Eagle Eye: How does the team match up against Huntington?

Coach Franco: “I think it’s a good match up for us. I think size wise we’re very equal, I think our receivers and defensive backs match up against their receivers and defensive backs as well. I think we even have a good quarterback match up. So all in all I think it’s a good match up two rivals so it should be a really intense game.”

I think it’s a good match up for us. I think size wise we’re very equal, I think our receivers and defensive backs match up against their receivers and defensive backs as well.”

EE: How does the team look this week of practice?

CF: “I thought our practice was excellent this week. I was very pleased with our practice week. This is that last week when you know it’s the last week can be kinda tough at times but I thought the attitude was really good I thought the focus was really good overall.”

EE: What do you expect to see from Huntington?

CF: “Huntington will run a spread offense they will try to get the ball to number 80. They’re gonna try to throw deep to him and throw the ball every which way. They also will try to get number fourteen the ball and move him around and he’ll take some wildcat snaps to get the ball. So I would say number 80, 14, and 12 are the three guys they’ll try to get to on offense.”

EE: How do you think the lines match up this week?

CF: “I think our linemen are very equal to theirs. This might be a pretty equal match up I think size wise we’re about the same, quickness wise we’re the same and I think experience wise we’re about the same, so it should be a pretty equal match up up front.”

EE: What was your favorite memory from this year?

CF: “The attitude from summer conditioning and summer practice that was great to see such a new attitude being new and everything not fully knowing what to expect.”

EE: What was your overall fondest moment of this year?

CF: “For me it was walking out on the field really for the first time on Meet the Eagles night. It was my first time really the first time out there officially as the head coach since the 2011 championship at Hershey walking out on Meet the Eagles night that was just really special.”
