Eagles footballers motivated for 2019 push

Article Image Alt Text

For many of Fairfield’s top athletes, including football players, a full schedule of multiple sports grinds away the school year.

Once June comes, the Eagles’ roster is tuckered out, ready for a month long vacation full of rest and video games.

So how do they get the motivation to hop back in the weight room, as the team did July 8 for strength and conditioning?

“Just start up,” head coach John Bachtel said. “Let’s go.”

With practice on the horizon, beginning Aug. 5, the process of creating a capable crew for the 2019 season is underway, looking to build on last season’s 9-3 finish.

Averaging around 50 participants in the high school workouts thus far, Bachtel is pleased with the production he has witnessed.

It’s another typical frigid day during the never-ending Pennsylvania winter; and I’m standing in my friend’s backyard half-naked.

Oh, and I’m covered in whipped cream, Maraschino cherries and chocolate sauce.

Mexia scored with seven seconds left and dealt Fairfield a heartbreaking 50-49 loss in a District 19-4A game at Mexia on Friday night.

The teams battled back and forth in a see-saw fourth quarter. Fairfield’s Devin Cunningham sank a free throw with 37 seconds left to snap a tie and give the Eagles a 49-48 advantage.

Mexia called a timeout following the basket. The Blackcats missed a shot that would have put them ahead with 18 seconds left. Both teams fought for the rebound and the ball went out of bounds off Fairfield as Mexia retained possession.

After taking a win during last week’s Homecoming game against Connally, Fairfield Eagles will face the Robinson Rockets Friday, Nov. 6, at the Robinson stadium. The Eagles beat the Connally Cougars Friday night 44-9, tying Fairfield’s win-loss record in District to 2-2.

“Robinson is 3-1 in district,” Head Coach John Bachtel said. “They had a big overtime win against Mexia last week. They are always explosive on offense. This year they are playing well on defense. The front four they have is causing opponents a lot of trouble.”

While Robinson’s overall score is 5-3, the team currently holds only one loss in district, making their record 3-1.
