Fourth-year head coach Kris Ernst has 8 returning starters from a playoff squad last year. Ernst thinks this team will be strong again, but he knows that the CMAC is brutally tough.
The Eagles will likely be undefeated when they go to Fulton in week 4. After that, the slate gets tougher with road games at Dansville and Potterville. But they do get defending league champ and arch-rival P-W at home in week 8. That could be for the league title if things break right.
Fowler is one of the great programs in state history and coach Ernst understands the pressure that goes along with it. If they can stay injury-free, the Eagles should be in the playoffs once again.
