The first year under Patrick Lord wasn’t exactly the greatest in Eisenhower football history. The Eagles, behind quarterback Richard Redd, were exciting offensively but couldn’t stop anyone on defense, leading to a 1-9 record and a three-way tie for last place in the Citrus Belt League.
But despite that, Lord is pumped. With 17 starters returning from last year’s youthful group and an entire offseason to work with, the Eagles feel that their performance in 2010 will show considerable improvement.
“I feel that we’ve learned a lot and have come more together as a team because of what we went through,” Lord said. “I feel like these kids are ready to win and, more importantly, they think they can win.”
