Eagles gear up for season opener after last scrimmage

The Eagles vastly improved from last week after their final scrimmage against San Antonio Kennedy at home.

“I thought we took big steps forward from the first scrimmage,” Eagle head coach Tab Dumont said.

“The kids hustled to the ball well and our assignments became better.”

Pleasanton worked out its kinks on the gridiron as it prepares for the season opener Friday night.

“We improved on fundamentals the most last week,” Dumont said.

“The offensive line stayed on blocks longer and did much better. The running backs found the holes more and the wide recievers caught the ball well. Defensively, pursuit was much better than the week before as well.”

With two scrimmages under their belts, the Eagles gear up for the season opener Friday night against San Antonio Edison at Alamo Stadium.

“The kids and I are excited about playing there,” Dumont said.

“Edison has a good team and are a mirror image of us. They have the same offense and same type of kids. It should be a good game.”

Last year, Pleasanton defeated Edison 28-10 on the road.

Kick off is set for 7:30 p.m. Friday night at the Rock Pile.
