2009 Outlook: The Mitchell County Eagles will be young this season. The Eagles are only returning six starters from last season. Head coach, Dondrial Pinkins, will maintain the same philosophy - a balanced offensive attack and hard-nosed defense. I think we have talent and character, which is our strength. I felt we had an excellent spring. Our kids gave great effort all the way through spring and I'm excited about the season.
Dondrail Pinkins is gearing up for his first season as head coach of the Mitchell County football team after serving as a co head coach last year.
The Eagles offensive attack will be led by quarterback Jesse Adkins, reciever Justin Scott and runningback Desmond Jones.
Anthony Brown will be a force on both sides of the ball on the line of scrimmage.
The problem for the Eagles is that only seven players return who saw significant playing time last year.
"It's always hard because you have guys that haven't really played and you're trying to go in and kind of start from scratch and just build up and build the confidence and get the guys to go out and build the comradery and just keep playing and win week in and week out" said Pinkins.
Mitchell County will head to Cairo on August 13th for a scrimmage before opening the season on August 28th at Jones County.
