Auburndale (OnFocus) – It’s been a long wait for football fans and football teams to start the 2020 season. The wait is finally over, and the season is now here.
We take a look at the Auburndale Eagles with our Season Preview. We reached out to Coach Jay Anderson for some thoughts on this football season, giving us a glimpse into how the Eagles are getting ready for this year.
OnFocus: How has your coaching staff and team prepared for this season?
Anderson: Our overall numbers in the Senior and Junior classes are a concern. Depth is a concern for our Varsity team. Moving to 8-man will also be such a new experience that there is a lot of uncertainty. We were able to answer a lot of questions on Saturday but we still have depth concerns due to some early injuries and illness. To start the season against a team like Athens as a scrimmage was very helpful in getting us prepared for a team that won the 2018 8-man State Championship team in Sevastopol.
OnFocus: Season forecast – What should fans expect to see out of your team this year?
Anderson: Our main goal is to prepare and play hard. Enjoy every opportunity and have fun. We return some players with experience:
Hunter Wright – All-Conference WR moved to QB; Schuyler Gilhausen – 2nd Team All-Conference LB, RB and LB, a very intense and focused football player;Kaden Hoffman RB/WR
