COSBY—This isn’t a dream. It’s not an illusion. Cosby’s first football game actually is tomorrow night.
Football season is finally upon us.
The long, grueling days of summer workouts and fall camp are officially over, and the Eagles will play under the lights for the first time this season Friday at Pigeon Forge (Radio: AM-1270 WLIK, Tape Delay). Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m.
While both teams will most assuredly have some hiccups and mistakes on the field with it being the first game of the year, Cosby head coach Kevin Hall feels his team is finally ready for its first matchup.
“I feel like we’re getting there,” Hall said. “We definitely need (Thursday), a good tempo day just to line them up and get them loose and ready.
“We’re going to go back over everything we’ve talked about this week, and just sharpen it up a little bit. I feel like if we have a good day of sharpening everything up (Thursday), I feel pretty good about it. I feel like they’re ready.”
