SCOTT EAGLES Head Coach: Dave Campbell (12-30 @ Scott, four years, 12-30 overall) 2011 Record: 4-6, 1-3
Overview: Head coach Dave Campbell sees the light and the end of the tunnel for Scott football. The Eagles have never had a winning season. The 2012 team looks to change all that. This could be a monumental campaign for the program. Scott will call upon a large contingent of juniors to take it up a level. No matter what this team will have to make their own breaks if they want to jump this hurdle.
A big group of players line up across the front for the Scott offense and defense. Chase Ford and Trevor Evans set the tone. They combined for 7.0 sacks in 2011. Brandon Edmonds is also poised for big year. Juniors Nathan Penick, Corey Fitzwater, Blake Gay and Kameron Crim will also make impacts this fall. Classmates Jordan Smith, Josh Castleman, Nick Thurza and Chris Roberts are proven commodities in the defensive back seven.
Ben Osborne should be more comfortable in his second season under center. He threw for 525 yards and ran for another 297 while accounting for eight touchdowns as a sophomore. Look for Smith, Roberts, Castleman and Reed Sparta to contribute heavily at the skill positions. Fitzwater and Crim have college potential on the line.
