Little Eagles' Sports Club Fall Season Off to a Strong Start

Little Eagles Sports Club

Area youth sports programs have always been around as the fall season generally means football for the boys and volleyball for the girls. In the past, youth sports also meant that all the small towns had to travel to Lamar to take part in their recreation leagues.

After a dominating performance against Genoa-Hugo in their season opener a week ago, Eads Eagles fans were wondering if their Purple & Gold was the real deal.  After all, it had been a long year last year as the fans watched a team loaded with freshmen and sophomores struggle to find their bearings in varsity high school football.  But, evidently, with a lot of weight room work, some lessons from the school of hard knocks, and the simple fact that freshmen boys have a whole lot of growing left in them, the Eagles have managed to turn things around after they dominated a physical Manzanola team, 78-48, in front of the Eagle fan base.
