Eagles and Lions showed mutual respect on the field
The Hearne Eagles are looking for that elusive respect as they move into year two of the Ricky Sargent era.
The Eagles flew high last season, winning the District Championship and advancing two rounds into the playoffs in his first season at the helm. This year after a drop in classification, the Eagles are looking for bigger and better things. After opening with the Lions of Franklin last week, they entertain the Goats from Groesbeck this Friday. The Goats were a Bi-District finalist last season after going 6-4 on the season and 4-3 in district play.
They are picked to finish fourth in district behind Grandview, West, and Teague. They return 13 lettermen, among them 6 offensive starters and 4 defensive starters.
Their biggest asset back will be big arm quarterback Ty Hale. Hale accounted for over 2500 yards last season passing, leading the Goats’ offense and he will have support from a pair of wide receivers Dylan Rand and Brandyn Candy. In one game alone he completed 48 passes so the Eagles secondary needs to be on alert, because the Goats are going to throw it all over the field
