  • Mike Says: The Eagles will rely on QB Eiland a lot this year. They do not bring back much from last years team. Look for them to go 7-3 or 6-4 in the regular season and come in 3rd or 4th in the district.
  • Chris Says: Canton's good season came to a sudden end when Gilmer drubbed them in the playoffs last season.  The Eagles bring back an average amount of veterans so earning a playoff spot in District 15-3A shouldn't be a big problem, but anytime you play District 16-3A in the opening round of the playoffs, you are probably going home early.  Look for the Eagles to win 6 games before calling it a season.

    Canton is coming in really young this year. They have pretty good size on the offensive line, and the WR are very talented! The QB coming in to this season should have many reliable WR to toss too. Keep an eye on the eagles high paced Offense. I watched them Scrimmage,and the move the ball very well! I’m looking forward to QB Eiland having a huge year! They look like a solid playoff team.
