TEMPLETON, Calif. - In 2012, the Templeton Eagles offense fittingly soared.
It may be a different story this season, however, as Templeton hopes their new roster will find a new identity on the ground.
"We'll definitely be a smaller, speedier team," says senior fullback Carlos Romero, "but I think we can outrun some guys, outrun some teams."
Templeton, who finished 7-4 a season ago, did much of their damage through the air. Of the Eagles 38 offensive touchdowns in 2012, over half came via the passing game. The Eagles, however, must replace Alex Elterman at QB, and virtually their entire receiving group as well.
"Right now we are worried about ourselves," says Templeton Head Coach Dan Loney, "we are going with that old standby adage that we are going to worry about what we do and not worry about who we play."
Loney says he has simplfied the playbook for his young roster, but expectations in Templeton remain high.
The Eagles open regular season play on Friday against Carpinteria. Templeton knocked off the Warriors in their opener last season, 49-42.
