Milton Eagles Football – There is no Off Season
Eagles Win Tune-Up Over Knights
The Eagles kicked off their 2015 campaign with a preseason scrimmage at Centennial Friday night, as Milton’s Varsity, JV, and Freshman squads finally got to hit someone other than their own teammates for a change. On a perfect night for football in front of a great fan turnout, the Varsity team beat Centennial 28-14 in three quarters of action that featured valuable reps for all of the team’s offense, defense, and special teams units. Quarterback David Moore led the offense on several long drives, throwing touchdowns passes to fellow seniors Chris Cory and Davis Johnson. The offensive line opened up big holes for the running game, including several big gains by leading rusher Jake Mansfield and touchdown runs by Stanley Derrico and AJ Beach.
The defense played a solid game as well, containing Centennial’s balanced attack for most of the game and forcing several three and outs. The defensive line had a particularly strong performance, putting pressure on the Knight’s quarterbacks all night and getting multiple sacks each from both Davis Hunt and Chase Hooper.
The JV and Freshman teams then squared off against their Centennial counterparts to wrap up a great night of football, showcasing the impressive talent that is waiting in the wings for the Eagles program in the years to come.
After an off-week next week, the regular season starts on August 28th against crosstown rival and defending Region 6 champ Alpharetta at the Eagles Nest. We are expecting a packed house, so make your plans now to arrive early and join the rest of Eagle Nation for this epic showdown!
Go Eagles! We Are ScottStrong!
