Over the next couple weeks we will take you inside training camp of your favorite Delco team. For full reports on every team, make sure to check out our annual football preview guide, due out Aug. 30.
1. Eagles confidence soaring
It’s clear that Chichester snapping a historic 31-game losing streak is doing wonders for the program. So much so, in fact, that the Eagles consider themselves to be a threat to win the Del Val League. It’s a possibility with the talent they have returning, but who could have imagined such a train of thought when they were losing all of those games? “I think we’re going to win the Del Val,” senior tight end and outside linebacker Corbyn Nyemah said. “We can do it.”
2. Anderson the change of pace
DeJuan Santana is the No. 1 running back and Na’ceem Antenor has the speed, quickness and agility to be a dangerous change-of-pace back, but head coach Ryan Smith is really high on fullback Trey Anderson as the third piece to what could be a potent ground attack. “He’s so strong and he’s worked really hard,” Smith said of Anderson. “He runs hard and he can break some tackles. I think we’ll have a pretty good ground game.”
