Spring game shows off new faces with familiar result - Naples thumps North Miami 50-13
28 Seconds into the game, Naples found itself in an unfamiliar position, trailing 7-0. 16 seconds later, the Golden Eagles took a 8-7 lead and never looked back. While the Pioneers shocked the thousands of fans eager to catch a preview of the umpcoming season with a 78 yard running play, Wooby Theork made sure that the feeling wouldn't last. His 88 yard kickoff return and following 2 point conversion set the tone for another Eagles rout. Up 28-7 after just one quarter, the running clock followed just a minute into the 2nd half thanks to a 17 yard touchdown pass from Jordan Persad-Tirone to Lucas Lee.
The Golden Eagle coaches were pleased with what they saw, including some things to work on in the fall. With many new faces stepping up and a legacy not only to be preserved but extended, it looks to be another exciting year of football on the horizon at Naples High School. The Kickoff Classic is Friday August 19 here at Staver Field. The regular season opener on August 26 features state power American Heritage, runner up in the state championship in 3A last year. Both games start at 7:30 PM
