The Hearne Eagles weren’t the likeliest pick to be the last team standing by any of the experts around the county, including myself, but here they are the only remaining team out of a group of six that entered with a chance still open to win a State Championship.
It was true they were dropping down in classification but being an old coach, class doesn’t play the game, players do and you can have players at any level of the game from Class1A to 6A. So although on paper it might have looked like an advantage there are good teams at all levels of the game.
These Eagles are living proof that if a team can develop chemistry on the floor and establish a method of play, they can be highly successful. If you have some talented players, which the Eagles do, then you can be more than competitive you can be one of the top teams in the State.
Hearne has fought all year for the recognition that is now coming their way. The players have bought into the philosophy that Coach Daily has adopted and their execution has gotten better as the season moved along.
