U-W-L takes the field for the 1-st time this season.
The Eagles holding their 1-st practice under the lights.
La Crosse coming
Off a disappointing season .
they went 3-and-7.
It's year four for head coach Joel Dettwiler.
By now he's got his own guys in there.
So the pressure might be on a little to see a turnaround
he knows it.
I don't think anybody can put pressure on me more
than I can put on myself.
I think that's one thing that would be consistent
that we've had for four years.
It's a time where I want us to have fun.
The goal is to play as good as a team as we can and
then the destination will be wins.
I think that's the thing we'll be looking at.
So I'm not really looking at that.
I don't think our kids are worried about that.
You can look at our schedule and get scared if you
want to but we have to play Dubuque before we play
For the 1-st time under Dettwiler .
he's got a true starting quarterback coming back.
Trent Cummings is the guy.
He threw seven touchdowns to three interceptions.
The Eagles' three wins came when he started.
It's the first time we've had a pretty clear path
with that position and I think that provides a lot
of stability for our team, especially for our offense,
and I think guys are going to rally behind him and
it's going to be a fun deal.
It's fun as the head coach, I don't want to say it's
settling but it's fun as the head coach to have a
guy like that in that position that can go out and
make some plays for us.
He mentioned that tough schedule .
Eagles open the season September 6-th at Dubuque.
