The Eagle Has Landed....
Well, it was one heck of an awesome season, but it ended on Saturday, Dec. 1, in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Div. II playoffs when the Northwest Missouri State Bearcats defeated the Chadron State College Eagles 26-13. It was a miserable day for football...snowing, north winds, windchill of 7 degrees...and while the Eagles gave it their all, it just wasn't enough.
But the Eagles can hold their heads high...they had a stellar season, and I know they will be back in fine form next year. We will deeply miss the winged feet of Danny Woodhead next year, but there are several very qualified young men just waiting to dazzle us next season. We will always consider Danny to be "one of us" and will watch his future career with great interest, support, and enthusiasm. Good luck in the future, Danny, and thank you for the joy you have brought us these past four years!
