2018 FOOTBALL TEAM PREVIEWS

BARBERS HILL EAGLES

 2017 Record: 6-3 Overall, 5-3 District

5th Place in District 21-5A

 

The end of the 2017 regular season left Barbers Hill Eagles' Head Coach Tom Westerberg with an unusual problem...boredom.  That problem was due to the fact that the championship coach found his team narrowly missing the playoffs, something that a coach with a 162-23 career mark is used to.  Of course, that boredom didn't last long as Westerberg and his staff set out quickly to reverse their 2017 fortunes.   While plenty of familiar faces return to the Eagle sideline (46 lettermen, 7 offensive starters, 5 defensive starter), the district will look somewhat different as many of the obstacles to the Eagles' returning to the playoffs will now come from the eastern part of the area. 

Head Coach: Tom Westerberg

Assistant Coaches: Adrian Baker, Chris Cauley, Danny Cowgill, Kevin Ellis, Todd Francis, Aaron Fuller, Josh Gaines, Kevin Kilgo, Brian Moore, Darren Seymour, Bruce Taylor, Kyle Westerberg, David Wilkinson, Ray White

Offense

7 starters return to the Eagle spread offense in 2018.  Senior quarterback Dalton Holland (66-103, 882 yd, 9 TDs in 2017) will return to lead the Barbers Hill offense.  Also returning to join him in the Eagle backfield will be senior running back Spencer Long (76 carries, 395 yd, 4 TD).  Returning to lead the Barbers Hill receivers will be senior wide outs Christian Rhodes (1st team all-district, 44 catches, 533 yd, 5 TDs) and  Brady Rogers (19 catches, 438 yd, 5 TDs).  Leading the way up front will be senior linemen Durham Avant (1st team all-district, 6'2", 282) and Ethan Haggler (6'3", 276).  Junior Casey Collier (6'5", 259) will also see time on the line.

Defense

5 starters return to the Eagle 4-2-5 defense in 2018.  Up front, senior linemen Dylan Ausmus (2nd team all-district, 6', 254) and Austin Ballard (6'2", 249) will be the leaders.  Junior A.J. Warby (5'11" 162) will lead the Barbers Hill linebacker corp.  Junior safety Brandon Hefferman (2nd team all-district, 5'10", 161) and senior defensive back Dylan Frazier will anchor the Eagle secondary.

Special Teams

The special teams positions will be sorted out in the fall.

Is transfer Hayden Johnson from Clear Falls going to unseat Dalton Holland at the Quaterback Position ? Exciting player in a tough 6A district last year.A lot of points but not many victories to show for it.Averaged 30 points a game and went 2 - 7.

Yes, Hayden Johnson has the starting QB position and Holland has moved back to wide out. This will make our offense very powerful and exciting. We will need to score lots of points this year to win because our defense will be very inexperienced.

First off Thank You Grad for the preview! I hope you are doing well. I'm not on here to much anymore, but read about your heath and you are in my prayers! Now about Hayden Johnson :) Doesn anyone have any stats on him from his junior season? I watched some videos on Hudl and he looks pretty good.
