July 31-- The Montgomery County High School Eagles are starting the 2018 season after a 6-5 overall record last year. The Eagles made the playoffs first the first time in fifteen years. Charlton County defeated the Eagles in a shootout in the first round of State Playoffs. The Eagles are led by third year Head Coach John Bowen.

“This year we are going to have to be more consistent on offense and that is going to be our key to success. We need to control the ball on offense and play well on defense. We are not going to be able to get up and down the field in a track meet and have shootouts on the scoreboard with other teams.” Coach Bowen stated.

“We need to take advantage of our schedule this year because we play our first five games at home. We need to get off to a fast start and that is going to be dictated by how well we can run the ball and that will also help out our defense as well. We also need to be more physical with our running game. The quarterback position this year will have to be more of a game manger. It is going to be tough this season to try and replace three of our playmakers but, I feel with the success and confidence we have had the past few years I look for another good season.” Coach Bowen said.

Montgomery County opens the season August 17th at home against the Atkinson County Rebels. .
