2020 REVIEW

Afton is coming off an up and down season. The Eagles went 3-6 in Henry’s second season and were unable to string together a pair of wins. Injuries and inexperience plagued the team, but it also fostered growth. “This year’s sophomores matured in great strides last year,” Coach Henry says. “The experience we lacked in the skilled positions increased a great deal. Our team became a stronger, smarter group.”

2021 SEASON OUTLOOK

Despite last season’s challenge of dealing with an inexperienced roster, Henry says he saw huge improvements in his players over the course of the year and is excited to see that growth continue. However, the story of this upcoming season may be very similar. The Eagles are battling low numbers and inexperience, particularly on the line. “We will have to mature and grow quickly,” Henry says. “We will depend on a young group that will be asked to compete at high levels.” Henry identifies a high level of play as aggressive and fast. “The work ethic of this group will keep them on track for success,” Henry says.
