After breaking their 30 year playoff drought, Bruceville-Eddy has to figure out how to make the postseason a program expectation.
Head Coach J.B. Chaney is in his fifth year as the man in charge, and after capturing everyone's hearts as last season's Cinderella, the Eagles are back to work.
The bad news, Bruceville-Eddy lost 15 seniors. But, they also dropped down to 2-A, and Chaney believes this is one of the most talented teams he's had.
The Eagles got into the playoffs by winning their final two games last year. So now, the team wants to establish consistency over a season.
"We've been working hard, putting in more time in than ever and that's everyone's goal is getting there. Keeping the tradition going and getting back to the playoffs," Ellis Warrick, a senior wide receiver, said.
"We're excited cause it's more apples to apples. We were playing people the last couple of years that had a varsity and a JV and freshmen and 4 junior highs. We were at the bottom of 3A. Now, we're matched up with schools our size and at least it's apples to apples, and we have a chance. So as long as we have a chance, we're excited." Bruceville-Eddy Head Coach J.B. Chaney said.
The Eagles are also breaking in a new quarterback before this season's campaign.
They hope to have everything set before starting their 2-A schedule against Rio Vista.
