GOLDTHWAITE, Texas The Goldthwaite Eagles are not happy with how 2016 went. They were a playoff team but they want to be better and that's added to their motivation this preseason.
The Eagles were a third place team and a playoff team last year. That's not good enough for this year's senior class. They are preaching hard work, consistency, and improvement in the preseason camp.
Goldthwaite should be good at the skill positions again this season. They return plenty of talent in those spots. What they lack is depth. The roster is thin in general but especially in the trenches.
Greg Proffitt says that depth will be a major issue of the Eagles don't stay healthy. He knows they're talented but he also know a few injuries could have a major impact on their season.
