COSBY—A difficult season finally comes to an end tomorrow for the Cosby football team. The Eagles were unable to grab much momentum this season, but when they did, a key injury or two seemed to follow.

Cosby (1-8, 1-4) has been plagued with an inordinate amount of injuries. At one point against The King's Academy last week, the Eagles were forced to play five quarterbacks after injuries piled up against Cosby.

In the midst of all the Eagles' injuries, a football game will still be played tomorrow as Unaka (3-6, 2-3) travels to Raymond Large Field for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff, and the Eagles, like always, will take the field expecting to win. (RADIO: WLIK-1270 AM, Tape Delay).

"We've got enough to play," Cosby head coach Kevin Hall said. "I've had 19 at practice all week. We've got one, possibly two that might be able to come back and play this week that we haven't had at practice yet.

"It's pretty thin, but we've got the kids to put out there to feel like we can win a ball game. That's what we've told them all week. Regardless of who you are or what position you're in, we're putting a plan together to go and win the ball game this week."
