Five members of the Class of 2018 will get to play under the Friday night football lights one more time.
Jonathan Bell '18, Isaiah Haywood '18, Keshaun Owens '18, Ryan Peltier '18 and Rocky Stark '18 were elected to play in the Miami Valley Football Coaches Association North-South All-Star Game on Friday, June 8. Elected to lead the south squad was Eagles head football coach Marcus Colvin.
“It’s a lot of hard work,” Colvin laughed. “It’s a cool honor, but it’s really cool to see these kids and have them combine and work together on one team.”
Schools from throughout the Miami Valley had players elected to their respective teams based upon the school’s location. For the Eagles, being on the south team meant being with players from many of the teams they faced throughout their 9-4 season.
“It’s good to be back with these guys one more time and play for our coaches one more time,” Peltier noted.
On being elected to the team, Bell shared, “It feels good to know that other coaches see what we brought to the table this year.”
Haywood added, “It shows how hard we worked and how much adversity we went through this year. I really loved how our team transitioned our senior year.”
While each of the Eagles has new opportunities ahead of them after CJ, Owens and Stark were the only ones out of the group who will continue playing football in college.
“It feels amazing to keep doing what I always dreamed to do,” Stark said.
