Coach: Scott Gibson, second year

Last season: 2-8, 1-6 TAAC

Returning letter winners: 9

Returning starters: offense 6, defense 5

Schemes: Spread/4-3

Top players: Seniors Isaac Barringer, 6-4, 260, OT-LB; Josh Winzeler, 6-3, 200, QB-S; Brian Freeman, 5-10, 220, TE-LB; Tevin Williams, 5-10, 155, WR-DB; Aaron Ward, 6-3, 305, OL-DL; Robert Phelps, 5-9, 185, OL-DL. Sophomore Brett Freeman, 5-10, 204, RB-LB.

Outlook: The Eagles expect to climb a bit in the TAAC standings, but are young and inexperienced overall, and will rely heavily on what Gibson expects to be an improved defense. TC was picked to place fourth in the TAAC. Barringer had 83 tackles a year ago, and Winzeler topped the TAAC with 1,779 passing yards, and threw 13 TDs. Williams rushed for 527 yards and 7 TDs, plus caught 24 passes for 333 yards.

"Although we're young, we're faster than last year and we will improve upon last year's defensive play," Gibson said. "We're optimistic about our chances to win the TAAC, provided we stay healthy."
