Eagles striving to turn things around...
By Robert Przybylo
SeeWorth Academy is already behind the eight ball most times before it even steps onto the field. It’s not really because of the talent level. It’s more because of the lack of personnel.
Talking with head coach Robert Walker, it’s just a two-man job for the Eagles. That just isn’t easy.
Walker and Brian Sexton do just about everything for the school, but the two men can only do so much.
The Eagles have another chance to pick up their first win Thursday night against Centennial at Star Spencer High School where your friendly neighborhood Boneman will be in attendance.
Walker realizes the Eagles won’t be contending for a state title anytime soon, but he just wants to start building a solid foundation.
He said though last year’s team had struggles as well, it’s the lack of leadership that is really hurting this season.
That’s not to say there aren’t some good points. Walker raves when he’s talking about junior D’Juan Hughes, calling him a ball-hawk. He’s also high on RB Kendrick Vick.
SeeWorth has 25 kids out, but its losing kids left and right for various reasons. Walker said last week he lost five kids because of eligibility.
Could you imagine Carl Albert or Norman North all the sudden not being able to play with some of their top dogs?
Anyway, Walker said he’s seen signs of improvement, and he’s getting a couple of kids back this week. Should be a competitive scrap.
