"We played pretty good," Rogers said. "Honestly we had the first game jitters. Last week having a bye didn't help us, but we knew that. We started playing hard and did what we had to do."

Turner was 4 of 7 for 63 yards and had 50 yards rushing for the Eagles in his first start at quarterback replacing school passing leader Sean McDonald.
"I think executed pretty well," Turner said. "The guys up front blocked well, we just hit the holes hard and did that the entire game."
The Eagles interior line dominated on both sides of the ball giving the Eagles multiple scoring opportunities with the team rushing for 367 yards on the ground seven scores.
"Our defense played great tonight," Rogers said, "Our defense sets up our offense. I think we have one of the best defenses in the area this year."

"We are happy to be 1-0," Parker said. "Sometimes after a bye week it's hard to get the motor running, but on a hot an humid night I thought our guys played pretty hard.
