It is that time of year again. Time to officially begin the 2013 Football Season and it all begins on May 6th. Bear in mind that exact dates and times can vary but spring practices will start Monday May 6 and go through Friday/May 17 or Saturday May 18 (depending on coach’s schedule, weather, etc.). In general, the players will be reporting early in the morning for positional meetings and practicing in full gear in the afternoons, after classes. The hard work began right after the 2012 Season concluded and this is an exciting time for the players/coaches. Every spring the players ratchet-up the intensity, so come out to watch!
The Rivals Camp Series came to Atlanta (Marietta High School) this weekend and the Milton Eagles sent seven elite players to this event. The eighth camp in the series was held on April 7th and was attended by some of the best players from around the southeast (GA, AL, FL, TN, SC).
Attending from MHS were; (left to right) AJ Bush, Quarte Sapp, Chris Purpura, Micco Brisker, Treyvon Paulk, Chauncey Hazelton and Nick Wilson.

Milton ‘Iron’ Eagles, 2013
Football and the preparation to compete, are year ’round endeavors. The work toward the next season begins as soon as the previous season ends. Since the conclusion of the 2012 season, the work in the weight room started. On Saturday, the results were evident.
On Saturday, March 16, Coach DeCristofaro and the Milton Eagle Coaching Staff, took a select group of weightlifters to compete in the annual Georgia High School Athletic Coaches Association (GACA) state weightlifting championship for AAAAAA and AAAAA class schools. The event was held at Lambert High School.
At the end of a long day, the hard work paid off and the Milton ‘iron’ Eagles took second in the state (class AAAAAA).
Congratulations to the team, Coach D and all the coaches who work with all of the players!
We will post individual results as soon as we have the official listing (later this week).
