Christian Life has 23 wins and three playoff appearances in the last three years of football, but the Eagles will look different this year with senior classes gone and a new head coach at the helm.
Bill Shepard takes over the CLS program after Tony Ambrogio left for Jefferson to become an assistant coach. Despite the daunting task of playing with smaller numbers and a lack of depth, the Eagles are preaching quality over quantity.
"I think we have a lot of heart out here. These kids want to play football," says senior Aaron Jacobs. "We all come in and work hard every single day no matter the numbers. No matter what people say about us, we come out and work hard everyday."
The Eagles turn the page to a new era on Friday at home against Alden-Hebron.
