Players to Watch
Kurt Faxon 6'2" OL/DL
Kurt is the lone senior of the Eddyville squad this season. He has experience at the middle school level, but plenty of size to succeed at the high school level. He'll be counted on to be a force on both lines. Look for Kurt to be one of the leaders of the group, as he has been on the basketball and cross country teams at the school for the past three seasons.
Brier Rariden 5'9" FB/DB
Brier is one of the few sophomores on the team. He comes from Wisconsin where he used to be a dominant hockey player, which shows he isn't afraid of a little contact. He also played football 4th-8th grade year, so he has a great amount of experience on the field.
Wayne Nephew 6'0" QB/DE
Wayne Nephew is a quarterback in training; we have high expectations of this young freshman. He is a football veteran with an exceptional football IQ. This IQ should help him make good decisions at the quarterback position. He is also an aggressive player on the defensive side.
We'll see how these three do, as well as the rest of the team this upcoming season.
