On May 15, 2017 I stopped by East Mecklenburg High School to see how spring football was going for the Eagles. Spring football? It was and sunny and hot, 90+ degrees out there yesterday. I may have gotten a little sun burn!
I learned that it's been a challege getting all the kids out on the field, some kids were taking IB tets and teachers wouldn't release them until workouts were almost over. We learned that former West Charlotte Head football coach Daren Hart has been brought on as Defensive Coordinator.
One of my favorite players, Sayyid Muhammad who played for Coach Shuford at Olympic, and played at North Carolina Central will get his coaching debut as a defensive back coach.
But with helmets and shoulder pads on, lineman ran drills, quarterback threw to receivers, running backs, DBs and linebackers ran drills while kickers kicked. Later on they ran some plays, both running and passing and then called it a day.
Below are videos from my visit...
