most students this means afternoons at the pool or beach but for varsity football players it means getting to put the pads back on.  The Eagles will spend this spring getting prepared for the toughest schedule of any team in the county for next season.  Sophomore, Pete DiNovo had an outstanding season this year at starting quarterback and will be returning to lead the team this spring against Osceola.  Though he has lost his favorite wide receiver, Tyler Higbee, who will be playing at Western Kentucky University next year, to graduation he will still have plenty of targets including junior tight end Steve Buric.

                The Eagles will also be led by another young player, Artavis Scott, who proved his skill last season by not only making the varsity squad as a freshman but by being a key playmaker throughout the season.  This includes the very first time he touched the ball, returning the opening of the first game this past season 90 yards for a touchdown.

                Two of the Eagles big juniors, right tackle Keaton Cole and tight end Steve Buric, have both been invited to a football camp this summer at Boston College.  Both plan on attending.  “I’m looking forward to practicing in a college atmosphere and learning from college coaches and players,” said Keaton Cole.
