  • Mike Says: The Eagles made three 8+ win seasons in a row after going through 5 consecutive losing seasons. They return 12 starters back from last years Area round playoff team including RB/DB Rose. Look for to go 7-3 or 8-2 in the regular season and come in 2nd or 3rd in the district. Once in the playoffs they should go one or two rounds.
  • Chris Says: Fairfield looks really good again this year.  Coach Bachtel lost a lot on the offensive line but returns several experienced starters.  Once again, they will have to earn their wins in a tough District 19-3A and once again they will flirt with a 10 win season.
