JV Eagles off to a good start in 2016

Published 3:00 am Thursday, September 8, 2016

The Goshen Junior Varsity Eagles have gotten off to a roaring 2-1 start in 2016 and things continue to look up for head coach Robbie Kinsaul.

After falling to Pike County to begin the year, the Eagles have rattled off a 22-20 win over Brantley and a 40-21 win over Highland Home.

“We played a really good team in Pike County in game one and they beat us pretty good,” Kinsaul said. “We told them that last year we started the same way. They have a good program down there. We had to find our way, and we have gotten better each week.”

The Eagles have scored 62 points in their two wins with a balanced offense.

“We like to run the football, but we feel like we are really balanced,” Kinsaul said. “We feel like we can run and we have Bryan Galloway throwing the ball. In that first game, I think he was close to 175 to 200 yards passing. That is really good at any level.”

The players on the junior varsity Eagles are getting accustomed to playing in a system that fits what the older players are running at the varsity level.

“It’s always big because that is you future,” Kinsaul said. “That is where it starts, whether it’s football, basketball, baseball or softball. We try to keep them positive and play just one play at a time.”

The Eagles will return home at 7 p.m. Tuesday when they take on the Flying Squadron.
