Eagles offense looking good in pass game

A few weeks ago, we had an update on how the city football programs looked during their summer camps and 7-on-7 drills.

Unfortunately, we were unable to get in touch with new Eisenhower coach Danny Edelman to check in on the Eagles. We didn't like having to print the story without Ike in it, but deadlines are deadlines.

With practice beginning statewide tomorrow, we decided to try again, and thankfully, we were able to touch base with the eloquent Edelman.

We're getting closer to football season every single day. Time... it never stops.

Eagles offense looking good

Eisenhower is bringing back the most much of its passing game from a year ago including quarterback Bentley Bross and receiver Connor Bridges. So far in 7-on-7, Bross has shown more of the talent that he's flashed in spots the last few years.

"I was very impressed with Bentley. Naturally, he just steps up and does the things you expect a three-year starter to do," Edelman said. "I was impressed with his mechanics and willingness to learn something new. He's a great young man."

That's not to say Bross is the only QB on the roster to impress Edelman, who is installing a new offense that has origins the same as MacArthur's. Terrance Young has also shown a lot of his passing ability in the same drills, but Bross clearly separated himself and will be the man calling the shots.

"They're both very hungry and learning well," Edelman said of Bross and Young. "They both stepped up to the plate and did a great job. I was very, very pleased with how they both threw the ball."

Edelman was at Arlington Sam Houston High in Arlington, Texas through the end of the school year, so he was unable to get to Lawton until early June. He got the job in April and in May, he and his players got a few days of spring ball in, but other than that, all they got were the 7-on-7's against themselves.
