The Look Ahead: Bald Eagle Area

For the Homecoming football game, the Tyrone Golden Eagles will host Bald Eagle Area this Friday.

Tyrone is coming off a forfeit win from Huntingdon, which brings their record to 2-3. With a few winnable games in a row, the Eagles are looking to pick up some momentum.

Bald Eagle is a very similar team to Tyrone with a smaller offensive line and quick, skilled players.

On the offensive side of the ball, the Bald Eagles feature a freshman quarterback, Carson Nagle (#9), and wildcat option Garret Burns (#3).

Taking the handoffs is usually Burns, who utilizes his versatility very well. The offensive line is solid but nothing compared to the likes of Bellwood-Antis and Clearfield.

Their offensive game plan all season has been consistent, averaging 10 bubble screens a game and a lot of vertical patterns. Jet motion is a common occurrence, as well to stir up confusion in the linebackers.

Defensively, Bald Eagle runs a lot of man coverage with a 4-3 defense. #14 Owen Irvin and #12 Max Yetsko are the anchors in the secondary for BEA. Their weak side coverage could hurt them on Friday with speedy Tyrone junior wideout Deegan Baldauf attacking their corners.

Also, a lot of cover one on guys like Ross Gampe can be punishing with his size and Cortlynd Rhoades also with his speed and agility.

Tyrone has their full offensive line back in action for the first time since week two against Juniata Valley. This will be key in letting Brady Ronan make his cuts and hopefully have a big night for the Eagles.

This will also be the first game Tyrone is not missing anyone from contact tracing since week one vs Bellwood.

Friday’s game is at Gray-Veterans Memorial Field @ 7:00. The Student Section theme is pajama night.
