Eight teams will kickoff the high school football season five weeks from tonight.
We are previewing 40 schools in 40 days.
The Fearless 40 focuses on the Mayflower Eagles tonight.
The Eagles won nine games last season including a 35-19 victory over Greenland in the opening round of the playoffs, but Mayflower didn’t stop there.
They got a little revenge on Harding Academy by beating the wildcats in the playoffs after suffering a regular season loss.
The Eagles season came to an end the next week against episcopal.
This season Mayflower has three good runningbacks and an o-line with experience but Head Coach Todd Langrell says they have a lot to replace.
“We lost 17 seniors to graduation last year.” says Head Coach Todd Langrell, “We’ve got some kids that come from basketball that hadn’t played since junior high and they’re going to have to step in and help us. We had Adam Dycus who was a three year starter all state quarterback and we’ve got a kids that hasn’t played since junior high so he’ll be expected to step up and lead his team. “
