Week 1 Victory against the Bay Area Reapers!

A player (Austin Baker #47) lines up at Defensive Tackle for the last play of the game, a scramble ensues and end up with an interception in the flats on the opposite side of the field! Final buzzer, week one concludes and your Florida War Eagles in Campbell Park. 27-9 Victory over the inner-county rival, Bay Area Reapers.

The game started slowly for the War Eagles with the first drive ultimately ending up in an interception. A quick 3-and-out, put the Offense back on the field focused and determined for a punishing ground assault. Decedric Dillard #23 finishes the drive off with a 2 yard TD run. Our once MVP, and runner-up last season scores the first TD for the War Eagles for the 3rd season in a row!

The Offense from there, Ronnie Cohen #5 took command with several tough hard-earned yards through, around, and straight past would be tacklers. On 8 Carries, he gained 101 yards averaging more than 12.5 a carry! Tyrone Hendrix #4 wins two 1v1 matchups on the outside for two big plays, one being a TD. Yasmin Coleman #2 had a great night as well with 4 Receptions, 61 yards, and a TD. Where Yasmin shined was YAC with more than half of his yardage total being as such.

Defensively, as is the War Eagle brand, was punishing! With 5 Sacks, 3 Forced Fumbles (one of which, was returned for a TD by Mr. Showtime himself, Damo Davis #3), and 3 interceptions the defense did what they always do. Dominate and have fun while talking a little smack. "Pick" Crumitie #6 salvaged the only target that came his way with an Interception lending credence to his moniker. Leo Corrigan #51 had a great debut with 2 sacks and a forced fumble while also forcing 5 QB hurries. Keith McNeil #8 and Terry Collins #41 are off to the races again for another season totaling 3 sacks between them.

Overall, it was a great game with a ton of great players playing the game they love. Hats of to the Reapers Organization for putting on such a great event!
