ELIZABETHTOWN, NC (WWAY) — The East Bladen Eagles came within a whisker of advancing to the third round of the high school football state playoffs last year. This season the Eagles appear to be even better team than the one Robby Priest had in 2013. The coach even admits it.
“We expect to be good. We have a lot of returning players. We finally have some depth. We expect some good things, but you never know what you’re going to get when you’re dealing with teenagers. We finally have some skills people. We have a little bit of speed there. It’ll be a little different from what we’ve had the past two years. We finally have the speed to keep up with a lot of people now.”
