Screamin' Eagles Continue to Rise

October 15, 2014

By Kevin O’Rourke

 

The Seneca Valley Screaming Eagles have been flying high since their loss to cross-town rivals Northwest, they’ve beat up on Bethesda-Chevy Chase and Northwood, and upset previously unbeaten Sherwood in a statement win. The Screaming Eagles have earned their way into the MoCoFootball.com Elite Six ranking, entering the poll at number five.

   Coach Fred Kim hopes his 5-1 team can continue to rise and hit their stride as a match-up with 6-0 Damascus looms in two weeks. However, Thursday night the Eagles will host their neighbors to the north, 2-4 Watkins Mill High School.

   “Traditionally, no matter what each of our records are, Watkins Mills always play us tough,” said Kim. “It is never a blowout. The kids all know each other and have played against each other, so they are not intimidated. There is no doubt they will come out swinging.”

   Coach Kim hopes his team will continue coming out strong and jump out to an early lead, as the team has done in the last two games with Sherwood and Northwood. “That was our emphasis all week to get out of the blocks in a hurry, so that we are used it and that it can carry over week after week,” said Kim. “Hopefully we can continue this trend from here on out. The players know the importance of this and can see the difference.”

   “We must continue to do what we have been doing the last two weeks,” He said, “to come out blazing and try to jump out on top of them early and then push the pedal down. We cannot let up and keep them in the game. It will be a dog fight if we do so.”

   He is asking his team not to settle for a lead but to keep the pressure on the Wolverines. “One of the keys,” he said, “will be not to let up and assume that Watkins Mill will lay down against us. They have athletes. They are skilled enough to hurt us.”

   The Watkins Mill Wolverines have never beaten the Screaming Eagles, last year Seneca Valley won 37-0.
