The Southland Eagles took football flight last year, going 11-2 and reaching the regional finals. With four offensive and two defensive started back, Kyle Hauk takes over as head coach.
"We're real excited. Coach Hamilton and Coach Rucker have done a wonderful job rebuilding that Southland program. Looking forward to some wonderful things in Southland America."
In a tough district with Motley County, Petersburg and Wilson, the Eagles will battle for a playoff spot.
"The district got much tougher. We're hoping to work the kinks out by the time we get to district. We're hoping to compete and continue a little playoff steak Southland has started."
