OFFENSE

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.

DEFENSE

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.
