Coach: Randy Hudgins (25-20 in fifth year)

Key game: Sept. 27 at New Haven: In Hudgins' three seasons, two of the Eagles' games against New Haven have gone to overtime. The teams both tend to be inventive on offense and are not averse to taking chances. The fact they could meet again in the 4A sectional only adds to the intrigue of the regular-season showdown. This game, coming in Week 6, could be a huge indicator of which team has the better prospects for the postseason to come.

Key player: Justin Bachelder, Jr., WR; Travis Herbst, Sr., QB/DB; Drew Cummings, Jr., C/DL; Sam Dailey, Sr., RB/LB; Dakota Goldwood, Jr., OL/DL; Braden Myer, Jr., LB/RB; Drew O'Dell, Jr., WR/DB; Wayne Smith, Jr., WR/DB.

PIG SAYS: Coach Hudgins is the first to admit that last year's 5-6 record left a bad taste in his players' mouths. Injuries took a toll on the team's consistency, but they did show resilience in coming back and logging a big win over Leo in the sectional opener. This year's team has a nice mix of juniors and seniors and with Travis Herbst back at quarterback, should be ready to hit the ground strong offensively. A seven-win season is a legitimate goal.
