Arlington went into this game firing on all cylinders, not only on offense, but on defense as well. On the first drive of the game, Brock Schamp, a DB for the Eagles, picked off the ball, leading to a touchdown from Cole Cramer to Jaden Roskelly for the early 7-0 lead.

And it was all Arlington from there. “When this group plays as hard as they can every play, they are a very special group.” This came from the Eagles head coach Markkus Ellis, and it seem the Eagles did just that the whole game. Getchell again goes 3 and out, (wouldn’t achieve a first down until a minute into the second quarter), and Cole Cramer would then throw for another touchdown.

Shortly into the third quarter, Getchell throws another pick, leading to another touchdown from Cole Cramer, who threw for 3 on the day. And don’t forget the special teams. They came in and blocked a punt, taking over at Getchell’s 40 yard line, setting Arlington up for yet another touchdown. The offensive line also had a huge contribution to this game. “Blocking was outstanding. We controlled the line of scrimmage,” This coming from the father of Cole Cramer, Kurt Cramer. This offensive line helped give Cole enough time in the pocket to put up the numbers to blow out Getchell.

There wasn’t one aspect of the Eagles that didn’t look good tonight. Their offense, defense, and special teams all contributed to what they accomplished. However, there is one thing they could work on, and it’s not what you would expect. Staying healthy. Arlington missed the first game of the year because of the number of players that were hurt on the team. As I was talking to Coach Ellis before the game, he told me that this is the healthiest this team has been the whole year, and this definitely showed during the game.

One of the game’s biggest stars was Brock Schamp. He was telling me that he loved the fact that this team never stopped fighting the whole game, resulting in one of Arlington’s biggest wins of the year. As I said before, if Arlington can stay healthy for most of the year, (which is easier said than done), they have something great brewing in this team.
