New Madrid County Central is looking for big things this season after finishing 16-10 last year, losing to Charleston in the district championship game on a last second shot.
The Eagles return four starters; Kony Ealy (6-5, sr.), Dontre Jenkins (6-1, sr.), G'Darius Stevenson (6-1, jr.) and Keith Holmes (5-10, jr.).
They will be joined by LaMonte Nelson and William Bledsoe who both saw some varsity time last season. Rodney Anderson and DeAdrean Grissom also join the fold this year.
"Defense will be the key for us," said coach Travis Day. "We will go as far as our bench will take us."
