The 2018 season ushered in lots of changes for the Eagles. First there was a new coach in Bobo Daniels and his style of play. Then the Eagles had to break in a new quarterback and Kolby Burgess (6-0, 190, Jr.) won the battle for that spot. And then the Eagles also had to move up a class to 2A. But even with all of those deviations, Morris still found a way to make the playoffs with the most wins in a season in recent history. And with seven starters back on offense, things are looking even brighter for the Eagles this season. Besides Burgess at QB, running back Jerry Ramos (5-9, 180, Jr.) and receivers Kolby Adams (5-7, 160, Jr.) and Daxton Metz (6-1, 170, Jr.) are all skilled players with a valuable year of experience behind them. In the line a couple of seniors will provide more stability and team leadership in Kaleb Stone (6-0, 260) and Martin Sheared (6-2, 220). “We’ll play up-tempo on offense and keep the defense guessing,” Daniels said.


Things are not as rosy on the defensive side of the ball for the Eagles with just four starters back — all of them playing both ways. Adams and Metz will be in the defensive backfield, Burgess will reprise his spot at linebacker and be joined by Ryan Allred (5-9, 160, Jr.) and Sheared will anchor the defensive front along with Topley Powell (6-2, 200, So.) in the Eagles 4-3 defense. “Physical and fast is how we will play defense and we will look to create more turnovers than last year,” Daniels said.
