First year head coach Benjie Merchant will lead the Raiders against one of the best teams in MAIS Class Newton County.

Merchant is on the first level of trying to rebuild a program that has fallen on hard times over the years, including the last two seasons where they have won a combined six games.

With just 11 players on the team they had to move down to 8-man football this season, but there’s been no excuses. Even though they won’t qualify for any post season play, the Eagles have been positive and are looking forward to getting some licks on somebody else; Strider Academy.
