2018 High School Football Preview- North Olmsted Eagles: The Boys are Back in Town

Homecoming is an annual tradition in the United States. People, towns, high schools, and colleges come together, usually in late September or early October, to welcome back alumni and former residents. It is built around a central event, such as a banquet or dance and, most often, a game of  football, or, on occasion, basketball, ice hockey, or soccer. When celebrated by schools, the activities vary widely. However, they usually consist of a football game played on a school’s home football field.

This season the North Olmsted Eagles Football team will add a different twist to homecoming as we know it. For the first time since 2015 the Eagles will finally play on a field they can call their own.

This Friday night North Olmsted hosts Valley Forge in the inaugural game at Drive Morris Stadium as sixth year head coach Tim Brediger brings a senior-laden squad led by Bowling Green commit RB/LB Darren Anders and a very strong, defense which will feature nine returning starters. Liam Fey is projected to start at QB for the Eagles in the very tough, competitive Southwest Conference. A team not on anyone’s radar, Anders, along with a slew of playmakers and ballhawks on both sides of the ball will give teams fits and will be fun to watch. SO. LB Colin Strong along with Anders should help defensively, and if the leadership of the senior class can get through to the underclassmen, we could be talking about them in Week 10 and beyond.

The boys are truly back in town and the proud city of North Olmsted will once again have Friday night lights.
