  • Mike Says: The Eagles had a huge turnaround in wins last season. This year it may be difficult to get to that 9 win mark again. The offense will feature WR Askew and FB Thompson. The defense will be a team strength with DB's Peralta and McCoy leading the way. Expect them to finish the regular season at 6-5 or 5-5 and struggle to get that last playoff spot with Jefferson and White Oak.
  • Chris Says: Gilmer Harmony folks were ecstatic about last season's showing, but it won't be so easy this time around.  They bring a lot of talent back on both sides of the ball, but Tatum, Jefferson and Troup won't be caught sleeping this time around.  It is realist that they could put together finish with 7 wins and still miss the playoffs.  This season is going to be a great test to see if Coach Wilson's squad is ready to compete at last season's level again.
