Eagles have blue collar mentality

October 31, 2011

When it comes down to it, Hebron may not blow you out the water on the court, but they’ll definitely give everything they have for four quarters.

The Eagles come into the season with a new head coach and without a star player, yet Tri Nason believes his team has that blue collar work ethic.

“I put them through the test last week,” he said. “We had days where we ran amounts and I was surprised they were making it through but they would line back up and the next one they wouldn’t slack off even if they we’re getting tired. I preach to them, if you push through it now, it just gets easier.”

The Eagles are coming off a pretty successful 2010, making it to the state playoffs before falling in overtime to Heidelberg 51-44. The Eagles relied heavily on Carlton Clay, who easily could score 30 points a night and was obviously the go-to-guy all season long.

This year will be different. Now they will have to fine their own identity, while at the same time, sharing the load on offense.
