Despite a number of injuries, the Coosa Eagles advanced to the GHSA playoffs during their 2018 season.
Although it began with a rough start, after losing the first five games of the season, the Eagles went on to win four of the last five games of the regular season. This included defeating region foe, Gordon Central, for the number four spot in Region 7AA.
For the first time in 41 years, the Eagles had earned a playoff berth in consecutive years.
The Coosa Eagles will be a very energetic, but they have a young team in 2019. “We have some big shoes to fill from last year’s team,” says Head Coach Todd Wheeler. “After the graduation of guys like Sean Brown, Gavin Hughes and Jalen Hodge, we lost a lot of our offensive, defensive and special teams’ stats leaders.”
The Eagles will be looking for a total team effort in 2019. This season’s offense will look to gel and light the scoreboard up more often than the 2018 team. The defense looks to improve, after the 2018 unit gave up an average of four touchdowns a game, while Coosa’s offense only scored 24 points a contest.
With the top half of the schedule being bouts with Trion, Darlington and Mt. Zion before the bye-week, Coosa strives to have a better start to the season than in 2018. Also, reaching the playoffs for the third consecutive season would be an amazing achievement for the Eagles in 2019.
