New Eagles Look To Continue Tradition

Eight months after the Eagles loss at state, Tatum is back at work with their last game in mind.

"We left with a loss," offensive lineman Blair O'Neal said. "We never like to lose."

"We use that as motivation, to work off of it, to work harder and build off that upset," defensive end Stedmond Coleman said.

The Eagles are also back in class 3A after two years in 2A.

"Our district is pretty hard," defensive end Matt Brown said. "We've got Chapel Hill, Gilmer, Spring Hill and all those other teams. We don't want to overlook anybody. Everybody is pretty much equal."

After winning state in 2005 and 2006, a new group of Eagles will have to fill some big shoes.

"Everybody we have is fighting for a spot," head coach Andy Evans said. "We've got a few starters back but not many.We've got about four or five kids we are working out at quarterback. All of them are working hard and we'll just see what happens."

"We've enjoyed the ride the last three years," Evans said. "I don't think anyone wants to miss out on that."

    With the smallest enrollment in District 17-5A, and really across the entire classification, Lindale could use that as an excuse for a sub-par season. But under defensive coordinator, turned head coach Chris Cochran, that won't be the case.
