CAMILLA, GA (WALB) - The Mitchell County Eagles are excited about their returning talent and a new classification this season.

Dondrial Pinkins said. "I'm excited about moving down, we have not too many guys in this school system so that's gonna help us out a lot. Just going down to Single A. Not having to compete with Fitzgerald, Brooks, the Thomasvilles. So I think its going to help us out a lot."
