Welcome to Naples High Golden Eagles Football!
There are only two types of people in the world -
Golden Eagles and those that want to be Golden Eagles!
Golden Eagles finish fast to soar past the Spartans, 40-0
The Golden Eagles got the outcome that many expected as they put away the Spartans in the kickoff Classic. Leading by 3 scores at the start of the 4th Quarter, Naples put a quick strike offense, and defense on display. Pat Pierre began the scoring explosion with a 58 yard burst for his 2nd touchdown of the night. Not to be outdone, Marcelino Charles romped into the end zone from 67 yards out to stretch the lead to 34-0 with 7:37 left. The scoring ended with a Noah Biggs pick 6, this score from 69 yards away, and the game ended under another running clock. Biggs wasn't the only defensive player to have a big game, as the "newcomers" got into the act as well. Kale Shust finished with 11 total tackles including a sack and forced a fumble. Andrew Wright was in on 9 tackles, 1 sack, and recovered a fumble. Sophomore Mark Viechec had 8 tackles, including 2 sacks of his own. Sawyer Schwartz "only" had 7 tackles, but 4 of them were quarterback sacks!
As impressive as this performance was, the BIG test will be on Friday against American Heritage. The only regular season loss last year was courtesy of the Stallions, and this game will require the young Eagles to be at mid season form. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 - See you at Staver Field!
